GRAZIE VALE

General / 20 November 2021


It is no secret that Rossi has always been a huge inspiration to me. His spirit and passion has fuelled my work since the start. From the space monkey racer many years ago to more recent robots and mechs, an obvious dose of Rossi is always in the design.

It’ll be sad that today will be the last dance of his incredible motoGP career, but im sure its not the end of his racing. Thanks for the years of inspiration. Forever the Goat. Forever VR46 🏁🐐🛵🟡🏆4️⃣6️⃣

Spinning Things :: 002

General / 19 March 2021

Here's 2 more older works spinning around!

:: exoparasite :: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/kA3oz

A character design I did after spending a lot of time on my passion project - motoreaper. Motoreaper took a loooot of time, so this exoparasite was a good thing to keep things loose and quick for a change.


!! LOBSTAKU !! https://www.artstation.com/artwork/AO0x5

As much hardsurface designs that I do, I also love doing organic ones! Deep sea creatures and insects are big part of my inspiration and this design obviously draws from it.

Started rendering fancy new turntables of older works recently.. 

Nice to revisit old works and make use of the power of GPU to get these turntables out in a pretty reasonable time. I didn't do these back when I designed these works since it took way too long to render out with CPU.

Will try to do 1 every week till I either run out of oldies to revisit / finally have somethinew new to share haha :)

Will miss seeing Seb Vettel in red. One of my fav drivers on the gird.




An update with previous personal project of these F1 runner bots in the iconic Ferrari red & livery. Hope to spend more time on this to develop this project further in the future :)





ZBrush 2021 Beta

General / 15 August 2020

Few images done during ZB 2021 Beta test! The new dynamics and cloth brushes are super cool to use. Really nice to get folds and random details with the cloth brushes! New features in the zmodeler brush also helps with creating shapes faster! Still much more to explore :)
Thanks Pixologic team for the opportunity and always supporting my work!
For really good uses of the new features, check out Michael Pavlovich's work. His tests during beta was truly impressive!
