Research & development
Here's a quote...
" Not every piece of creative work you do will be great... But it's all the sucky ideas that lead you to the better or even great ideas. " - © Rodd Chant
I've always been someone who thrived on client work. I'd never actually sat and down and created for myself. It's when you do this that you really start to learn stuff and develop as an artist.
So now that I'm up and running as a visualisation and design studio, I'm making time to have a play-around. 3D doodling if you will.
Some of these pictures may be a bit strange, but it's the things I've learned, the techniques tried, that model I fixed up and those textures I found, that go a long way towards my next commissioned project.
