Want it, but won't do it.

I might try making something in 3d as well. I really think I could do with trying it atleast. Spent some time make this one a little tighter.

Collateral Destruction

Just playing around with some new stuff. Also portfolio work.
Made up from photos of guns chopped up, move about and reworked. About 25% photos I'd say. Mainly just helped me get the main gun/barrel area looking good. Then I just got bits of anything  I liked, like grips/helicopter parts and stuff to build the rest. I might do another and take it all the way to a nice full size painting.

Ding ding.

Finished painting this bad boy.
His design is still bugging me a bit. But I enjoyed painting this and I think it looks pretty good.

Test this!

Just some bits and pieces I'm working on. Steampunky stuff. Not sure about the second one, its supposed to be steampunky/C3P0 - but it kind of just seems horribly generic. I have a bad habit of doing that, I think very 'functionally' and basic/simple; which seems to lead to my designs being very boring. Need to work on that.

Pew Pew Pew

So Here's where I took it.
In the 3d model the lighting looked good, but I probably could of done with some more stuff getting hit by the light - it makes it hard to find a right background since everything is very mid tone without much light or dark areas. Also a friend asked me to post the 3d mockup for it so here it is. As you can see its pretty darn simple. just enough perspective in the main shapes to let me figure out the rest myself. I really want to try and get into modelling something more complicated now.

Wooooooooooo, spend a chunk of my saturday today working on this. Spent a shit load of time modelling in 3dsmax to realise; I suck, and its hard. Only to spit something out more detailed in sketchup in like 1/10th of the time. Rendering in 3ds max is super sexy though.
Hopefully I'll find some time to finish this up. I don't see myself rendering this up completely, because it would be insane. Maybe? But I might leave it as a line/technical kind of drawing. Its such an in efficient process to draw it all completely detailed and then paint over it all.

Like Metallica's 'One' video.

Man, I am really in the mood to be doing some of my own stuff. I've been absolutely sci-fi design crazy the last few months, but don't find time to actually do anything with it. I won't be complaining though, because I think I would much rather have work to be doing and making a living. This is all that's come out of Underverse at the moment, but things are moving forward - going to have playable builds soon and that means there is work that can be shown (maybe :S). Just started some more steampunk commissions too, so expect some of that very soon. I've been pretty busy actually, its just all stuff I'm not allowed to show. I'll give you a hint, Ive sold out; Hollywood and Advertising. :D

"Pew pew pew" - Tinker

Just doing some more doodling. Really not doing enough personal stuff at the moment. Need to get back into it. Really badly :/
