Digital environments tutorials on Youtube!

For some time I've pondered around the idea of creating video tutorials, but never quite found the time; until now that is! I found one of the reasons why I never quite managed to create a video tutorial was because I applied too much pre-planning. So this time I threw all the books out of the window, took a deep breath and said screw the pre-planning and just hit the record button! There's no talking or verbal instructions; just the raw recording of what I did. So with that in mind; here's my first semi-tutorial!


In this project I wanted to create a camera move over a baron, dystopian landscape, while making use of a few shots I recently took from the Vancouver waterfront tower. I began by matching the camera to the perspective of the photo plate. The next step involves building rough geometry around the main elements in the scene, for me to later project the photo back onto. Following steps include painting a rough concept for the surrounding environment and sculpting the surrounding environment in zbrush. You can view the first tutorial here.

istockphoto updated!

In the last few weeks I've being busy adding new content to my istockphoto portfolio. 

Using my skills as a matte painter I believe I can bring something new to the istock library with a cinematic and professional feel:

I finally managed to get an updated reel onto Vimeo, yay!

Here's my 2011 Reel with various projects I've worked on in the last few years compiled together. Don't forget to check out the pages above for more updated work! Enjoy!

I need to go through and compile a more visual break down, but for now it's better than what I had yesterday :)

I've also uploaded a separate break down of one of the shots;

More working coming online soon!
