Tentacle Rigging Tool
This tool is created to quickly implement trunk or tentacle rigs based of a concept found in Jeff Brodsky's Trunk rig.
The usability of this tool really shines when you need to create a highly dynamic tentacle-like rig for an asset, and can be used both on its own or to complement a rig (for instance as a tail).
Programs: Maya 2015 / QtDesigner4
Scripts: Python with: Pymel for Maya, PySide
This rig was build for a third year cinematic project at International Game Architecture and Design. The story is about a dinosaur who wants to fly to the moon, but who isn't really capable. For more info please visit the projects website.

The Phynna rig was build for Gamelab, our weekly school simulation of a real work environment. Our team made a complete 3 levels game in just 14 days. This project is was continued for the 2014 Imagine Cup. To see the trailer for the first iteration please visit this link.
Programs: Maya 2014/ Unity

Concept by Derk Over
A trailer for this project can be found on the Other page.
Made as a project for our introductory class to scripting and constraining. This was a 1st year class where we had to write scripts, rig a robotic leg and prepare this tank for animation.

Side FX Houdini
During my graduation I worked together with Pim Hendriks to create a short cinematic. During our final production we spend our energy on a single shot. For this I created the growing plants, destruction and smoke effects.
Procedural Castle Generator
During my specialisation phase I decided to build a procedural castle generator. This tool was capable of generating a game-engine ready mesh with a single input curve as the base of the castle. If wanted seperate towers could be added, or a castle wall.
As the third image shows the inner walls of the castle adapt to the towers the user places in the main building. This tower will automaticly orientate the entrance to suit the building.
The towers are customisable with both a round or a square base shape, multiple floors, random or structured arrow slits, and multiple styles of battlements.
The gatehouse needs a single tower as an input. This tower would be rotated and mirrored correctly to the inside of the castle. By removing its bounding box from the wall the gate is perfectly incorporated. The height and thickness depends on the input tower, and the width can be adjusted in the "gatehouse" asset.
