Another visual from a past-project, decided the other day to go back and just quickly spend 15 minutes tweaking the colours and add a little more atmosphere to the concept.

The attraction had to be designed to fit into an existing location, so a fair amount of work went into the design of the dressing, as well as seeing what we could be done to the finishings on the existing walls of the building to help create the look that we desired.

A couple of concepts for a UK attraction I worked on a while ago now.  Great to see my work make it through to the finished product.

A visual from a little side project for a game I'd been working earlier this year.  All done in photoshop, more nautical visuals to come...

Three concepts from a small weekend project for a game i was working on at the end of last year.  All the guns are based loosely on several differing 19thCentury Revolver designs - each have been given a good dose of sci-fi elements ...

A couple of weekends ago I made a few studies of a local Iron Age reenactment museum.  From these, I thought I'd take the time to put together a more in depth study of an Iron Age settlement.

This time I thought I'd post some character designs from a past animation.  The story was loosely based around extracts from several of Viking Sagas.

All's quiet on the Eastern Front ... too quiet

Another revisit to old project!  I'd previously worked on some character designs and thought I'd take the chance to look at some of the locations.  As well as testing out some new techniques.

I recently had the opportunity to exhibit my work in both Pinewood and Shepperton Studios - I'm hugely grateful to all involved in the setting up of the exhibition, thanks for a great two days.

A quick visual from a short SFX/VFX promo - the concept - floating drilling platforms over a Sahara-like desert.

Just revisiting some work from an old project, a 17th Century Dutch Port, the original design looked a little bare and simplistic, so I took the time to have a crack at a new visual with a bit more atmosphere.
