A Maya UI shot of the all the elements inside of the Bathroom Scene

The Capital Building Portrait was painted by my sister, Janelle Lowry, while living in Cincinnati.
The Flower portrait was painted by one of my sister's close friend, Alyssa Deutsch.
I drew the orthographic views of the bear and was mean to be my first 3D character but work was started but never finished on the project 

Various wireframe shots of different assets in the bathroom scene

versace versense bottle

Maya 2012, Photoshop CS5, mental ray, dielectric shader

A Maya scene view of the bottle with the cap inside the lightbox.

A glass test with a checkerboard design on the lightbox mesh to PROVE that the glass on the outside and inside curved.  Additionally, since the design has two different pieces of glass with different refractive qualities, I tested both separately before adding them together.  This pic only shows them added together

 Label designed in Photoshop to resemble to original bottle label.  I know that my label is different from the real label because I did not curve the bottom part of the lid on the can at the bottom, the design that reads "36 M".

A base model of the bottle with all of the shapes in places and simple shaders attached.

A picture of the bottle. The bottle was actually my sisters and I saw it laying around her apartment one day and was like, "Hey, that would be cool to model and render."

faucet sink Cabinet

Maya 2012, Photoshop CS6, mental ray

A view from inside Maya of the lightbox setup that I constructed for the Vanity and the Faucet.  

Above are pictures that I took of a Vanity and Faucet that I found at my neighborhood Lowe's Home Improvement Store that I decided to model.  Became good practice for finding objects in the real world and realizing what type of orthographic views I would need in order to accurately model.

kiki Rig

A screen shot of my kiki Rig! As you can see the rig itself is only from her waist up at this particular time.  The face is fully set up with mel scripted phoneme mouths (as you can see on the current shelf with user created icons) and mel scripted eyebrow quick targets.  Currently animating a scene with kikiRig but i wanted to show off the rig on my site because it is probably the thing I have invested the most time on and I HAVE NOT posted a picture of it on my site yet.

base Female Jog Cycle Offset Animation

base Female Jog Cycle Offset Animation from Jonathan Lowry on Vimeo.
A base female jog cycle animation using the morpheus rig
The animation is 24fps.
The jog cycle spacing was originally at 24 frames but now reaches 19,20,21
Channels are uniquely offset from predecessor to create uniqueness on a base level

This video required me to learning Maya's quick sets function, color coding animation layers, and dope sheet
