Here in you find some of my art I have published over the years. I guess I got into art at an early age and have always had a bit of an obsession with scifi, much to consternation of certain teachers and lecturers!
After a bit of a wilderness period after leaving Art college, I finally got back in things, especially when I had a dabble with some 3D programs, then I got hold of DOGA a free and Japanese modelling program (its kind of like have a box of parts, then you can create what you like) Since then I’ve moved on, I usually use sketchup. Rendering I use Vue D’espirit. Post work and backdrops I use Photoshop, finally I use illustrator for plans and logos.
After some strange and odd jobs, I am now involved in managing a website, blogs, facebook and advertising. I manage my own blog and my good ladies too. (http://ladybttn.wordpress.com/)
I’ve done work for VBAM games, MJ12 (War Dogs), TRO3063 Project and Mongoose Publishing.
Not content with doing all this 3D CG stuff, I do mini painting too, I’ve done alot, alas I don’t have photo of alot of it.
I take commissions so feel free to drop me a line. Enjoy and don’t forget your Towel.
