Product Design - Kettle

In order to illustrate to prospective clients some of my 'skillz' I decided to go back to my product design roots and design a kettle. Not very glam I know, but it shows that I can do high res meshes as well as decent rendering, so here we have it.
I'll be getting down and dirty with mental ray in the forthcoming weeks so the renders should get better, plus this was done in 'Max' which I have limited knowledge of the renderer, lights and materials etc...thats my excuse and Im sticking to it.
By the way I feel I should tell you that im doing this as an agent told me my concept stuff was strong enough but my 3d needed different types of stuff to make me more 'marketable' to an array of industries.
Expect some loose pretty painting as a direct back lash to this :)

'The Summoning'

This is a 'speed' paint I did for a dragon jam on - It wasn't that speedy but I'm pretty happy with it .... for now.

Vikings are the new black FACT!

Well there seems to be a lot of ‘Viking’ presence on various art sites nowadays so I thought I'd jump on a bandwagon seeing as it was passing. I thought I'd try and push a 'cartoon network' style concentrating on bold shapes and details that don’t break the shapes' boundary.

Ta - Daaaa....

Okay I know I've been quiet of late, but I've been freelancing doing some outsource work AND some teaching which is very cool but very scary as you just never know what is going to happen.

So when I've not been trekking into the London I've redesigned my webiste. I've tried to keep it clean and simple and easy to add/replace new works.

Most of the new stuff is the content from this blog but there are some examples of my 3d game work and other miscellaneous stuff.
