Myungsu Hong - Modeling/Texturing Demo Reel

Hi Everyone,

My name is Myungsu Hong, and I'll graduate from Vancouver Film School next week.
Here is my last Modeling/Texturing demo reel.
I used XSI , Z-brush for Modeling, photoshop, bodypaint3D, Z-brush for Texturing,
Maya for Lighting, Shading, Rendering, After Effects, Shake for Compositing.

Currently looking for work. Comments and Crits welcome

finally its the end :O

you did an awsome job with your last two models (especially in such a short time), Abe is my favourite model in your reel, you clearly showed abillities to composite, good luck on job searching, all the best!

p.s. thanks for all the zbrush help this year, yoda

cool texturing, my only crit is that its missing something very important for a modeling reel, the wireframes
i specially like the texturing on the old man

Pretty good reel. My crits, besides what was mentioned, are:
I think Achilles head is a bit too small.
I feel there needs to be more definition in the forms and muscles of the models. The old man's face particularly needs more definition. Behind his ears are not defined or seperated enough from the skull. Odd bump of flesh behind the old man's neck that doesn't look natural. His nose could use more definition as well.
Sapiers looks a bit plastic, but overall your textures are good. Wish you success.

As always, great modeling and texturing, beautiful lighting and rendering, sweet compositing... but we get back to the same thing: you can't model properly from your reference. 1) Orlando Bloom as Legolas is all wrong. He's too muscular, I'm not seeing pointy ears, and where are his bow and arrows? 2) I'm not even going to comment on your self-portrait. 3) Spiderman? I don't think so. Not even with Venom did he ever look like that.

Sorry. I couldn't help myself. Hope you got a good laugh out of that. Seriously, though, awesome work from a very hard-working and talented guy. 5 stars! Best of luck to you, man!
