Hello Everyone! 

So I'm making this post to start documenting my progress and growth as an artist while getting feedback from the poly count community on my artwork so that I can continue to develop my skill set. Currently I'm working on fleshing out my portfolio so this will serve as a good motivator to keep at it and push myself! I will post Wips, finished renders, breakdowns, studies, and occasionally some good looking 3D assets. So I encourage criticism, tips & tricks, and pictures of your doggos and / or puppers. 

More images and stuff to follow!

    First project up is an older one that I am pulling off the shelves and reworking. Currently have same basic lighting set up, basic materials, and the walls are at least set up. My current sprint is working on the roof fidelity and polishing that up, before moving on to populating the scene with oodles of props 'n stuff!

    Overhauled the lighting with this pass, and worked in substance designer to create the Ivy and grass. Currently blocking out a tree, but I still have a horde of props to knock out.

    Played around with light settings added a few more props into the scene. 

    Also started looking into better foliage practices and hope to implement that into the next milestone! But current process and experimentation with tree models, which I hope to use to quickly generate a dense background.

    Took a mini break between work and my environment to work on this prop. Would love to get some feedback on it!

    good work! where are those metal bits that hold the yellow canister in place? the hot glow on base doesn't seem bright enough to me also the glow in the concept looks strongest along the sharp edge where yours looks more blobby. some of the splat details near the base of the sword would be cool too. also a point light in your presentation near the blade so that it looks like its lighting the sword like in the concept would be really great! this is really good but could be truly kick ass with a few more touches.

    Yeah great work on the blade ! My personnal opinion but I think I would accentuate the metalness of metallic part. It is metal, but I find that I don't feel enough the metal :)

    @Ged @Lether thank you both for the feedback! I'm planning to rework the metal map later this evening. I ended up reworking it some more after I posted this cause it wasn't sitting right with me so this is where it is at currently. Still need to bump that metal though. 

    As for those metal bits, I see now they get lost so will increase the size of them. But here is the current image that went pretty late last night tweaking lol

    holy guacamole, this is front page  :#

    Messed around with the metal some more and tried playing with that point light suggestion, but might be a little to strong for the first render? But gotta call it for the night.

    Hey man one thing you could try is having a gradient to the heat applied on the blade. Surely is the blade is producing the heat at the base the heat would not be the same all the way through. Also it might give you more interesting colors to play with.

    Made some edits (between trick-or-treaters) to the lighting to cut back on the intensity of the shine and added a gradient. Happy Halloween everyone!

    Trying to sneak in one more asset before the end of the year. 

    Working on some tank designs by James McDonald. Was able to knock this first tank out today, going to get to the rest in the coming week

    Didn't manage to wrap it up before the new year but still hammering away at it! Got all three blocked out, so next step is rounding out some edges and texturing.

    Just wrapped this up for a client. Initial concepts to demonstrate how an AR Game would look in a clients store, utilizing the Magic Leap. 







    More renders can be found on my portfolio!  Link in the footer.

    Going through big life updates but found some time to come back to this WIP





    Looking at it now, probably go back through and add more color variation to the model. Would love some C&C!

    Made some more progress on the tanks this evening. Have two more to UV and texture, then gotta make some small diorama elements for a good display base

    Been a while between updates but currently I am not digging the direction this is going. Lots of silly errors and texturing isn't coherent. Going to be scrapping the textures and reworking some parts of the models.

    Hi, and welcome back to my long crawl with this project! A few edits that have happened include creating a display platform and reworking the textures and style. The previous two versions of the tank's textures felt very matte and clay like. So decided to take another shot at it keeping the textures very simple by removing the decals and dirt while working more with the metal maps. I'll probably see y'all again in a few months when I have the time to redo the main body!

    Making some progress on the other variations. One more left and some set props and then I can crank out some nicer renders!
