I admit it: I'm a total geek. I love electronics, programming, 3D art, vintage Apple hardware, and whisky. I'm always juggling half a dozen projects. I also enjoy documenting it all: my successes, my failures, my experiences... and everything geeky along the way.

Geek Extraordinaire. Yeh, I said it.

It's the first render of the new year. What do I have in mind? Not much really; I'm just trying to get the creative juices flowing.

I started with a new character…Ceridwen.

ceridwen 2

I'm really liking this figure. She has a nice classic European look to her and a fantastic skin texture. I set the stage for a sci-fi-fi scene and dropped in some lights.

Not bad, but Ceridwen comes with a few crazy fantasy / sci-fi skin textures. It would be a shame not to use one of them.

That's a pretty awesome looking texture.

I switched up the lights and played around with the depth-of-field.

On deck 3 - 18 hours

Pretty nice, but it needs more sci-fi. I dropped in a sci-fi pistol and tweaked the pose.

Now we're talking!

On deck 8 - 13.5 hours

All it needed was some smoke and flare, and a few color effects and it was good to go.
