I’m about to do some work with a company that uses Plasticine (Newplast clay) for pretty much all their modelling. I was a little embarrassed that I hadn’t modelled with Plasticine for a long long time and last time I did it was in coloured strips! I grabbed one of my black plastic busts that I use for doing heads on and modelled this Smoking Orc today for practice. I’m a long time Sculpey user but I have to say I’ve really enjoyed...

I wanted to do something similar so I took one of my favourite Disney Villains ‘Yzma’ from the ‘Emperors New Groove’ and pimped her a little. I think she’s ready to go into ZBrush next.

I’ll run another larger...

Here’s the SSVFX Breakdown: Role: Modeling, UVing, texturing the Hero asset (shared with Paddy Fin). +low res distance doubles. Ed Bruce and ScreneScene have been nominated in the 12th Annual VES Awards in the ‘Outstanding Supporting Visual Effects in a...
Continuing to push my 2D skills again. This is a 45 minute timelapse showing a Photoshop sketch being painted. I was inspired by as concept from Snow White and the Huntress but it quickly evolved into it’s own...
