Some of my latest renders. Hope you enjoy. Feel free to browse my gallery too.


These are some of the best works from friends of mine. Really great renders and artwork. I'm inspired by you all.
UPDATE: 4/25/2015!  I've created a tutorial for this object also using Blender 2.74.  This Blender tutorial translates the techniques used in my 3dsmax video, to Blender.  The process here is virtually the same, with only some minor differences in workflow and tool function.  Be sure you have the Add Mesh: Extra Objects add-on enabled in User Preferences.  This tutorial depends on the Math Functions > Solids script in Blender to follow along.

In the followig tutorial, I'll demonstrate an easy method to modeling a floral-style star ball, without any add-ons or plugins.  This is an addendum to my previous star ball tutorial, in which we used a tool that was very specific to 3dsmax.  The workflow presented in this example is universal to most 3d modeling techniques, and could easily translate to any capable polygon modeling package; like Maya, Modo, or Blender.  Hopefully you'll find this video fun and useful in some way, and maybe learn something interesting.  Please don't forget to subscribe to my channel for many more modeling tutorials.  Thank you, and enjoy.

Just wanted to say that I just found you through a group I just joined. Absolutely outstanding work, and it's particularly inspirational that you offer these excellent works for free.

Definite follow, here and on ShareCG.

Thank you very much!  I appreciate the compliment.  I'm releasing a new model very soon; perhaps this evening, or tomorrow.  I'm at the texturing phase now.  I also have tutorials on Youtube, if you're interested in modeling in Blender or 3dsmax.  Thanks again.
