Another print for my collection…
My¬†Professor Clever Alien model, printed on the PROJET 660 PRO.

Initial speculative piece for ASDA 3DME product.¬† The idea was for kids to be posed with the turtles.¬† This particular version of Leonardo is based on the 2014 movie, but ultimately Nickelodeon decided on the 2012 TV series version.
There was something about Tim Burton’s Batman that was just so aesthetically spot on…
Gotham City, with all its weird Germanic architecture and constantly miserable, dark weather.¬† The Batmobile is one of the best looking vehicles ever made. And possibly the most iconic elements of the film, were of course the antagonist and protagonist… Jack Nicholson’s Joker and Micheal Keaton’s Batman.
Micheal Keaton looking damn awesome
Reference Photos, Sculpt Progress and Zbrush Render
This piece is still a work in progress. The cowl needs cleaning up, the face needs more detail and obviously everything needs retopping and a UV layout. Furthermore I plan to have the him done in his entirety, including full body, as soon as possible.
My first publication in the The Computer Games Journal. The paper is: Correctly and accurately combining normal maps in 3D engines, which of course we all do routinely.
Out of all the illustrations and descriptions of the typical ‘grey’ alien archetype, this particular image has fascinated me for years.¬† There’s something about the head shape and features that looks so creepy.¬† Its¬†familiar and humanoid in some ways, yet very strange and alien in others.

One of the coolest bad guys ever! Lord Zedd from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers…
Not much to go off other than low quality vidcaps.
As it’s my birthday I’ve taken a break from work and instead did some 3D for fun in the form of a Magog from Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda…
Pretty pleased with him for the most part, I think the fur could be better.¬† The eyes are modified versions of the ones I’m working on for my dissertation, don’t look too bad either.
MSc Practical Assignment
The Mechanical Modelling module required us to visit a museum and take reference photos of a vehicle . Using the gathered¬†reference we had to design and model both a vehicle form that could transform into an alternative robot mode, in the ‘Transformers’ style with the final model being able to transform within Unreal Tournament 3.
I selected a WW1 British Tank or ‘Landship’, and had a trip to The Museum of Lincolnshire Life in Lincoln to take reference shots of one of the few surviving today.
The ‘robot’ form is based in the¬†Decepticon characters in the original animated series of Transformers, specifically the character ‘Megatron’.¬† Additionally he is embellished with elements from WW1 artifacts and a ludicrous Kitchener-esc Mustache.
