My Journey with 3D: Told through software

Fun Fact: There are more polygons in one of the window handles in the left image above than in the entire image on the right. Seeing as it’s now pretty much exactly 4 years since I first started exploring 3D as a field to go into, I thought it might be a good idea toContinue reading “My Journey with 3D: Told through software”

Modelling Tips: Painting the Past

This is a general tip list for 3D production and assumes the artist has at least a basic grasp of post-production. We’ve all done it at one time or another; scoured a search engine or Pinterest for hours on end, drooling over some of the 3D art some fantastic person or the other has postedContinue reading “Modelling Tips: Painting the Past”

It remains my proudest piece of work to this day; so much so I gave it a full video animation, which may be viewed here. The aim withContinue reading “Modelling Tips: Designing Fictional Architecture”

Architecture wasn’t forgotten about either, and the period saw an interesting transition from the embellishment so familiar of Victorian opulence, to the increasingly pragmatic, forward-looking designs of a modern nation.

Looking back at my first blog post: Rebuilding a lost aeroplane factory

[This was my first ever blog post from 2017, and since my RAF history post proved so popular, I thought it might be fun to feature it again for a while 🙂 (21/04/21)] It was an interesting series of events which led me to working on this project. After approaching the local town Archive toContinue reading “Looking back at my first blog post: Rebuilding a lost aeroplane factory”
