The latest, and possibly greatest.


A carefully chosen selection of art which I admire.



So, seeing as the last journal on my page was still from the beginning of the year, I figured I had better bring things a bit more up to date.

This spring I've had the pleasure of working on two art trade projects, and am quite happy with both the experience I got from my own work on them and the beautiful pieces which I received in return.

The first trade was done with :icondaroneasa:, for which I worked with her to produce three concept weapons for use by her original alien species.
The first is a light automatic infantry rifle, designed for large scale production and reliable operation in the field.

The second is a doubled barreled caplock action muzzle loaded pistol, designed with more of a handcrafted aesthetic.

The third is an advanced particle burst weapon, designed as a prototype weapon using more experimental technology.

I had a great time working on all three, and enjoyed the challenge of designing weapons for a unique alien physiology.
In return I received this amazing rendition of a character from my own canon, Dauros Venn:

I also received this sketch, done during one of her livestreams of another character of mine, Jacken Rihan:
WIP - Jacken by Daroneasa

I also did a second trade more recently with :iconpraxcrown5:, for which I designed a modular weapon system for use by police forces.
The weapons are designed to fire less-lethal ammunition, and use a universal grip and trigger group with modular receivers to convert between a heavy pistol and light rifle platform.

In return, I received this piece, which features both of my above characters, and features some amazing traditional art on the characters.

I greatly enjoyed trading with both people, and would love to undertake more trades in the future. If any other artists might be interested in a trade, don't hesitate to contact me. I enjoy working with novel concepts and designing new ones, and am always eager to receive art in forms which I don't work in.

I have also set up a Sketchfab account during this spring, and have started uploading work in progress models, several finished models, and other unreleased bits there.

Besides all that, I've also set up a personal IRC channel on the Freenode network at ##Talon-Corp. If you'd like to connect with me directly I'm always open for questions and discussion.

That's all I've got for now. I'm still very much alive and active, and more models will turn up when they're done (or at least presentable.) I may even get around to posting another journal before new years 2015 rolls around.

I am an amateur 3D designer, weapons and technology engineering enthusiast, avid science-fiction media consumer and aspiring author.
I consider myself to be both a hobbyist and student in 3D design and modeling, as it is both a passion and a field in which my skills are constantly growing and improving.
Because of the student aspect of my 3D work, I highly value critique and constructive criticism on any aspect of my creations, so please don't hesitate to comment if you have a question or see something that you think could be improved.
