Business Cards

Yeah I know this isn't the most exciting post showing off animated 3D models whirling in VR, it is just my new business cards. That said, I haven't actually made OINKFROG cards before so this is…


Website Respawn

Ok, the previous site didn't actually die or anything, but spending a suite of hours over the last few days migrating over to the new WordPress platform feels like a rebirth of sorts. I admit I had…


Udacity Unity VR

I hadnt done much in Unity for quite a while and the GoogleVR tools are getting better all the time. So I dived in and worked through the Udacity VR intro course - to get more exposure to both their…


X-Wing Space Station Modelling

Game design and Star Wars

Character Design Challenge and Baldi

Tahm Kench Pool Party Concept

I had a desire to draw up a skin concept for League of Legends today. Not having any particular place to start I thought about the skin sets and decided on something for the Pool Party suite - esp as…

High School Drama Zombie Golems

While brainstorming mechanics for the Golems game we were talking through the notion that the protagonists were busy with other aspects of their lives while also trying to assemble golems. We…


Nurturing Golems and Games

While doodling away with another Golem which just happened to be a rather heart-shaped fellow, I was thinking about games and conflict and caring. Anyone who has played board games will know that…


Doom Golems

As I think a little more about how a cooperative game of quirky golems going out to defend the 'base' for the players I was thinking about doooom. We played a nice family game or Red November last…


Nasus Q Scarf

Here is an idea for a League of Legends themed scarf (it is coming up on winter here in our lovely southern hemisphere). When we were talking about scarves the other day I thought a LoL-themed one…
