3D Modeling - Hobbithole

This was the second successful model I did. I tried to do something a little more organic and with different textures. Not sure how successful my maps were here, but c'est la vie. I also learned a lot about Scatter and other tools that I would proceed to not actually use for the final model. C'est la other vie.

Not really intended to be 'THE' Baggins' house from the Lord of the Rings films - just something from my head / what I remembered.

3D Modeling - Stilthouse

I haven't had a chance to revisit 3DS Max since the Game Art class I took last summer. I wasn't really that pleased with that model, and I wanted to learn more about concepting from a modeler's point of view - or anyone who would have to be looking at my drawings for information, for that matter. You may remember the environment sketches I did in August; I've been picking the best of those and producing them as 3D models.

The stilthouse was the first model I was actually a little satisfied with! It was based on this sketch:

You may remember it!


Kind of Myst-y? Maybe?

The untextured images are up at my website - - as well as the most recent model I did (under Concept Art), which I'll be posting up later this week.

Things have been very busy. Been sending out applications and resumes like mad. But I wanted to make sure I got a chance to put these up, it's already been a while but my blog's been looking dusty lately!

Spectacle Obscura Posters

Black WidowBig Top BazaarDaphneCirkThe Fall

Cleaned up jpegs of each of the five posters I designed for "Spectacle Obscura." The last one is a bit of an easter egg for those in the company - we all love Tarsem Singh's work.

You can see all of these at my website which has also gotten a little cleaned up. Check it out!
