All of my favourites are there because ive hand picked them for future reference or inspiration. Im always on the look out for 'characters' and pictures that incite emotion, or depict a persona that will help me on my journey!

How much would you pay for a fully painted, limited edition, 12" collectible original female character figurine sculpted by me?

Just writing this up here to let you guys know that Paul :iconzeronis: and myself are working through all the details now.

EDIT! I have created a new thread which will be a good place to see all the art both 2d and 3d for the project and production details all in the one place at Polycount!…

What we know for certain so far is the following:

She is going to be 9" from head to toe! or 1/8th scale.
We will have 25 Grey Resin copies available.
We will have 25 hand painted copies available.

We are finalizing the costs to produce, package and ship these out worldwide and will hopefully have those details ASAP. Once we have those we will have our prices and work on setting up a good place for everyone to order them!

If you are wondering what figure I am talking about - you can download a fully interactive 360 turntable of the figure here: (You can click and drag from side to side to see her from all angles)

Edit 1: Updated to new higher res / higher quality spin 360!…

The grey resin copies will look something like what you see right there, I will update this journal with a higher quality version and also a painted version as soon as I get that finished!

I hope you guys stay tuned for more details as we get them!

  • Listening to: Drum and Bass of course
  • Watching: Walk Dead Season 5

I'm just some random dude that likes to make characters for games!

Some of the games/projects I'm working on or have worked on include:

League of Legends.
Tom Clancy's The Division.
Kingdom Death.


What programs do you use to make your characters?

Zbrush, 3DSMax 2012, Maya 2012, Photoshop CS5 Extended, 3dcoat, Xoliul Shader, Keyshot.

What do you do for a day job ?

I'm a freelance Character artist for Videogames, Tabletop Miniatures, and Collectible Figurines!

How long have you been working in the games industry?

Almost 11 years now! Holy crap.

How many games have you worked on?

Gosh, more than 10 now I think - the most notable ones are Rift & Rift Storm Legion & Section 8. 2 failed AAA projects, Edge of Twilight and Stargate SG1, and then numerous handheld indy style games and small mmo's. I'm only including games I actually got paid to work on, if we count all the super indy stuff that I did with friends etc - man that number would be scary, probably like 25 - 30.

How long does it take you to make a character?

Depends on the character and the spec, but for something like Chun Li and working full time about 10-15 days give or take ?

Do you take commisions?

I'm always interested in projects and ideas - note me!

Are you going to be making tutorials?

Teaching is a very important thing, and as a student I would expect only the best master - so I dont think I'm ready. Too unrefined and organic in my processes etc, and I would hate to be guiding you down the wrong path.

Horde or Alliance?

For the Horde!!!!!

Why so many girls in your folio?

Girls are the best. ( See my recent journal for long answer )

Where are you from?

I was born in New Zealand - Land of the Hobbit, My mom is a native Maori from New Zealand and my Dad is from Canada! What a weird mix!

How did you get your start in the Games Industry?

I simply vanished off the face of the planet, stayed with my parents, worked crappy jobs and taught myself how to make game art at night, posted my work online consistantly - and continued to do this until I got good enough to get my first job :)
