My father works for Save the Manatee club which works to protect manatees and their environment as well as the other animals that share that same environment.
You can find out more about them here www.SaveTheManatee.org
My dad would like to start creating some animated shorts and public service announcements featuring animated manatees.
This gave a me good reason to start fleshing out some of my 3d portfolio, so my first 3d character is JB the Manatee.
Having used 3ds Max and currently Maya I have tinkered and experimented with lots of aspects of the 3d pipeline but never really dedicated to taking a character through the full pipeline from creation, modeling, rigging animating etc.
Upcoming posts will show some of the progression of JB over the last serveral months.
