This artwork was created using Poser, Photoshop and 3D Studio Max. It was part of a concept for a video game.

Basically it was an inovative imaginarry racing game that would mix elements of powered racing and extreme sports. To start with you would be pretty much free wheeling down hills with a wheel attached to each limb. (Local leagues and competitions.) As you progress you could purchase new parts and enter races of with different classifications. The pinacle would be an F1 style high powered, high adrenaline series of races. Focus would be strongly on racer characteristics and rivalries. Beating a rival should be almost as rewarding as winning a race.

I have always loved racing games but they generally just concentrate on faceless racing, there is rarely an actual aim rather than just winning against un named drones.

There’s an ape for that

This cool, posing fella was taken in Gibralta, Spain. Up at the top of Gib’ rock there is a large colony of barbary apes. They are curious and from what i could tell ‘mostly harmless’. The ape in the photograph was perched precariously on a railing above a sheer drop over the rock edge. Obviously not phased by this position or the fact i was shoving a camera in his face, he pulled his best ‘Magnum’ look for me.
