slighty stylized castle - sims / disney look

Sort of a medieval banquet hall.
The textures are not photos, i used a stone photo for the base colour and ran a filter on it, then painted everything else over the top.
Others like the wood and floor were start from scratch.
i Wanted to get a real-ish but still painted or softer feel
The images are a combination of the render and an ambient occlusion render.

Sims2 Pets

So like almost everyone else on the planet i did a little contract work for EA a few years ago which was good fun.:-)
Heres some of the objects i worked on.....mostly was creating new assests but also had to modify or downrez max assests from the PC team.
I remember it was during the world cup and they put up the flags of all the countries around the theater and they put up the union jack which it great britains flag. not Englands flag, i jokingly mentioned this in an email and came in the next day to see they were changing it...made me laugh.
ANYWAY....i enjoyed it there

Davros and the Daleks

Anyone familiar with Doctor Who should recognize Davros, creator of the Daleks.....and if your not familiar with it then hopefully its a cool looking character.

During the 1960s many of the original doctor who stories were partially or totally destroyed and there are many groups that exist making reconstrucions.....Here is some of my dalek work from a story called Evil of the daleks

quick little test vid i made a while back for a warhammer 40k / space marines pitch

Beneath a Steel Sky

i LOVED the golden age of the point and click adventure games and one of my favorites was Beneath a Steel sky. I started to recreate the first part in 3d.....just to see what it would be like....for fun really but i was also going to suggest the idea to someone because i would love to see some of the old greats like this one , the Dig etc......3d remakes for xbox arcade or something
quick video just to get the spacial position of everything....while the 2d game is great it is still someone hand drawn image and making a 3d version is not as easy as it sounds

fun NON GEARS unreal project

this was a complete break away from the standard unreal hi tech shiny style unreal of course it was canceled

Egypt stuff

im thinking of throwing together a little scene in the unreal engine....keep in practice

modular fun fun fun

These are some grabs from the project i just is a facebook MMO, all build in 3d but rendered out into a 2d flash engine
basically i had to build sets that made sence and could be easily assembled by someone else to make levels as they see fit
The bus was the most fun and guess what....not even being used
