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).


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..

My Art History: KKnD Krossfire

Now that that mess is out of the way (after yet another laborious cleanup... the infection wasn't contained after all), it's time to delve back into the archives and continue where we left off.

Here we have some promo stills from the opening cinematic of KKnD 2, on which I served as Lead Cinematic Artist while at Beam Software in 1997.  The whole intro can be found on YouTube without much effort.

Website Mk III

Much as I liked my old site, hackers with pharmaceuticals to sell seemed to like it as well, so it had to go. Since I was rebuilding everything (for the third time I might add) I thought I might as well take advantage of the situation and do some redecorating - the upshot of which is that the site works a little bit better now as well. Take that pharma-hackers!

Now I just have to deal with this other 'entity' that's trying to claim ownership of The Passenger and have it blocked from YouTube...
