Blob

New character study for a private project


Mini Sculpture - Norman


It's been such a long time since I've done any sculpting, So I spent last weeks rainy Sunday building this little fella.

I love working with Super Sculpey, the clay is so fine and just made for adding details.
I started with modeling the head on a length of armature wire to keep everything in place - it's what allows the little Norman soldier to stand up on one foot. By the way I say 'Norman' I'm not 100% on his historic accuracy!

I part fired the head just to keep the details, before working on the body.


Arms Shield and sword added, really to be popped in the oven. Below - painted using Acrylics - they do some great Metallic paint now.


If anyone has any questions about how I made him, drop me a mail, I'm no expert mind, just winging it! :)

Here's the original inspiration for the Asics Onitsuka Tiger Bot - the Adidas Forum creation is, like the Asics Robot, entirely created from photos of the sneakers -

Robotique - test render frames

I'm working on a short motion ident based on some of the 'robotique' sketches. I've built and rendered in 3ds Max added screen effects in After Effects. Really this is just a test with Max's ink and paint shader. All in the name of  fun!

ATV Superstars (Pure) Early frontend Concepts

I was Lead Artist on Pure (Xbox/PS3), I found these early moodboards for the front-end I created. The only thing that remained from these early concepts was the central spline which acted as a transitionary mechanic, connecting all the frontend screens.

Split/Second Car Unlock Moodboards



These are old car unlock moodboards for Split/Second. I worked on the Project as the Principal Artist on the presentation Team.

Boss Monster

End of Level Boss, knocked up in Max.

ZombBot

This was a Custom Job I created for the Vacant Lmac World tour a couple of Years back. Amazing what you can do with a couple of loo rolls and a roll of sticky backed plastic!

2K5


This was an image created a few years ago. A Collabaration with Art Director Jake at Shooting the Breeze and Strawberry Frog. 
Inspired by the Japanese cult movie Tetsuo: The Ironman in which the film's hero grafts computer parts onto his body in order to get 'closer to the machine', the Onitsukabot was born, made entirely from shoe parts. This ad went on to become the design template for all future Onitsuka Tiger media communications. 
It was painstaking work and I dreamt about sneakers for a long time after creating the image :)

Speed

I recently had to opportunity to brush up on speed painting with  John Wallin Liberto, great guy and very talented! It's a very different way of working for me but I gotta say I loved every minute of it!



Here are some of my Efforts, 10 to 60 min sketches, very rough and ready!
