Mobile Pets is an online virtual pet simulation game developed and hosted by Cellufun. Players can adopt numerous types of pets either by purchasing them with virtual currency or by winning them in other Cellufun games. Like most virtual pet games, players must constantly take good care of their pets by feeding them, playing with them and training them to perform skills with other players' pets. 

Pets are presented to the players in the form of animated gifs featuring pre-rendered 3D animations. As lead artist on this title I render all pet art in Autodesk Maya, including texturing, rigging, animating, lighting and rendering. I have rigged and animated over 50 different animal types for Mobile Pets, including dogs, cats, rabbits, fish, birds, horses, bears, snakes, dinosaurs, dragons, and much more. I also create numerous textures for each model, offering players their favorite animals in a variety of colors and skins.

Mobile Pets is one of Cellufun's most popular and longest-running active games, with new pets made and introduced to players every month, generating over $1.2 million in revenue over its lifetime. Below are select samples of pet animations I have made for the game.
