The latest in my ever increasing assortment of body parts.


Thanks to Brendan for supplying some extra render power.

Krita Test

The next 3D render has left me with a lot of down time, so I thought I'd finish off a sketch that emerged while I was evaluating Krita mid-last year.

Eyeball

Unfortunately YouTube has not done this one much justice... enable HD to improve the picture quality a bit.

Face WIP

After a succession of interruptions I've finally managed to make some more progress on this guy.  As before, it's just a proof of concept, so there's a myriad of temporary, incomplete or just plain missing bits.  I saw fit to add some music this time, for whatever reason.

Website Mk IV

Now Powered by Blogger, or so the footer says.  It's not quite as pretty as it was when it was powered by Wordpress, but it is faster, free-er, Google-er, and surrounded by a virtually impenetrable hacker-deflecting fortress (this should not be taken as an invitation to try hacking it, by the way).

Hackers Be Gone!

Disinfecting and rebuilding my site over and over is getting a mite wearisome, so I'm terminating my Wordpress site and migrating everything over to Blogger.  In fact it's already there - all that's left to do is to transfer the domain, which will be happening shortly.  When it does, any feeds will most likely cease and need to be re-subscribed to.

New Button

Behold the Music Button.  It leads to the Music Page, which I originally intended to add 6 years ago when I started the site.  So far it is populated with 3 tracks:  the results of a recent sound design experiment, a relaxation track I did in 2004, and the Christmas carol I already posted ages ago (which now has a pretty picture to go with it).

Music

There will be more.

Hand WIP

More from my personal person project. This was just supposed to be a rigging test, but then I got carried away and started texturing and things. So now it sits in that uncomfortable place somewhere in-between rough test and final product.

Bottersnikes and Gumbles

A teaser has been released for an animated TV show being developed at Mighty Nice in Sydney, for which I contributed revamped character designs based on the original book illustrations, as well as some matte paintings.

The Passenger DVD Now $14.95

That's the same amount of plastic for $5 less!  Postage is still $6 though ($3 within Australia), can't do much about that.  Purchase instructions are here.

Multipurpose Person Version 1.0

Here's something I just whipped up over the past decade.  Well, I started it about a decade ago, but have been giving it some more attention recently.

I intend to continue refining and perfecting it indefinitely, for use as the basis for whatever humanoid characters I may need in the future.  In this instance I've given him an Anatomy Tools inspired makeover as a detail test for my newly revised 3D workflow.  It's a bit rough in places - that's what tests are all about.

Sculpted and textured in Sculptris, modelled and rendered in Lightwave, with some displacement baking help from Blender.  Some more details on the Sculptris forum.


If playback is choppy, try here.

Blacktop Kings Concept Art

There's not much to show for the years between 1999 and 2006 - other than a certain short film project - so let's skip forward to '06 when I re-entered the game biz for a few months in order to fund completion of said film.

These are some of the concept paintings I did for an Iron Monkey Studios game during that time. Not sure if/when it will be released..
