Art & Code Portfolio
Austin William Brennan
A showcase of some of the projects I have worked on recently.
I am in my final year of graduate school in the Digital Production Arts M.F.A. program at Clemson University. I am coming into the program with a B.S. degree in Computer Science also from Clemson. I love graphics related programming and art. I'm passionate about creating engaging experiences in virtual worlds. I plan to use these skills to transition into a technical artist role in the games or visual effects industry.
In my free time I like painting, exercising, watching TV shows & films, and playing video games, I also enjoy doing tutorials to learn how to use the hottest technology in the industry. I've recently started creating tutorials myself on my Vimeo channel.
This is a game of celestial vengeance on a planetary scale made possible through the hard work of three Digital Production Arts students and myself. In this game, you play as an aggravated Pluto, who is upset that he is no longer considered a planet. Pluto's goal is to take over the solar system one planet at a time to prove his superiority over the other celestial bodies.
In this demo I am showcasing the Venus level. Pluto is able to grow in size by breaking off pieces of asteroids and eating them. Once he is large enough, he is ready to take on Venus in a boss fight at the center of the level.
I am responsible for the gameplay design and programming, as well as all of the background and particle effects in the game. I also assist team members with technical troubleshooting for Maya, Unity, and GitHub.
