3D artist modelling and visualisation portfolio. Specialising in archiectural visualisations and stylised 3D models
It seems like ages since I have properly updated my blog. I’ve been pretty busy with uni work for the past couple of months and have finally finished my first (of two) final year projects, which means I can spend my free time working on the visualisations.
The project brief was to design a building to house the commercial research branch of the Huddersfield University Engineering School. The building will be mixed use and contain offices, research laboratories and specialist workshop spaces, fast and efficient construction methods are also major requirements.
My final design is a glulam portal frame with Modcell straw bale prefabricated external walls for their extremely good insulation and structural properties. Other technologies that at present in the final design are;
I’ll cover the technology more thoroughly when the visualisations are done, but for now here are a couple of progress renders from the weekend. The building was created using ArchiCAD 16 and then 3ds max & Vray were used for the renders.
I received an email this morning from Mark Burginger, the inventor of Qubits Construction Toys, letting me know that the new website and promotional video were live and that they featured the vinyl toy characters I designed back in October. Its great to see some of my work go from concept sketch to being used as a branding element on such a fun and inventive product.
I have attached the image from the landing page but I encourage you to visit the site for yourself, it looks much better on there. http://www.qubits.com/
Please note; I designed and created the characters but I did not create the image above and had nothing to do with the animation.
Finally finished the accessories for the characters (helmet, hammer, spanner, a roll of plans and a pencil for behind the ear) and managed to find some time to put together a final render. I’ve really enjoyed working on this project but I’m glad its finished now so I can put all my energy into Uni work.
My next update should be of an engineering and technology building I am currently designing for a University project 🙂
The character, hair and helmet are all finished now which I’m pretty happy about. Just working on some more accessories for them to interact with and then it will be complete. Its been a fun project to work on and I’ve learnt a fair bit more about organic modelling.. which is always a plus 🙂
Still got a few little bumps and pinching to sort out here and there, and I’m not 100% happy with the shape of the arms/shoulders yet… but should have it finished pretty soon with a toolbox full of accessories.
Hi, welcome to my 3D portfolio.
I’m a self taught 3D artist and final year Architectural Technology student at Huddersfield University with focus on sustainable design and a passion for architectural visualisations and pretty much anything 3D.
