SD Environment

The famous Splash Damage art test.  Learnt a lot creating this piece from modelling the assets to new texturing techniques. A raw hardware real time screen shot image from 3ds max using dirextX shaders without any lighting or shadows. Last image are textures for the AA12 shotgun changed for the scene.

Pretty much finished modelling.

Lamborghini Reventon rims WIP

Render using Arch and Design materials to differentiate each component of the rim. The reason for the fan like rim is for when the wheels rotate the rims act like a fan to cool the breaks.

Lamborghini Reventon WIP

My first car... (I wish) ...modelled. Not the easiest car to model but a large learning curve definitely.

Sci-fi Environment

Modelling props is a good stepping stone and wanted to create something with everything collaborated together so thought about environments. This environment is a tutorial by Richard Tilbury. When I first saw the render I was blown away! I will be applying my own work techniques.

AA12 sneak peak

Low poly unwrapped and textured with basic ambient occ, diffuse, specular and normal map. The AA12 writing I manually created a normal map in photoshop. Haven't decided on the diffuse for the gun but I'm looking for 2 types of textures so maybe this digital blue camo (will amend of course) and a black metal diffuse map.

Textured in Photoshop

AA12 shotgun High Poly

High poly AA12 shotgun seen in the films 'Predators' and 'The Expendables'. Next is to bake the details, create a few normal maps and a diffuse map in photoshop and create a low poly to put it all on.

Modelled in 3DS Max.

High and Low

A render to show my progress, wasn't going to post anything until its finished but this is my WIP portfoilio :D Using techniques like floating geometry and baking my normals and AO together is a very nice workflow. Diffuse so far are more basic just to get some color onto the model. Hopefully when finished the model will end up in Marmoset's engine Tollbag that I have recently grabbed my hands on (very nice realtime render preview engine).

Digging up older work :D This was a hallway for NASA headquarters. A series of holding cells I did for Lee in collaboration about 1/2 years ago.

Just a quick peak of what I'm up to at the moment. M95 sniper rifle modelled in 3ds max, nearly finished the texturing, scope looks very nice textured but im off to egypt tonight and I've found some new techniques to baking and making textures in photoshop so wont be too long.

Daily sketch

Beauty or Naughty

Getting back into 2d and concept work, really enjoying it. Recently looking through youtube I found some amasing art on the female body with the intention to help beginners learn the basic form. Whilst reading through the comments I couldn't believe the arguements between this type of nude life drawing to be labled as porn or art hence my title Beauty or Naughty you decide lol.

NEW website

Finally completed my new website! Happy days! -

End of year (nearly) short summary

So il keep it short (short enough anyway), the past year has been an experience and a half having being an artist for a year and finishing uni this year I have successfully achieved what I wanted to achieve and further. Originally my path was towards video games but after collaborating in a T-rex short feature (link on side --->), I created a hyper real character giving me a learning curve to becoming open to anything from video games to feature films. I have studied with a bunch of wicked students/friends and has been an eventfull 3 years. Times have been tough but you fall down and you just pick yourself up stronger with motivation and initiative.

The year has been a very innovative and creative year for me and I'm more than happy and looking foward to what lies ahead for me in the future.
