more mech progress

I've done a bunch of tidying up under the hood, filled in some holes, stopped cables intersecting etc. so not much visible change apart the release of a hooter - I just couldn't stand to see it caged up like that..


Didn't make the top 50 in the Dominance War.

I'm not bitter - there were a lot of (at least 50) entries better than mine.

I hope the top 10 doesn't consist purely of anime/gears of war style models though, that sort of thing doesn't exactly push creative boundaries.

anyway, sulk over

Facegen head

I don't suppose anyone will mind me posting these.

Over the last week at work I built a custom head for facegen with a full set of facial expression and lipsynch morphs - these are a few screengrabs from Facegen using my custom head.

Gratuitous it may be but I've had it on good authority that this is art so bear with me.

This is pretty challenging for me - I dont do non-organics, I don't do high poly and I don't want to unwrap 60 odd individual cables - that said, I love her and I intend to see this through to the bitter end even if it kills me.

Dominance war 3 entry

This is my entry to this years dominance war character modelling competition. It marks my second attempt at a "next-gen" character model and I'm feeling fairly pleased with how it turned out. There's a lot of things I'll do differently next time but it was a good learning experience and at last I'm catching up with the rest of the universe after 4 years working with a renderer that would have looked ropey in 1999.

First post

Ever since I invented the internet in 1993 I've kept a fairly low profile but since I've been exposing my various creations on 3dtotal of late it seemed sensible to spread the love to those outside the 3d nerd community and this is probably the easiest way of going about it
