CALL OF DUTY MODERN WARFARE 2
I have just been allowed to show this.
Let me just say this project means a lot to me, as it opened an opportunity for me to work for one of my favorite Japanese companies.
Also this project was a special one, I was asked to get it sculpted, molded/casted, and painted within 2 and a half weeks, which was insane, since the character has so much gear ,3 pairs of arms,and details, my baby daughter Erika was due any day within those two weeks of grueling work, with another big Gears of war 2 project on top of us ( see post before this one ) and sure enough 4 days before the deadline she was born, making things a bit harder for me and everyone involved, we were told it would not be possible to get this done, but still they trusted us, and we delivered.
My baby daughter Erika was born with some health/digestive issues, so much so that she had to be rushed to UCLA medical to get microsurgery, needless to say your ( Clubhouse members/family and friends) support/posts/e-mails helped me through this.
Anyway this project was a blessing in disguise, it has literally changed my life and my career, taking me to a direction I always wanted but that otherwise would have been just a dream, and now it is a reality, I can finally get to come up with ideas, and actually bring them to life the way I see fit, no more restrictions! Thanks Koto and Triforce!
