The Coffee Spider Bot (Concept art)


Concept Art for the coffee spider bot. This robot delivers coffee in seconds will satisfy all you coffee needs.

This concept art is for a 3d printing project. I needed to create a machine that would be too impractical. A ginormous robot spider that’s sole purpose is to make and deliver coffee fits the bill.

The 3d model is almost done. I will upload it soon.

I finally got my spaceship 3d printed, I will upload some photos soon.

Monster Revised (Leviathan Game)

scorpian monster with claws and death

Update: After inserting the monster into the game, he was a bit too hard to see, so I went back to his purple coloring.

If you like to rotate this 3d model at all angles, you can view it on :

I have revised the monster a third time. When inserting the monster into the game, the bright colors didn’t match the atmosphere of the game. I added some more clamps and gave him a poisonous stinger. This is the benefit of modular design. It took only an hour and a half to implement these changes. The only disadvantage of modular design is hiding the seams where the polygons connect. That’s where using a singular mesh has it’s advantage, but just try to add more polygons to a mesh that has already has uvs. It’s a nightmare.

My Rusty Argonian Mage


A sketch of the argonian character I play in TESO. The argonian is one of the races you can play in The Elder Scrolls. They are sentient humanoid reptiles that have more in common with an amphibians then lizards.

The Monster – Leviathan (Finished Painting)

monster concept artwork

I finally finished the painting. About 7 hours of work. For time sake when creating the model, I should make the character symmetrical so the tentacle hands where replaced with claws. I feel this is one of my best concept paintings so for.  It’s going to be fun sculpting the model. Since this is the only character in the game, more time can be spent on him.

He will only need 2 animations

Monster 12 Animated (Wip)


I really liked the design of my critter and decided to animate it. The main reason I bought the last humble bundle was for a animation program called Spriter Pro. I was able learn the software (compared to AE it was a cakewalk) and make a modular animation a couple hours.  Granted I could have done the same animation in AE but It would have taken more time to set up.

Daily Paint 20 – Chubby Unicorn


Yay. I made it to 20 days in a row. I decided to draw a unicorn. I’m not happy with it.

Creature Feature 2- Sarmarmia the Undead Queen

undead queen which monster

My sixth creature design. It could be pushed more. I am going though growing pains with character concepts at the moment. Since it is purely from my imagination, I should have looked at some references to push the clothing design, something that isn’t my strongest suite at the moment. I also made her arms incredibly lanky.  The goal was to 1. make a undead queen and 2. not fall into the cliche trope making it look like the Queen in Snow White or Maleficent. In all honestly it looks more like a sorceress then a queen. I spent about 2 hours on it. I’ve done worse.
