Some more paintings

Thought I would post a few more paintings, mixture of old and new. All are acrylic on canvas except for the four lads in the bar, that's an oil on board. Apologies for the poor photo quality on a couple of these, I really need to get a better camera :)

 A painting of banna strand in County Kerry - painted as a 
present for my brother and his wife's wedding.

 A painting of LifeTime Lab in Cork City - painted on 
commission from Cork City Council.

 Four lads in a bar - this was taken from a black and white 
photo from the old Irish tourism board.

Space Marine Dropship

Here is some work I did on a sci fi space marine dropship concept. It was just a quick and dirty model based off a few biro sketches. I was working on cloud particles also in Max at the time and decided to do a short movie of a dropship flying over said clouds. Thanks go to Oli Harrison for the sound FX on the movie.
Just click on the youtube link to see the full size movie in 720P.

Environment work

Here are a few renders of one of the environments I worked on for DJ Hero 2, I converted all the shaders to mental ray for all the nice reflections and soft shadows : )

Below are some viewport captures from 3D Studio Max of the vertex coloured mesh.

3D Assets - Personal

Here is character I created for an animator colleague, it's based on a mexican wrestler and inspired by characters from the lucha libre comic. I've also included a few of the concept sketches I did in working towards this final character. He went through various stages of grumpiness, rotundness and age range :)

3D Assets - Work Related

Here are a few of the environment assets I created for DJ Hero 2 at Freestyle games. These are captured from the Max viewport and all have direct x shaders applied.

The following are guns I created at Swordfish studios for 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. The Main images are Mental Ray renders from Max using my source texture assets, and there is also a standard render to show the original diffuse more clearly. All weapons are 3rd person only and some are heavily modified versions of the original weapons. I have a couple more weapons and I'll post those later.
