Show real revamp



Work has not been following my way so I took a look over why that might be and what I could change to help. So I looked at and revamped my Show Reel to really show off my talents with some new material as well as some classics.

Where does the time go??

Well, I havnt fallen off the face of the planet, yet anyway. I have been finding it hard to fit in working on maya bits inbewteen working all the hours I can get at my currnet job, (of which the season is ending soon)and looking for a new job, (even if its somthing to get me through the winter.)

The last project I was working vanished from my hard drive while I was on holiday and have not since recovered any scraps of it. Strange things have happened. However not to be disheartened, I have been working on yet another indoor environment to practice my modleing, setting and lighting skills. This project is not very far along but heres a preview.




There are still plenty pf issues to fix and objects to add. Its work in progress.

Abandoned Saloon

Over the last few weeks I have hand my hand in a few pies, with many things going on. I have spent many hours each week at my part time job trying to get some money together, (no more student financing to fall back on all year round. I have also been helping out a friend of the family create their website, a nice new little challenge to pass some time, as well as various other day to day events. Along side all of which I have been keeping a hand in working with Maya.

I want to spend somtine working on enviroment design projects, from reading many books in my spare time I have decided to create my impression of some scenes and locations. The image below is a work in progress of an abandoned saloon bar from the book The Host, by Stephenie Meyers.
