My Bio
I'm an amateur 3D modeler currently producing work for BuNine, a consulting group that works closely with David Weber to produce artwork and technical, historical, political, and organizational background for his Honorverse series of books. I'm mostly self-taught in Blender, and can't use paint software at all, so none of my models have textures in the 3D modeling sense of the term. The models can be considered as close to canon as possible, since we get direct feedback on the design from Weber himself. However, some changes are inevitable, and sometimes necessary, and while these are more or less "finished", they should also be thought of as works in progress still.

Wow! Your works are amazing!

I love Honor Harrington series, I'm very glad I found you! This is very inspiring.

I do hope that one day we will be able to build ships like that...

Good luck on all your projects!

Nice gallery of Honorverse stuff!

Keep it up, man!

Just watched the YT videos. Nice.

(Wait, what? No dramatically overproduced sound effects?) ;)

Low budget combined with laziness (and wanting to get the pinnace/Fearless flyaround video posted before I left for Honorcon in 2013) prevented me from doing that <grin> Not to mention 3 full months of 24/7 rendering and I was ready for it to be DONE and posted.

That is truly awesome work! Thank you very much for sharing and for all your work with BuNine! I just startet reading it all over again and ... this is pretty helpful.
