It's the Nature of the Experiment

after many drawings of this base, I got frustrated...I could see it in my head, but I couldn't translate I modeled it out to help articulate I think I can draw it out.

I've jumped right into the fray with some environment a rule of thumb, you shouldnt jump all over the place with character design and environment....but...whatever.... If the inspiration is there, craft it.

Why haven't you seen the Cyrano blog yet?!?!?!!

So yeah, here are some updates of the model im working on for Cyrano. For those who don't know, Mitch Yager (insert Mitch's blog address here, but you don't have go make a blog Mitch) and I have just completed rough storyboards. The story is done! Now we're cleaning up the board images for smoother transitions and less confusion during the lieca stage.

The project is still very early, but I think we'll both agree that its starting off incredibly strong

So here it is! My woodchipper!!...I have to say, the rabbit doesn't have a chance in hell...This thing looks like it shredded a few trees, farm animals and amish people in it's day.
So, about the specs: Modelled, Textured in Maya, Rendered in Mental Ray, Zero light sources with final gather. Again...I have to extend thanks to classmates and fellow artists for providing critiques on this. Shout out to Dave Marler ( for the great idea of writting 'Clean Me!' into the dirt of the chipper....Classic!!!!

Happy Valentines Day!

When you work digitally for such a long stretch, sometimes you forget how much you love to draw and paint traditionally, So I took a little break. Just wanna give the heads up to Justin Morison ( for the critiques on this one.

Calling all fur artists... fur a pain...just on so many levels....the styling, the dynamics....It's slowly starting to make sense to me, but even seems almost impossible to replicate the wispy fuzz of rabbit fur in 3D. Hopefully the good peoples at can shed some light. I've left a post there.

My subject was 'Show me how to do rabbit fur or else I kill the bunny'
