A Whole World of Pain Part 2 : Internal

I'm still really not happy with this model in places and the Maya file is coming in at 33MB despite having a lot of instanced over duplicated geometry, none of which is more complicated then a series of cubes and cylynders so more work will be required but it does feel good to have it back. Now if anyone needs me I'll be passed out asleep in front of Nuke on the studio sofa...

Synesthesia Backgrounds V1.0

First attempt to block colour up two backgrounds for Brian's masters project synesthesia. Some subtle line and colour variations they are far from crazy enough yet but its feeling good to back working with a crazy 2D project! For more information please look at his blog here, its fun : http://yodasportrait.blogspot.com/

Moleskin Moments 02

Second drawing from the moleskin coloured up.
Far from perfect, need to start drawing heads at the right size and faces better but it was quick and fun and I sadly have maya models to fix right now...
Comedown Rabbits...

250 Words Extract

As part of our reflective model we have had to submit a 250 extract before we write and then present at our mini conference. Below is my first draft.

CAD Drawings for Fraser

Another set and probably the last I can do as after this weekend time is limited. It's been fun though!

A Whole World Of Pain Part 1 : External

So my computer died, or at least my back-up hard-drive got corrupted causing my computer to die and I lost nothing except for every single Maya model completed for Waverley project so far.  However I discovered there is enough caffeine to keep me awake and fueled for days and so I may not have slept since Saturday I have my models back and UV mapped ready for texturing, I will definitely have to modify the internal at some point but I'm glad to have it back in parts. So here we have new screenshots and all of the UV maps for the external shot. Internal will be posted separately...

And Now for Something Completely Different

Happy V-day people. I got my first moleskin for christmas which is scary and exciting and I have a project for it. My aim is to sketch things from memory (with some imagination thrown in) of nice moments which have happened but which I have no photos from. On top of which my aim is to focus on figures and not, repeat not on buildings/ environments and to keep it fast and loose. I'm hoping to try to do one every Friday night (or weekend) so here's the first one. Taken from the sketchbook and then doctored with colour in photoshop this is something kinda cute for a certain someone lovely. Christmas jumpers in Madrid...

Return to Belly of The Beast

Finally got the internal hall of the station re-modelled after the last one proved to be corrupt beyond repair. On the up I think its a better model, however the downside is that UV mapping this version will take far longer...
