Textures and Techniques

These aren't personal stuff - they're (edited) assignments last semester for a particular class.

This one was to create icons representing toys:

This one was a hypothetical illustration for an article on the Bata Shoe Museum:

This one was just an experimentation with photoshop:

Velociraptor Aliens

In the running for the award "Coolest thing I ever designed".

I made a background for this in Photoshop with some textures I had, but it screwed up the colours massively, so everybody looses. But then, I thought the background was a little distracting anyway, so maybe it's for the best. Here's the other version.

Fizzgizet Fighters

The Fizzgizet Fighters are my pet super-team. From left to right: Metafiction, Nameless, Cake, Quote and Mouse. I've had designs for these guys for ages, but I went over and redesigned a bunch of them. Mouse is practically the same, as is Quote. Metafiction has a slightly different look, Nameless has a different costume and Cake was completely redesigned from scratch. See also: My deviantART.

Project Rooftop is something I've been keeping an eye on for ages. When "Canary on the Catwalk" was announced, I pulled up my sleeves and decided to submit an entry.

In my pencil sketches, I also had a cute motorcycle helmet and a behind view, which I kinda wish I had added into the entry. Oh well!
