UE4 Sci Fi level mess around done






Although it still has a few niggley problems I'm considering this done now so I can move onto other stuff. This was basically just me messing around when I had a few minutes here and there. I wanted a clean look and some Kubrick-esque style framing and lighting (as I'm sick to damn death of everything having to be dirty and knackered looking, everyone and their dog seems to be doing that in substance painter, substance designer these days.)

Anyway here are a few screen shots:

You can also seem them and a couple of videos over on my Art Station account HERE

Proving why Banksy 'shredding a painting live at an auction' was a fake and a setup.






I saw on the news about Banksy 'shredding a painting live at an auction and was horrified how its been presented a a fact and not the 100% provable fake is no doubt is.  So I said as much on my Facebook page with a few people asking me to outline why, as it may interst a few other people, here's the video.... oh and it also outlines Banksy's real name (which the auction houses and median have known for years but choose not to mention.)

Celebrating 25 years in 3D!





In September 1993 I 1st started doing 3D when I was 23 years old.... quarter of a century ago!  So I thought to mark this large milestone I'd bang out a quick video this morning. (...and realized in the process it'd been a year since I stuck anything on YouTube!)

It's been a long road, and this video covers lots of stuff and answers a few questions as well, its 1/2 hour long, so make yourself a coffee 1st ;) But that only works out at just over a minute of video per year ;)

Unreal engine level (work in progress)


Here's some images for a work in progress unreal level I've been working on / messing about on of late.  The level still has some issues (such as some alignment issues etc) still to work but give you all and idea of what I am doing in my free-time.

I Got Married!



I got married this week to Louise, we had a small private family registry office wedding then a truly massive one in front of all our family and friends yesterday.  So after nearly a year of planning, we can now get back to what passes for normal.  I'm a very lucky guy to have found my soul mate and for her to agree to marry such a mad old bastard like me.

An Article That I Was Interviewed For



I was asked a short time ago to answer a few questions for Dice about working in the games industry.  The article is now live and can be read here:



There's one incorrect thing I have to point out, that is that although it says I am currently working as external contractor for chaos group, that in fact stopped last September. Right now I'm not working, stil hunting for a job and doing freelance as it comes in.

Getting back into sculpting....



Its been a fair old while since I was sculpting regularly.  I sort of stopped as at the time I was doing a lot of sculpting or rocks, cliffs, mountains etc that can be soul destroying very fast.  Plus once I got in from work I rarely wanted to sit in front of a computer again for even more hours.  So I sort of stopped....

Then after a couple of years I got a mental block against even trying to sculpt as I was convinced I had 'lost it'.  Basically the biggest enemy was my own brain.  But of late I've got the sculpting bug back with a vengeance and working to get my sculpting back up to where it was for personal stuff. So here's a few doodles from the last week.
