Holy blog post, Batman!

Salutations. I've realised I don't art enough any more... so here's some drawings from the life drawing sessions at The Flying Duck, which are on every Tuesday (complete with beer and classic ear-food). I also gave 'em a quick lick of colour in Potatoshop.

I'll be doing my best to update this more. I'm in a creative funk of sorts, and we all know the only way to get out of it is to churn out some work! Stay tuned.

Go-Go-Gadget Website!

As most of you probably know, I've got a shiny new website on the go. It's still a work in progress, but all the essentials are there. You can check it out HERE or via the link on the sidebar. As always, feedback is more than welcome!

How to post fully interactive 3D models to blogs.

Found an incredibly useful little website - - which can host and display fully interactive .obj files. What's more, you can view the wireframes too, so you can see all our dodgy modelling in full detail!

It's still in the beta stage, so it's not perfect. There appears to be some missing faces, but that could be down to bad modelling instead of the website. It doesn't seem to agree with n-gons very well. Still, it's pretty damn snazzy. You can even embed it in the blog. Certainly quicker than uploading turnarounds, you can view it on the website to see it in greater detail HERE

Also, you need to have a half decent graphics card, chrome/firefox and openGL enabled! Google it if you don't know what that means. 

Left mouse rotates around, it feels like it "grabs" the model and rotates around that point. Middle mouse zooms in, and Right mouse for pan. Enjoy!

Veggie Pirates - Spud Gun Turnaround

Salutations! It's been a while, mainly because I've been so busy working my little fingers to the bone for Ticked Off (read: getting fat and playing Worms). However! I've got some nice shiny work to show you guys.

Team Veggie Pirates asked me to design and model a mounted potato canon, to rain down starchy death on the gummy bear infidels. It's been on my to-do list for a while and I finally managed to rattle it out in a couple of days, I wish I'd done it a lot sooner because it was nice to be working on something other than our own film for once.

This was the first design, but Tom and I felt it was the most appealing... complete with strapped on gas cannister, bicycle handle triggers, and a bolted on bucket primed with the finest ammo.

Here's the 3D model turnaround. As per usual, best viewed on youtube here... full screen, HD, yadda yadda.

Stay tuned for some more updates, but the majority of work these days is on the team production blog which you should most definitely be following!

Take it easy,
