07/02/2017 – 3D Printing

Late last year (2016) I dove into the world of 3D printing. It turned out to be a very hands on and technical job but super fun and addictive. The fact that you can print out anything you want opens up a lot of doors and  really gets your mind thinking. I started off with […]

07/02/2017 – Dodge Academy Update #1

Over the past year I have been working on a game with a small team of friends. Now known as FrigidFire! The experience has been very interesting and a big learning curve. It is our first proper game that we have spent more than a few days on, which has made it quite the challenge […]

06/02/2017 – Speed Sculpting #2

Lately in my spare time I have been getting back into doing some speed sculpts. As I’ve briefly said in a previous post, they really do test what you can achieve in a small period of time. Doing these again recently, I have noticed the improvement in my general ZBrush knowledge and sculpting speed. It’s […]

06/02/2017 – Oil Painting

  Last year I attempted to complete a few oil paintings. The overall experience was very rewarding as its right in front of you and not on a screen. After doing these and learning, I will definitely do more in the future and can’t wait! Autumns Morning Autumns Morning was my very first painting. The idea […]

14/01/2016 – Sketches #1

Here are some Sketches from late 2015 – early 2016 I have been learning to use Copic Markers and Brush Pens. I really like the style and the break from the computer when I draw. It is something that every artist should be able to do and be good at with some practice.

05/09/2015 – Speed Sculpting

I felt that I could fix up Mr, SpiderDilloMoth and texture him nicely but it ended up wayyy too hard so here is what I ended up with there. I do have to say..I am just happy that I can now complete this process, at the start of the course I could not do this […]

05/09/2015 – Female Character UE4 Setup

During the holidays after that class had finished few friends and I decided we wanted to create a multiplayer game (that didn’t go anywhere) However I did create this customizable character for that game over the holidays which was still an achievement. Overall it was a good experience, even though the team lost motivation. I […]
