Analog Notebook

Modeled a notebook that I do the majority of my sketches in. I then decided to play around with modo’s animation tools. Nothing exciting just a notebook spinning around. The top page is a current side project that’s in my current notebook. The concept on the notebook is inspired by an old SNL skit I watched recently.

Thanks Syfy this can only enhance my geekiness, don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing?

Retro Sonic Disruptor Hand Cannon

Been kind of busy this past month had some free time today to build something in modo. And here are early renders of what i knocked together. I call it the Sonic Disruptor hand cannon. I have some other idea on how to texture this. Hopefully I’ll get around to it sometime this week or next. Also built a new computer over the past couple of weeks and have not moved my texture library over to the new machine. So I used the wallpaper from this site in the texture for the plain that the gun is resting on.

Update: Hanging Neo-Diner Set



Alright this afternoon I added some extra stuff here. If I had the time and a more powerful computer I would build out the entire facility.
Also this morning I filled a couple of pages of my sketch book with other ideas for furniture.
So I will probably be modeling some of that in the future.

Hanging Neo-Diner Set



I had a dream the other night that I was in a diner or restaurant that had all the tables and chairs hanging from the ceiling. So I modeled and rendered this today in modo. These are early renders with very little UV mapping involved. There are other ideas I would like to explore here so I think I will be coming back to this project in the near future.
