Here’s the latest project I’m working on; RI Rogue. My goal was to create a Star Wars genre ship. Hope you enjoy this early look.

A look back . . . and forward (ft. RI Majestic Mrk2)

Here’s some fun for you today. I ran across some old ship images from back in 2005. I decided to take one and give it a new treatment with my current 3D software. The first screen-capture image was done in Wings 3D. The second in Bryce 3D and polished in Ps. The third is a new take on the ship within Blender 3D (my currently used software of choice). NOTE – I intentionally left the weapons off of this new take. Not because I’m anti-gun, which I’m not, but I wanted to just enjoy the sheer beauty in the form(s). I will eventually post a similar scene with this new one but wanted to post these now.

I hope you enjoy the look back . . . and forward.

RI Thunderhead Mrk4 – “Storm’s a’comin’!”

Here is a fresh model; RI Thunderhead Mrk4. This turned out almost spot-on with my concept sketch. When I started modeling this I realized how I apparently had been subconsciously channeling the old (well loved) videogame “Crimson Skies”. So I decided to really keep with that rustic, nostalgic theme and create this tribute image. I hope you enjoy!
