Just doodling...and having some fun. Thanks for stopping by.

Just having fun on my time off. I have been dirt bike riding every weekend with my 250cc bike, and sketching. Always been fascinated with machines that go fast. Here are some doodles I put together from my sketchbook thinking of futuristic machines. The little ships below are done on a little yellow pad of post its. When xeroxed it turns white. Makes a great portable little sketchbook.

Well I am finally enjoying some time off, and going to spend the majority of it working on my blog and new work. I haven't had a real vacation (longer than a day off) for the past 4.5 years. It is finally really nice to just sit back and sketch, and draw at the local coffee house. Here is a collection of characters I was working on from my sketchbook. Thanks for stopping by.

Finally back. I have been so busy over the past couple months: I had to go overseas to India to help oversee some production problems with our 3D pipeline, busy with family, and work.... I have barely had a spare minute to myself. ( I have some sketches I will share soon from my sketchbook from my India trip.) A friend of mine asked me to share some thumbnails & thinking that I go through before I jump into a set... so here they are.

Arabia #3

Here is another location I designed for the Arabia project. This is a round room with columns and one center of interest for the story. I had to design a alphabet that doesn't really exist- that way we wouldn't have to worry about offending anyone by accident. (Even had to get it approved by the legal department.) After I modeled the alphabet I was able to use it throughout this project for our version of hieroglyphic reliefs.

Arabia #2

Thanks everyone for stopping by and for all the great comments!!! Happy New Year everyone. Here is a huge location I was working on from a rough thumbnail, to finished model with some rough blocking for the story department. I included some extra shots on this location to help display the overall size & different views available. When I was finished we seemed to like shooting from every angle we could find in 3D, but had to eventually pick only a couple. This really helped the story department when it came time to boarding. (Can't seem to get the video to upload properly.. will try again.)
