To the stars - This piece was meant to be entered in the Secret agent competition at cg society. but it didn't get finished in time unfortunately.

Last spring I visited Norway and went fishing there, the views and scenery really inspired me when I created this semi futuristic scene. The vehicle is called a Triair and it's a part of the naval and/ or aerial defence. A sort of light and swift coastal scout.

Simple mesh in Maya then a couple of days of on and off fiddling and detailing in Photoshop.
Pathbreacher
Malacoda's beast - This is a sculpting of one of Malacodas underlings from Dantes inferno (the divine comedy). The setting is quite poor atm but I might switch it up a bit when I get the time. Hope you like it!
Beach assault - The Pathbreacher is a big ol' hunk of plates and metal, meant to breach the way for other, more advanced machinery. Here it's in the middle of some sort of an invasion, lots of blue and red, good and evil light and dark. Hope you like it!
