Steam Engine & Pump
3D Model

I made this model a while back to test animations in Unreal 4, unfortunately Unreal 4 turned out not to import positional & rotational animations made in Maya, so I'm stuck using it in Unity 5 if I want to see the animations. For the modelling and animating I used Maya 2016, Texturing was done in NDO and Substance Painter.

About Me


A short introduction

My name is Olaf Gillot, I am 20 years old and currently studying game art at MediaCollege Amsterdam. My goal is to achieve a high level of realism in 3D assets, and make sure the player is immersed in the game or in a 3D environment. I love working together in teams and always aim to make the most out of any project.

I spend a lot of my spare time practising my modelling skills, texturing skills and knowledge about game design and its terminology. Instead of being specifically good at one program or skillset I aim to be good at 3D modelling but also know a broad range of side traits so I can have decent conversations with for example a developer or an audio designer and not constantly need to ask explainations about terminology. When I am not doing anything related to 3D art and game art I enjoy playing games myself and hanging out with friends. Also a decent Game of Thrones viewer.

My Skills


Most of the software I know so far

3D modelling

I started working in Blender about 6 years ago. When joining MediaCollege I picked up Cinema 4D and learned most of the ins and outs of making a game model in that. When realising Cinema 4D wasn't going to do it for high-end models I switched to Maya 2016 for most of my modelling work and Mudbox for sculpting. Occasionally I still use Cinema 4D because of it's neat spline tools and easy to use physics system.

Texturing

Ages ago I did texturing in Photoshop. I would unwrap a model, render the UV layout to a PNG and fill in the UV spaces with textures. When learning about PBR materials I used NDO and CrazyBump to generate/paint normals and sometimes event hand-painted the roughness maps. This quickly changed when learning to use Substance Painter, which is now my main tool for texturing. In rare situations I still use NDO or DDO. I found that sometimes NDO is slightly faster to make simple details in a normal map compared to baking a high poly or using Substance Painter.

Animation & Rigging

Animation was something I got interested in really soon when starting to learn Unity, adding moving assets to an environment instantly gives it so much more feel. I mostly animate non-humanoid non-organic models, such as machinery, weapons and sometimes collapsing buildings. Rigging isn't my best skill, I do know the basics but I will always be in tears while weight-painting a character. However, getting better in humanoid animations and rigging is definitely on my to-do list.

Game Engines

The first game engine I learned was Unity 4 and later 5. I loved the interface but hated needing to ask a programmer to do even the simpelest things for me, like triggering animations by walking in trigger boxes and such. After working with Unity 5 for over a year I started to learn Unreal Engine 4. I instantly fell in love with the Blueprint system which allowed me to do a lot of the basic programming myself.

What I've been doing lately

A brand new website!

I decided my old website had to go. It felt like I had outgrown the visual style and layout. So I decided to go for a much sleeker and more "one-page-template" feel... [ read more ]

So much portfolio work to be made!

My internship at Turtleneck Studios is going great. However, due to the internship being 5 months long I'll have to start looking a for new internship location soon. Time to make some new 3D work... [ read more ]

Internship!

I got accepted as a 3D intern at Turtleneck Studios, meaning I'll soon be working on their game "RITE of ILK". I'll hopefully share some work with their permission soon... [ read more ]
