HOME MODELS ART CONTACT ME

Many have asked me if my models are CG or physical builds and whether or not my finished images are created using 3D software. Here's what I do:

1. I start with a very rough concept by illustrating it in Adobe Photoshop.

2. I create patterns in Adobe Illustrator.

3. I use the patterns to cut pieces from illustration board and build the model. I detail the model using wood shapes and plastic items found around the house. Then I paint and weather the model using powders and finish with dull coat enamel paint.

4. I photograph the finished model in natural sunlight.

5. I knock out the model in Photoshop.

6. And finally, I create composite art using the knocked out model and other images and/or illustrated elements I create keeping in mind the direction of light source at all times so that everything appears to be unified.
