Between starting the podcast, building iOS Sticker Packs, publishing an app, plus a myriad of other projects, it's been a while since I've done any 3D modelling. Early last week I heard of the March of Robots sketch challenge where you create a new robot themed sketch every day of the month of March. Needless to say that I missed that, but I did like a few of the designs that the organiser DaCosta Bayley drew. So I chose one and started modelling it and 3 late nights later, the robot was done!
Below is the orginal concept image by DaCosta:
As a creator, sometimes there isn't anything scarier than a blank page. Once you get past that blank page hurdle, you build up momentum and get into the grove, the creative juices start to flow, and you're well on your way to creating the worlds next artistic masterpiece.
But lets get back to that blank page. Where you're stuck staring at your old friend, the blank page, that you know all too well. Waiting for inspiration to strike! That's where my new app comes in, Concept Kickoff! It's a simple little utility app that generates a list of random attributes to use when developing concept characters and help get you started. Heck, you might hate all the attributes that come up, but that may just be the kickoff you need to get the mind racing and get you past that blank page of despair.
Simply tap the play button, the random attributes are displayed, and your are off and racing!

In today’s episode I have a chat with Daniel Knight, the director of TrollBridge, the epic Sir Terry Pratchett Discworld based fan film. We discuss the films history, it’s challenges, progress, all things Troll Bridge. I was genuinely surprised at how long the production leaders have been working on the film. Their dedication to the film is truly amazing.
Be sure to checkout TrollBridge.film to learn more the project and to put some visuals to what we were discussing. And thanks for listening.
TROLL BRIDGE is a cinematic DISCWORLD adaptation of the short story by Terry Pratchett.
