Been racing a bit of F Class in multiplayer lately. Surprisely its a lot more competive than say A class with it being a lot more difficult to tune up a competive car. I must say though its much more of a challenge and you really have to drive the wheels off your car to get a podium place. The down side though is that its definitely not what you'd call a friendly class with quite a lot of abuse flying, complaints happening and then there's also a large selection of rammers, however, if you can find a good lobby with some like minded drivers then its an awesome experience. I was lucky enough to race with some good people last nite.

Raced together a quick entry for the Humberto Ramos Fairy Quest contest on sketchoholic.com.
Was a bit of a rush as i had very little time on this last nite. Definitely going to make an effort to find these contests a bit earlier.

Have just finished up a project for a fixed gear bicycle crew over in Hawaii.
Was a cool job to work on as it was requested to be done in my own illustration style, which is something I don't often get to do: normally being asked to emulate or base the work on a pre-existing style, brand etc.
Had a lot of fun with this job and am pretty happy with the finished result!

Have decided to learn Zbrush to build my skill sets and try something different. Have to say it has to be one of the best supported products when you see the number and level of tutorials that are available from the Pixelogic website.
Am only in the really early stages and don't really know what I'm doing yet, but I just did my first bit of mucking around with the program. Hence my kinda madball inspired creation. Nothing really flash, but its a start!

Ahh that Forza love is coming back!!!
Started work on the Skullboyz/Sk1llboyz (nice suggestion Scotty!) livery last nite. Man, that livery editor requires some serious patience some times!Its an awesome tool tho, and amazing that a game lets you do this sort of thing. Props to Turn 10!
Also debuted my new Redfrog S5 last nite and had some pretty cool racing. Have the car set up with a nice balance of speed and grip. Definitely not as fast as some of the other S5s out there but shes superb through the corners!

This is a character design i was working on last nite. Sort of a tragic white boy rapper who thinks he's black. Was planning to turn this character into a Forza livery as a kind of humorous drift racing team called Skullboyz.

Party Animals is the latest product I have worked on at Moose and its released recently at retail here in Australia.
Couldn't resist the urge to photograph a few of the little costumed bears in-situ at the zoo. I gotta admit tho it was almost impossible to get a shot with an actual animal due to my sub par photographic skills :)

Surprisingly, with my computer hiatus there has also been a long gap since i was last on xbox live as well. Its been pretty crazy at work of late so I can only put it down to tiredness.
Anyway, after such a long break it was great to fire up the box and take Forza 3 for a spin last nite. Its an understatement to say I felt a little rusty.
I was however stoked to check on my storefront and check out the download popularity of some of my liveries! The Redfrog livery for the Murciellago LP640 was the 11th most downloaded custom, and my 2010 Audi S4 Redfrog livery was the most downloaded livery! Needless to say I was pretty chuffed and just wanted to say a big thankyou to all those who downloaded them. Hope you are enjoying them!
Wow, after six weeks of stuffing around my new computer has finally arrived. This mean a few more home projects and a lot more posting!
