Hi All,
Thanks Again for all the support I have received from everyone at DA. It's been about a year since I have updated my website and deviant account but herer is what I've been up to !. As of September 2010 I have been with Pixomondo Visual Effects. I started as a pre-vis modeler where I worked on the end sequence for Super8 and Journey to the Center of the Earth2. I was so happy to finally be working in film and pre_vis was a good way to get experience  on how a production environment works.  I suppose they were impressed enough with my work that John Perenteau ( The Head Honcho at pixomondo, and maybe the most awesome person I have ever worked for) Asked me If I wanted to get involved in a television show with Dinosaurs called Terra Nova. My reply" What are you f$@#ing  serious!, Hell Yeah!!! I have been studying dinosaurs since I was a child.  Neville Page had done  the concept sculpts for the Carnataurus, Brach , and the slasher and I went over the pieces and detailed the crap out of them. I takes a while to get a sculpt ready for animation. Kevin Blank ( VFX Supervisor on Terra Nova) Loved the work I did enough that I was allowed to design the Dnos for the rest of the show and be The Senior Modeler supervisor at Pxomondo. I also got to work on the opening sequence for The Green Lantern and small bit on Hugo. Also bee on the lookout for season 2 of Game of Thrones ( I did something for that but its still top secret!) . All in All What a year its been. I got to work with my idol and now friend Jack Horner ( the worlds preeminent Paleontologist) and lived out a fantasy I've had my whole life.

Sorry to all who have been inquiring about statues and stuff but I am not making collectibles right now. Maybe I'll do it again but film is my real passion.

In the next few weeks I hope to post up some of my film projects, I ll talk more after I post pics (If anyone really cares)

Till Then Happy New Year!
Dan

Hello Deviants,
WOW another DD! Awesome! I am a bit surprised being as the Mcfarlane Dragon was done about 5 years Ago, but whatever, I am honored. It's great timing for me as I am releasing my own line of dragon statues through ARH studios.  I am sculpting/ designing  the Dragons  in the computer now instead of using traditional methods as in the past. I feel the end result will look better than what can  be accomplished using castelene. Please check it out in my gallery for pics of this piece. Also If you get the chance check out the statueforum.com   There you can get more info  about the sale of the dragon as well as checking out other works currently in production. please follow the link here

  The angel of Death production info and wips can be found here

  please drop some comments on the forum. Arahom the president of ARH and I would love to hear any comments, crits, and suggestions. I am totally open to requests, so if there is anything you desire but has not been made yet please let me know.
Thanks Again for the DD! and keep watching.  The best is yet to come,
Best Wishes,
Dan
