Road bump…

Posted by on Aug 10, 2013 in News | No Comments

I haven’t managed to update this in a few days and I have not managed to get as much work done as I’d like. I have managed to UV map and start texturing a couple of things and continue to add to the street. I believe it is almost finished, just needs a bit more […]

Zbrush…

Posted by on Aug 1, 2013 in News | No Comments

I have started finally trying to get to grips with Zbrush. It has been a long time coming, I have put it off before on account of not being able to understand it’s (different) UI. I was learning Max and Maya at the time and Zbrush was too different for me. I knew Zbrush’s capabilities, […]

Weekend work

Posted by on Jul 29, 2013 in New Project, Works In Progress | No Comments

We had a guest over the weekend, so I spent most of the time cooking, chatting and socialising – something which was definitely needed as work tends to be all I do apart from look after my grandmother. I did manage to pop this out quickly. It was only supposed to be a quick thing […]

Not much progress

Posted by on Jul 22, 2013 in Leisure, News, Photography | No Comments

I haven’t made a huge amount of headway in the last couple of days – it was so hot over the weekend I could barely stand being in the same room as the PC as it was putting out so much heat, even with the window and door open. As a result, I didn’t really […]

Land Rover has been re-panelled!

Land Rover has been re-panelled!

After importing the model into Maya, I looked over the model again and decided that all of the panels needed splitting up into individual pieces, as when I first modelled it, I had just box modelled it and left it entirely in one piece!! Obviously, that was far from ideal, so over the weekend I […]

Remember to delete history!!

Posted by on Jul 16, 2013 in News | No Comments

I woke up today to get back to work on the Land Rover, fired up Maya and tried to load my project file. It said loaded but was stuck at ‘reading’ on 99%. I eventually managed to open it, but the geometry was all over the shop. Turns out I hadn’t deleted the history as […]

Moving along – seat modelling and stitching

Posted by on Jul 12, 2013 in News, Works In Progress | No Comments

Today I find myself working on seats for the Land Rover. I have modelled the front two and the rear seat is essentially the same as the front passenger seat, with some verts moved around for change’s sake. I have modelled the seams for the seats, 5 section bevel close together, extrude then scale in […]

Old projects, restarted – environmental and vehicular

Right, I was planning on doing this on Sunday night but it didn’t happen, and yesterday’s hot weather made my room a furnace to work in – so much so that a decent fan needs to be purchased!! Firstly, the submarine pen images – I will need to work on the lighting, it is not […]

Re-rendering, no rigging!!

Posted by on Jun 24, 2013 in News | No Comments

I am just trying to find some old models that I never got around to finishing texturing today. I have been doing some GI renders and then taking them to Keyshot to quickly texture and render. Final work is quick change of levels in Photoshop, although I went a bit crazy with the above image […]

Update!

Posted by on Jun 23, 2013 in News | No Comments

So, I have finally decided to upgrade my website, both the style and finally start sorting out and updating the actual images in the Portfolio section.  This has been spurred on by a post I saw over at Polycount the other day. You can find the post here. I ended up forking out a bit of […]
