Boy oh boy have I let this place go!  Apologies to all who follow, I have been juggling too much stuff lately.  Some good, some bad and unfortunately this is one of the things that has taken a hit. I am hoping to start making regular posts again but will be moving address (more on that later).  Now for the exciting bit, we have in the past dabbled with the production of vinyl toys and the odd art print and for sometime now I have wanted to make it more of a focus.  And so… I have been spending many a twilight hour developing some new products and a wee shop front to sell them from.  It’s early days but there are a lot of exciting things in the pipeline.  Go check it out for yourself and let us know what you think.  It is called  Creaturefreak.co  and our new blog address is CreatureFreakingTumblr!!!

Enrolled myself on to a visualarium course with the awesome Danny Williams aka  www.pointpusher.com just to brush up my speed sculpting skills. So any free time this week has gone into to my first assignment. It was quite an open brief, to creature an interesting game character. Still work in progress but I thought I might as well share.

The simplified version which didn’t fly either. In the end  we had to  settle for something in between. Unfortunately the mixture of styles didn’t work half as well as the originals.  Designs by our regular concept artist DJ and colour by the awesome qstom .
