    Hi and thank you. My daughter is dealing with some continual fallout from some birth conditions, daily care and numerous surgeries and doctor visits have left us with a hefty chunk of medical debt. She’s doing well but I figure every little bit helps. As tempting as it is to take you up on your...

    Hi everyone, the Hornet is complete and up for sale on Sketchfab. Just asking $25 to offset some of my daughter's medical costs. 8k textures for that bit of extra detail! https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/hornet-ceaeb0e9c121462d9cba571fe70ccf14

    Hi everyone, I got to liking the A model rapier so much I started thinking about incremental tech advancements rather than a whole new spaceframe for the C-G models, so I've envisioned that here and I'm really liking the results so far! I think the 'chunkiness' fits the WC-1-2 era much better...

    Screenrant Talks Wing Commander Remasters (February 12, 2021)

    I always get nervous when projects like this get mainstream attention. Usually a C & D isn't far behind. Hopefully the WC community has a better track record but with EA you never know.

    They provided me the Hornet concept model and asked for my take on it while we developed some technical ideas for implementation into CryEngine. I didn’t really contribute all that much, but it was fun!

    In 2011 I was lucky enough to leverage some of my Wing Commander fan art into a couple of lovely conversations with Chris Roberts regarding his new project. At the time it still wasn't clear whether or not it was going to be a new Wing Commander property or an entirely new thing, but I did my...

    Wing Commander has always been the perfect crossroads of Naval Aviation and Sci-Fi for me, probably why I love it so much. So, when working on this model of an early model of the the F7U-1 Cutlass, I was struck by how easily it could be turned into a Wing Commander ship! It's almost "Rocky...

    Re-kajiggering a lot of the old models, to optimize things and maybe make them a bit more realistic by relying more on texturing than all the overly-chunkified modeling I did to make them look better as 3d printed models. In many cases I'm having to re-model them from scratch, but thems are the...

    Re-worked the old Dralthi model, fewer UV islands, nicer geometry, and threw a new coat of paint on her in Substance. Really fun working with her again! Hope you like it!
