Space Baroque Venrusi Monk 1

The Venrusi are a tall slender humanoid species that devote themselves to religious activities. Part of Space Baroque, an IP defined by political intrigue, galactic wars, strange alien races, and all the things you'd expect from a top notch space opera.

Space Ship 141 3D Print

A 3D print of one of my spaceship designs, printed by Shapeways using Stereolithography. The ship is approx 20cm long. Designing for print is an interesting challenge, discovering which details work and which are too small. Happy with how it turned out, may do a painted version in the future.

Space Ship 141 Model

Doing a 3D print of one of my spaceships for fun, so I chose a design from my sketchbook that I felt would work well, then made a full 3d model in 3dsmax. Had tons of fun greebling this with little details, and of course left some larger areas more empty to have a balance of small and big shapes. Printing it via Shapeways, will post pics of the print next week.

Edna Mode AirBNB

It is so weird seeing something you helped model / shade / light in an animated film become an airbnb real life location 20 years later :D

I'm On Cara

I've been on Cara for a year now, but since the site is having a huge second moment, figured I'd let people know I'm over there too. Great to see so many familiar faces.

Visual Effects Society

I am honored to be inducted into the Visual Effects Society (VES) this year. Anyone who knows me as far back as the compuserve days knows community is incredibly important to me. Unfortunately I've been witness to a lot of my communities being disassembled over the last decade, so I hope to spend my next few years trying to contribute to and create new communities to replace them. Looking forward to being an active member in the VES and many others.
