The following six images show some of my ‘space handpaintings’ that were created using the 3D painting app Blender. I used to export them as a video and let the visitor ‘fly’ through my little painted worlds. More recently I’ve tried exporting them as stereoscopic pairs to enable visitors to watch them in real 3D. These are the first results.

I learned Computer Animation at college and started my career working for the film industry in Los Angeles. I worked several big shows and then moved to New Zealand for for the Lord of Rings company, and worked on films such as King Kong, Avatar, Planet of Apes and more. I was in the lighting/rendering department to make computer generated images look real — to fit in with real photography.
Now I am a freelance artist and running a tutoring business. I spend a lot of time for making realistic images, but now I am more into illustration images. I use Blender software to create 3D illustrations. My style is simple, I believe empty space encourages people’s imaginations.
