While my current position as an assistant professor does not permit much time to pursue my personal art and design, this is an area of the site I hope to add to in coming years as I get more comfortable in the job. This is a mix of digital and analog work.

3D character: Isabelle Dahl

Isabelle (2005)

3D Studio Max and Photoshop

Isabelle Dahl was created as part a game concept.In the game design, she is the player's mentor. Irreverent, not terribly patient, she is sometimes more interested in baseball scores than helping. She follows and aids the player's progress.
Isabelle was designed as a semi-low poly character (9700 polygons).
