Orky Rigging

I never did post the low poly version of my runescape character... I was also learning how to rig in maya so I made a basic rig. Its been a while!(take no notice of my rubbish animation lol)

AMX/PUMA Assault Rifle

Exploring the toolset I am collecting. Used a few new canvas brushes and selected a hexagonal brush to indicate some sort of holographic camouflage. Not happy with the simplistic shape but I wasn't focusing too much on the silhouette. Considering it was just playing around I am happy with the results. Hell knows how I got on without textured brushes before!

Zbrush Sculpt

I haven't posted here for a while! I hardly get time to finish anything but here is something that I started a couple of weeks ago. Its a sculpt of my grandad and I started from a sphere then retopologized the mesh. All in all I have spent around 9-10 hours on it so far.

ZBrush sculpt anatomy practice – Hammerman

Initially attempted to sculpt this without any reference, using knowledge already obtained through practice. Once I thought I had taken it far enough, I got the anatomy books out and started fixing the mistakes. I’ve found this is a good way to try to maintain and apply knowledge relating to anatomy.

Squad Support Mech


This just flowed from start to finish. I think this is one of the first pieces of work I have ever done where it didn't feel like I'd made any fundamental mistakes early on or anything that troubled me throughout. Really pleased with it!

Squad Support Mech-12 Mark III "Guardian".

It's a lightly armoured Mech designed to operate amongst infantry. It's standard armament features two double-barrelled plasma cannons on each arm. These are modular and the load out can be changed depending on what's required for a particular mission. It also supports smoke , chaff, flare and drone launching capabilities. It can be piloted or set to autopilot for guard and patrol purposes.
