Have you ever gone to a location with the intent to photograph a beautiful landscape only to discover that when you get there it's overcast, raining, and the colours are just not popping?

This isn't one of those occasions.

With 3D modelling, you can create that landscape you had in mind, and add your own individuality to it, the boundaries are limitless.

This was created in Blender 3D and uses the low polygon technique. Why "low poly" you may ask... well my MacBook Pro takes an age and a half to render anything in great detail. Time for an upgrade, I think so! ;)


Bored of the same old type?

After some deliberation, I've decided that I really should polish up on my typography skills and make myself into the "full package" type of graphic designer... where would a graphic designer be without typography?

The "creation" you see to the left was designed and rendered in Blender 3D, then imported into Adobe Photoshop for curve and levels adjustments, Adobe Illustrator was used for adding type and finishing touches.

You will see more typography pieces in the coming days and weeks.

Stay tuned! 

Fantastic... a new screwdriver!

You might as well know I am a huge Doctor Who fan. As a child, I remember sitting in front of the TV and being hypnotized by the beautiful title sequence with outstandingly entrancing music...and then being horrified as Tom Baker's Third Doctor got attacked by a Dalek mutation...

Anyway, now that I'm older I still get horrified by that scene.

The Seventh Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver

But that doesn't stop one from designing it - no, I haven't created a scene in which Tom Baker is being strangled by a Dalek octopus-type creature, but I have designed the Seventh Doctor's sonic screwdriver.

Exciting, I know -  I can barely sit still myself.
