Recent work.


Did this drawing recently as a piece of fan art based on 'Harbinger Down' a SF/Horror film that was financed via Kickstarter, that I put some money into ! This is just a made up creature,and not actually in the film !!


Another recent pic, very much Creature from the Black Lagoon or the Gillman from Monster Squad.

Mask Design


Back on January 29th 2013 I made a post about a mask I'd made at Uni, well the images here were from my original design ideas when it was going to be some kind of frog/toad man.


This design above as do some of my others, have a look of the creatures from the Gerry Anderson TV show Space Precinct, it wasn't intentional, but once it was pointed out to me I could see the similarity in several of them. It also had a feel of the Toad character from the Aardman animated film Flushed Away, well mainly the smoking jacket, more than the face.



I liked the colours on this one that's above, I think the blue and the orange go well together.


The one above reminds me of the baby dinosaur from the Henson show Dinosaurs. Again not intentional.



Eye studies.


This was an attempt to make it bare a bit of a likeness to the Creature from the Black Lagoon type of creature.




Again a bit Gillman, and also some Cthulhu thrown in for good measure.



This one is a bit more insect like.


And this was a costume design to go with the actual mask I ended up making, see my post for Jan 29th down the page.

Zombie Make-up & Photoshop Tweaks.


Here's a version of the Zombie make-up I did on James Morris that I've altered in Photoshop. Added dirt to the T-Shirt, re-done the eyes, blacked out some teeth and changed the skin colour.

Zombie Make-Up


This is a recent prosthetic make-up I've done at Uni on one of my classmates.


The make-up was sculpted over a lifecast of the college technician in Newplast Plasticine.

The appliance wasn't a great fit, but I manged to make it work, though around the mouth caused problems.



One of the guys in the college's photography dept took these photo's for me, I made some tweaks to colour in Photoshop.

Retro Rocketship


I started this rocketship model some time ago, but only recently did I get around to completing it. I love the whole Flash Gordon, Dan Dare type of spacecraft design, so I thought I'd get some renders of this model up.This was made in 3DS Max.




Here it is next to my larger rocketship, which still needs some work doing on it.

Communications Array

 Here's something else I'm on with, I started this a while back but have been doing work on this as well as several other things. Not sure what this will eventually be attached to,either more radars or a ship of some sort.




Federation Pursuit Ship - Alternate Versions

I started building this miniature back in June of 2012 based on a CGI model I'd made some years earlier, this is an alternate design based on the Blake's 7 Federation pursuit ship.Here's my CG Model above.

And here's the work in progress on the miniature, this won't match the CG version exactly as I'm taking a lot of the stylistic detailing from the miniatures Martin Bower made for the original show, but the shape of the final ship will be based closely to my design. This model like the original uses a fair few parts from the Airfix Apollo Saturn V Rocket model kit.


The final model should be around 18-19 inches in length. I plan to finish this over the summer once I have college work out of the way.


Just a few ships and miniatures from SF films off the top of my head that used the Saturn V, X-Wing Fighter, Y-Wing Fighter, Millennium Falcon, Star Destroyer, Blockade Runner, Escape Pod, Death Star Surface Tiles,Imperial Shield Generator on Endor, Battlestar Galactica, Galactica Shuttle, Cowboy's Ship and the Hephaestus Station from Battle Beyond the Stars, Space Academy's Seeker, Dragos's Dragon ships from Jason of Star Command The Eagle Transporter from Space 1999 to name just a small selection

Sinner Helmet - Recent Project

I made this helmet for a recent college project, the concept behind it is a helmet worn by sinners who are put to hard labour on a hostile planet in a far flung dystopian future. Included here are some of my concepts, construction of the mask and stand and some pics of the final mask.





Here are some pictures of the final helmet on it's display stand, I need to get some photos of someone wearing the helmet at some point.
