Firmament (Proof of Concept) - Cyan, Inc.

Firmament is a Cyan, Inc. proof of concept project for a new IP. The project has a trailer and a playable demo - which will be shown at GDC 2018.

My responsibilities for the demo included

-Block out, set dressing and lighting parts of the Hub area
-Modeling, texturing, and materials for the mechanical elements in the demo
-The high poly and low poly for the Transport pod's exterior were created by Derrick Robinson. I was tasked with taking the model to a completed state - UV mapping, texture baking, materials, rigging, animation, and initial blueprint setup
-I was fully responsible for the transport pod's interior

My additional responsibilities for the trailer included
-Set dressing and lighting the laboratory and pipework scene
