Hongkong


Hongkong a lovely city.

I love the double-decker trams. I love the walled city look. I love the sounds, smell and food. I love the chaos. I love the relaxation. I love Hongkong.

It has been a long time ago since I visited Hongkong for the last time, so I have to use my imagination.

I made this image using Blender mostly.

Young Rebel

This is a work in progress. I’m planning to finish this image somewhat different. No Star Wars for one. But the Star Wars bug got me. So I added the stormtrooper (thx JJ Palomo) and the rebel logo and called it finished.

The original plan is inspired by ArtStation. I really love the 2d concept art images on this site. I wanted to make concept art too but with 3d , because I can’t draw or paint well. So my initial drive was to make a fast build, sculpted and textured image. I failed. Most meshes are build extremely fast, but then I got caught up in details.

I’m learning Blender and by taking on a whole project is often times the best way; lather, rinse, repeat. I had to go back to 3ds Max a few times, but found it difficult to find my way around. Some other external programs were used. Blender is getting there but there are a few specialized programs, better suited for some stuff, out there. There are so many tutorials on how to do Blender that I can’t even start to thank all the makers, but thank you all.

3d Street


I know you might be tired of 3d after watching all those 3d movies in cinema lately, but get your red/green glasses and have a look anyway

p.s. the driver is getting a soda from a shop in the alley on the left 😉

Moving cart


A moving cart you see often in Hong Kong. A prop for my HK animation.

Chinese Poster


I wanted to see how the taxi would fit in the scene. Ended up with this pleasing image.

Taxi from Hong Kong


I’m still working on my Honk Kong modern fairy tale. It is a slow progress because I started working in high detail.. bad mistake 😉

Double Decker Tram

Wireframe Tram

I’m now working on a double decker tram. When finished it will be a backdrop in my Honk Kong street.

A test render to see how the clothes I recently made, fit in the scene. I might have to upscale them a little.
