I am happy with how my portfolio turned out, I had most of my best work put in it and I presented it as professionally as I could have and shown my work as best as it could be presented. I had a few bits in the portfolio which were not yet complete such as my VFX project as I had not had enough time to finalize the footage and effects and my game idea as I struggled with coming up with an idea so I settled on just making a simple design to put in my portfolio. Overall I feel that I have put my best work from my first year in this portfolio and I am looking forward to improving upon it in the second year and over the time off. where I will continue to post frequent blogs about my work and what I am doing.
The progress I have made over this year is actually quite amazing in my opinion, considering at the start I could barely use any of the software but through constant use of the programs I have begun to develop an understanding of most of the software to the point where I feel it greatly improves the quality of my work that I produce. As for my work, I think that I have developed my skills most where 3D Modeling and Animation is concerned as I have spent the most time attempting and improving these skills.
On my second year of the Nextgen course, I would like to specialize in either an Animation or 3D Modelling area as like I mentioned before these are the disciplines that I have spent the most time in. This is mostly due to the fact that I enjoy them a lot more compared to other areas on the course and I feel that this shows in the quality of work that I can produce using the Maya software.
