Dino Tales — Adult Dinosaurs

In addition to the majority of the baby dinosaurs, I also created most of their parents as well. Interacting with the adult dinosaurs in the game is a part of both the exploring and nurturing aspect of the game play.

All models were created in Autodesk Maya, sculpted and hand painted in Zbrush, with additional texture work completed in Adobe Photoshop.

Hakitzu Elite: Robot Hackers

A video game project with a bit of punch; Hakitzu Elite is a mobile game with the primary aim of teaching basic Javascript coding skills to kids and teens. The game received much praise in the educational field as well as tech, getting featured time on the App Store as well as getting implemented into multiple skills for curriculum usage.

My role on this project was primary creator of character and prop models and texture, adding a large contribution to the creation of all the robots and weapons. All models were created in Maya and textured in Photoshop.

Animals for Aurasma

These varied, realistic animal models were created for use in mobile augmented reality app Aurasma. Client end application varied, but for this particular project, animals were required; realistic but still low enough poly to run on mobile devices.

Models created in 3D Studio Max, sculpted and painted in Zbrush, additional texture work completed in Adobe Photoshop.

Data Acquisition System

This peculiar piece of machinery was something I was commissioned to reverse engineer from life; without CAD files or any other engineering help! An interesting endeavor.

ARK Charity Ball — Escher Animation

For this project I worked with Drive Productions to create an eye popping introduction piece for the annual ARK charity ball in London. The animation would be projected upon a ballroom sized 40 foot high wall; hence the bizarre proportions.

I worked with an incredible team to create this mind boggling piece based on M.C. Escher’s artwork. All 3D work was done in 3D Studio Max, with lighting done with Mental Ray and Vray. I had a hand in model creation, as well as doing all textures/shaders and lighting. I also composited the piece together in After Effects.

Mahindra Tractors TV Advert

A television commercial advertisement created for the American leg of the company Mahindra Tractors. The advert goes over all the advantages of having a Mahindra brand tractor over the competitors.

My part in this piece to come in and create the nice finishing touches of some birds in the final shot of the advert. I created a versatile bird model in 3D Studio Max and created the textures in Adobe Photoshop. Textures were applied and lighting created through V-ray. The model was also rigged for flying and animated, before finally being composited into the final shot.

Academy Sports and Outdoors TV Advert

A television commercial advertisement created for the American company Academy. The advert features Nascar driver Danica Patrick showing her enthusiasm for sports with a series of intense displays of her althetic prowess.

My part in this piece was for the sequence of her throwing a football clear across the store. I created a high poly photo real model of a football to be composited into the shot. I additionally created all textures used for the model, as well set up the shot with lighting replicating the actual lighting from the video shoot. All modeling was done in 3D Studio Max, with textures and lighting done via V-ray. Textures were created in Adobe Photoshop.

Dino Tales — Baby Dinosaurs

No dinosaur children’s game would be complete without a set of adorable baby dinosaurs to play as. For the Dino Tales game, I created a handful of baby dinosaur models to be rigged and set as playable characters. All models were based on actual dinosaur species, but were stylised to fit the look and feel of the game.

All models were created in Autodesk Maya, sculpted and hand painted in Zbrush, with additional texture work completed in Adobe Photoshop.

Industrial Models

Industrial models created for former drill specialist Smith International. All models created from engineering work ups of actual pieces of equipment, final renders done in Cinema 4D. Models would then go on to be used in animations showing how the equipment functioned down hole; where no camera could ever go.
