Men Will Be Boys Album Cover

Hey all,

I was commissioned by the band Men Will Be Boys to do their album cover! I've had a lot of fun with it. I was originally going to go with these wooden women-silhouettes because they had some in 2d format they really liked, and wanted one to have a sweater on. This was an early version:

... However, they decided this was a too "new" sort of look; they wanted something that was reminiscent of the 60s, with a bit of a country appeal. So this is the newer version (unfinished):

I love doing book and album covers! It's really fun, I get to work with my clients to find out what they really like, and then try to emulate what I think they'd enjoy the most while trying to make it as presentable as possible. Very fun!

WIP Waterfront Book Cover Update

Hi all,

Still working on this book cover, while looking for more work. The scene is coming along nicely, and there will be a series of book covers in the future for all of the Split Crow mystery series. I love doing book covers!

This is an early image. The final result will have depth of field, fog, titles, and some more clutter. I also need to darken the colour on that ship.

While I have been given permission to post these images, they are not for use and reproduction. The final result belongs to my client.

Commission: Book Cover

I'm currently working on another book cover, this time for historical mysteries.

I just did a test render of the sign I'm making and liked how it worked out. The texture on the beams is just a placeholder, but I'm happy with the sign itself.

Update - Better Wood Beams:

Current Project: Wasp

Hi all,

Just for fun I'm making a wasp in 3ds Max. Was just playing with it a little and rendered this out.

I also did up a better render of my Howard Regulator:

Female Model

Well, I'm back! It appears it's been a long time since I've posted anything here - I've worked at a lot of places since, but nothing I can really use for a demo reel - almost all of it was NDA or gov. security projects.

I'm back looking for work after another stint with Atlantis Systems Corp., and am working on a female model for some practice in 3ds Max. I'm also working on a wasp model.
