About Me

Hello all. I'm Erin, a senior Animation major, and Studio Art and Creative Writing double minor. As could be expected, I really enjoy animated movies and cartoon shows. But, when I can, I also like to get outside and hike. My favorite place to vacation is the Black Hills in South Dakota. The gigantic granite outcrops are really cool to looks at, and the Bad Lands aren't to far away.

When I'm not working on school projects, or out vacationing, I like to spend my time sketching or modeling. When i came to school, I didn't think I'd like working with 3D molding very much. But, after getting accustomed to the software, I discovered I really enjoyed it.

When I graduate, I hope to get a job in the marketing sector for a bit. Once I've saved a suitable nest egg, I'll move on to animating for games or TV, and see where life goes from there.

Featured Projects


Capstone Film

Capstone Film

This is a screenshot of one of the backgrounds for my senior animation capstone project. The final piece is still in production, so the name is not locked in yet and some colors and whatnot may change. But it is coming along nicely, and I'm really looking forward to showing off the finished piece.

Lizard Sketch

Lizard Sketch

Most of the sketching I do is in a sketch book. But I'd like to start improving my digital painting skills. So I drew out a fun little lizard-type creature, and rendered him out using some of the same techniques I employ in my sketchbook. It came out nicely, but next I want to step out of my comfort zone and try painting in a more blended way.

Character Model

Character Model

In this project, I had to model, re-topologize, and rig a 3D character. This was the first time I had ever done this, and it was really fun. We even went so far last to set up blend shapes for the face, so the character can create different expressions as well as pose.
