Chick-fil-A and Augmented Reality

Here is an example of the work I did for the project:

I textured many of the hero cows, adjusted the model of a generic cow model to represent each hero cow, and I animated the hero cow Decibel.  Decibel is animated in quick animation cycles for gaming purposes, but I strung them altogether for this animation video.

Another project at work in which I created 3D assets.  There are 2 games that involve a dog (a black lab and a yellow lab), I created its rig and animations and I also created a lot of the environments and environment assets throughout the various games.
