Predator Dog

The 'Art of The Predator' book arrived today, sadly most of the work i was hoping to show was cut from the film. A couple of the Predator Dog images i did were included though, here is one.

I originally worked on the project to design a lot of new alien ideas, the Predator Dog was the last task i worked on. Bryan Wynia and the ADI guys had already done most of the development on the design and i was asked to figure out color/skin patterns/dredds and some refinement/exploration in a few different directions. I wasn't given the model the other guys made at the time so this was sculpted from a sphere in Zbrush based on the earlier work Bryan/ADI had done.

METAL GEAR SOLID (film)
A calmer/moody alternate version of the last Snake vs. Rex shot i did for the MGS film. More of the moment when Snake first comes across Metal Gear Rex in the hanger, cold breath and socom in hand.
Some background music to set the tone :D: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XViugv…

METAL GEAR SOLID (film)

MILITARY PACK 1:
gum.co/military1

Experiment number 2, i expect more people are interested in detailed military stuff, i have also amassed a huge volume of military vehicles and weapon photos that i have taken myself over the years, this pack has mainly photos/detailed shots (105 total) of the Apache helicopter of various parts not normally seen or things i had trouble finding on the net myself for jobs (or things i never knew existed!), a lot of this ref is stuff i use still and have gotten a lot of mileage out of for freelance work. I also included some detailed shots of some of the other mobile missile platforms at the show that should be some nice reference or photobash material. All photos were taken with a canon 6D and are RAW and uncompressed around 5,500 pixels wide.

The military packs will be a bit higher priced mainly because it is hard to find photos of this stuff in such high detail and more importantly even harder to legitimately obtain copyright free versions of it for commercial use. Enjoy and have fun!

Mattepainting pack 1:

So with that here is a first pack of reference photos (213 total) that could be useful for any environmental artists, matte-painters etc to use for personal or professional use after purchase. All images are shot with my Canon 6D and are RAW uncompressed files around 5,500 pixels wide so should be really nice and high res for any use. Enjoy and have fun! Look forward to see what you come up with.
