SKY WHALE

Yet another ZBRUSH model. yup, and yet again this is inspired by creatures that might live in a free fall world ( see Larry Niven's Integral Trees). Had fun with this one. Simple yet- for my limited knowledge on the program- challenging.

ANOTHER BEAST

This is of my own creation. Just messing around on Zbrush- THIS is my first ever Zbrush model. I had some excellent help and advice from some really REALLY amazing Zbrush pros. My many thanks.

Now I'm off to sculpt some more.

Z BRUSH BABY!

I LOVE IT!

 Just picked it up and playing around with this powerful POWERFUL tool. I know its been around forever and is the industry standard for modeling- or one of the top ones... I have known about it for some time but I have recently dug my hands in and sculpted. I always wanted to learn how to sculpt and this program lets me manipulate those pesky polygons so awesomely. Now there will be a whole world of stuff for me to build. Here is one of my first projects I did. Inspired by a creature in Larry Nivan's "Intregal Trees" I sculpted this. ( see below)

Now on to more Zbrush adventures.

DID SOMEONE SAY...AIRSHIP?!!!

I thought so. 

I did this Airship inspired from a bunch of cool airship paintings by a German artist named- Vadim Voitekhovitch 

Steam punk is very cool indeed.

KUTOMSPAR-TAKE 2

A while ago I posted a version of a ship I designed inspired from a sic fi roleplaying campaign- the KUTOMSPAR. well I've had another go at it. And will probably even do things to this design or come up with a whole new design. I just love the idea of this ship- basically an armored and armed cargo carrier. Like a semi truck rig built like a tank.

ART RAGE- SKETCH

Been playing around with art rage on my IPAD. Its a fun tool. I created a little sketch using the palate knife then brought the image into Photoshop to mess with it some more. was wanting Fellowship of the Ring when I did this. So there might have been some subtle influences on the sketch. Here it is.

CORBEN JAXX BOOK COVER

Been playing around writing a sic fi novel. yeah, I know. With all that crazy free time I have? I've been writing it over the last couple of years off and on. Along with a fantasy novel called SHAZAR.  Yeah, I know, crazy. But sometimes I get an itch and I gotta write or draw or design spaceships or even come up with book covers.

Heres CORBEN JAXX.
