RtIN - Petri Dish

A petri dish! I've modelled a bunch of other stuff but I haven't rendered out any WIP images yet. I could post screenshots, but I kind of like the higher production look, even if it means I post less often. Sorry :(

RtIN - Monitor

Production for "Recording the Illuminated Neuron" has officially begun (well a couple weeks ago) and I've gotten something of a start on modelling. I've spent a bit of time working on getting a WIP rendering system set up so it's easy for me to render out and post WIP images. Still lots of opportunity to tweak the system but I'm happy with the results so far using sIBL from

I haven't decided whether I will want to post renders without wires or with, most of the time. Here are two with wires on top and one without.

New year, new semester, treefrog

It's 2013 and I'm jumping back into the swing of things for the final semester of the program. How is that even possible? Everything is very much more scary this side of Christmas, but I'm really looking forward to it too.

I made this treefrog in ZBrush (Hyla versicolor). It's a screenshot, not a proper render (I need to figure out how to do that in Z). I'd like to do more animal and nature scenes in 3D, so this was a small attempt to get into that a bit more. There's still so much to learn, it's rather overwhelming. But it's fun.

Happy New Year,

P.S. I know I promised a Hobbit review before Christmas... but the plane landed before I'd written more than a paragraph, so I may or may not ever get round to finishing it. Sorry. Got to pick my battles.
