N7 High Pressure Suit

I decided to take part in the bioware challenge over at cghub. I chose to create a character for mass effect... Here is the concept that I created, the back and the wings still need to be worked out and refined some more but I will sort that when I am creating the model... Check out the thread over at CGhub

Some lunch crunching!

Here are some pieces that I have been working on during lunch breaks. In fact a few of us join in on this and pick a theme every week and spend our lunch breaks during the week coming up with a piece. Check out the blog

Feather Cloak

Managed to do a little more with this dude, started on the feather cloak and just trying to decide on colours for the cloth and leather, I must have changed it a hundred times already! It still needs a lot of work but I'll get there bit by bit...

Torso Anatomy sculpt

Did a bit more with this... Dynameshed from a sphere and sculpted without any symmetry on. It was a really good excercise to work like that.

Beast sketch

Some lunchtime messing around... I tried to go with a type of primate influenced creature design. It was just a bit of fun really :-)

I have started to texture this dude now... my eyes a bleeding so I'm going to have to call it a night. I still have a lot to do, I am in the process of blocking in the colour and adding the skin tones. I have started to paint details here and there but need to take it a lot further! I can't wait to get this one finished!

Speed Sculpts

Here are a couple of speed sculpts that I have done recently, the male torso is very much work in progress. I think I will take that one further than just a speed sculpt and do a nice render and refine it a lot more... The above was just a mess around... both were done with dynamesh from a sphere...

Baking Normals

I have managed to retop and unwrap most of the parts of this character so I started baking the normals tonight... I still have a few more things to bake but I'm calling it a night for now. I just can't wait to start texturing this little freak :-)

Goblin creature

Here is something else that I have been working on, well something that I was working on and have come back to. I am working on the low poly now and going to unwrap it so I can bake the normal and AO maps... The concept was done by a talented guy I use to work with... Check out the link...


More painting during lunch times... just messing around really, I did this a few weeks back but never really finished it...

Here is another work in progress shot of this orc character. The armour is very lord of the rings, all done with dynamesh. I still have to add more details, the sword is just like a blob at the moment I will have to go in and sort that out. I just can't wait to get this high poly finish so I can get on with the texturing!


Here is another concept sketch that I have been working on during my lunch breaks. It isn't finished yet, I need to tighten it up! Don't know when I am going to find the time to do it though as I am working on 3 characters at the same time! I'll just have to squeeze it in somewhere...

Something else that I have been working on during lunch... I think i will take this all the way and create a finished character. Still a lot of refining to do on the body though.

Here is a couple of other lunchtime sketches that I have been doing. I want to finish them off at some point, hopefully soon :-)

Here is another quick sketch that I did over lunch at work, not sure what I was trying to do here, just started sketching and just went with whatever was coming to my head at the time?!

Ok I better get this started and post some work... I think I'll start with some stuff that I have been doing during my lunch times at work... here is a 2d character concept that I was messing around with...

I have decided to set up a blog so that I can log all my progress of whatever work I am doing throughout my life! I guess I will be posting up anything that I happen to be working on in my spare time... this will be from 2d,3d and probably some photography... Thanks for passing by and keep checking back!
