Thowas Pygmy Cow

This creature lives hidden in the deep forests of a distant planet named Thowas. Since she is a herbivore her only means to defend herself against attacking predators is to inflate her back body, hence exposing poisonous spots and making her appear bigger. She also splays her nostrils and ears thus showing off the brightly colored insides - pretending to be the scary mouth opening of a very dangerous animal...

Robot Concepts

Back again with some work I did throughout the year so far. This one is the first of a series of robots and other concepts I developed for an add agency. It was briefed to be a service robot in a "near future" maintenance setting.

This was the one the client chose. I started it as a rough model in Maya and sketched on top.

Above is the finished model with no textures yet.

a hidden place - WIP

A preview version of how the final animation may look like. I did not like this table, so I made a different one which I still have to render. Also I want to incorporate some animated effects like a flickering candle flame, moving shadows and things like that.

To keep up my hardsurface modeling skills I started this project for an interior scene. It belongs to a well known unknown person from the late 1900s, who lived in a now also famous district in London... I will give some more clues during texturing. I am done with modeling now and these are renderings with ambient occlusion and wireframe.
