I helped make a video game

During my third semester in the MoVal Gaming program I and the rest of the artists were invited to participate in the making of video games with students at the University of Riversides game programming course. The game I worked on was called segway smashers, I created all of the artwork and a 5 of UCR’s students programmed the game. The game was built on the OGRE engine and I have to say, if I never see OGRE I will be all too happy. After many problems we finally got a working proof of concept together and the video on the bottom shows the game in action. The video clip doesnt show the final boss which is the red version of the goblin.

This is the first model I made in Maya, it was quite the learning experience when I started and I ran into many difficulties. The model is a called a Pitlord. The Pitlord is from the Warcraft Universe created by Blizzard Entertainment. I finished my first semester and continued working on it for the next 3 classes.

Hello world!

Well lets start this crazyness shall we, first of all an introduction. My name is Chad Kanehokuokalani Van Wye. I know, I know what the heck kind of middle name is Kanehokuokalani. Well Kanehokuokalani is a Hawaiian name. My grandmother  on my fathers side Louisana Huliwahine Kauhola was pure hawaiian which is a pretty special thing. I would consider myself a quarter Hawaiian and the rest just your typical mongrel white boy. A couple years back I started taking classes on 3d animation, modelling, and rendering. Since then I have finished all of the courses being taught at Moreno Valley College. I am going to start this blog off with the different models and animations that I worked on at Moreno Valley College.
