Hi, my name is Linghe Jia, people also call me Michelle. I am an animation student studying at Otis College of Art and Design, To me, the area I am apt in is 3D and 2D animation. The software I use most often are Maya and Procreate. I spent a lot of time learning Chinese painting when I was a kid, and I have always been particularly impressed by Chinese ink painting animation, because it is a unique animation style that is not easily duplicated. I am hoping to create similar innovative animation, with the possibility of a more diverse style of 3D animation myself one day.
My animation demo reel.
This is a environment setting from my unfinished animation Wu Long Niang (Black Dragon’s Mother), and her name is ZoHo. I do all the 3D works also paint all the textures and lighting.
Is a key art of the main character Zoho been pregnant and birth a black dragon when she accidentally swallowed a magic egg which she found near the riverside.
Is a key frame of the main character Zoho want suicide, but hanging rope turn into a dragon by magic of rabbit god.
This piece is the character concept of Zoho when she was kid and met the rabbit god Tuerye.
