Gladiator Robot Design

I recently finished up a model of a robot design for my Industrial Design class in school.  All modeled in Zbrush.  I may end up adding a few parts here and there.. some for joints I think need work, and I'd also like to add a weapon and shield... I also have to replace all of the Zspheres with actual geometry for the fingers and tubes.

Monster Mech WIP

here's a piece I've been working out for a little now.. finished correcting my drawing today and rendered in some volume.  I will eventually take him to full color, draw character orthograpics, and then take him to 3D..

New Work in Progress

Here are some rendered shots of my Shishi Lion Guardian sculpt.  A work in progress, but the game res asset will be done soon.

I started the Zbrush sculpt to my weapon concept I painted a week or so ago.  I need to tweak some things yet, but I will have it game res by next week.

The Unnatural Selector

Finished up my steampunk rifle today.. totally stoked about this.  Real-time capture in 3DS Max 2012 with Xoliul Shader 2.0 .. Thanks again to the devs of this wicked awesome shader.  Rifle observed from a production concept from Weta Workshop.

Edit: I made some additional tweaks to my texture in the spec map, and these new shots were taken in Marmoset. Love Marmoset.  It's actually quite fun to mess with lighting, mood and a little depth of field in real-time.

New works

The previous post was work done from about 3 months ago.  Here is some new work That I have done within the last 3 weeks.  Pretty darn proud of this rifle.  It was observed from a concept from Weta Workshop based on a compiled work of Steampunk designs.

Brand New

Welcome all to my brand new blog.  I am here to post all my recent 2D and 3D art as well as post any thoughts I have on current games, game tech, or artists that I pull my inspirations from.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  Cheers..


Here are some recent figures and paintings I've done.  I drew this sketch for fun a little while ago.. lots of dirty marks.. worked this out by finding my values and silhouette.

 Some orthographic drawings I made of one of my favorite game characters of all time-- Kain, of the Legacy of Kain series-- the game is old, but I'd love for them to bring it back w/ today's tech.. One can only dream... ;P

A weapon design based on God of War III

More Figures and Studies

More than recently, I had the opportunity to work on a project for Valve.  Andrea Wicklund lead the group and gave us a project to design new zombies for Left 4 Dead 2, or robot designs for Portal 2.  I chose Portal 2 and designed several variations of robot classes that I thought would fit in the universe.
