I made these models and rendered them in 3D Studio Max

I made these images in Terragen.

2-D

Sesame Street Fighter

I drew this by hand, then scanned it into the comptuter. I replaced some of the handwritten text in Photoshop.

TaLiBaN - Gotta kill 'em all!

I made this parody of the Pokémon logo shortly after Sept. 11, 2001 using Photoshop.

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)

The Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format is a relatively new form of displaying vector graphics on the internet, similar to Macromedia's Flash format. But unlike Flash, you do not need any propriatary software to create SVG. SVG can be created using nothing more than a simple text editor, such as Notepad. For more information on SVG, see the W3C website.

Vector graphics (e.g., SVG) have various advantages over Raster graphics (e.g., JPG, GIF, PNG).

The most popular way of viewing SVG is with Adobe's SVG Viewer Plugin. I have tested my SVG files below and they work with both Adobe's SVG Viewer as well as Batik.

I created the SVG images of the 北斗の拳 logo and the Autobot and Decepticon symbols using OpenOffice. The SVG files exported by OpenOffice contained a lot of redundancy. Every shape was defined twice: once with a black outline and no fill, and again with a fill and no outline. By eliminating the dupicate shapes (using VIM, a text editor), I reduced the file sizes greatly.

Characters

These are images of Transformers characters that I made based on model sheets from the TV series. I originally did these in Macromedia Flash (before I'd even heard of SVG). From Flash I exported these images to Metafile (wmf) format, then imported the Metafiles into OpenOffice. From there I exported SVG images. I then used a text editor to get rid of some redundant code in some of the SVG files, making the size of the files smaller.
