August is here and it is hot.

The heat has been pretty bad and limited my modelling mojo in between though I have started working on a new model shown below.

The last couple of months have been spent transitioning over from Blender to Modo which I am now using full-time. I will keep Blender around but I don’t think I will be going back to it full-time.

Firebot interactive model online

After exporting the model and textures for use in Marmoset Toolbag I thought I would see how it looked in a browser 3d player.

New 3d website

I have managed to acquire the domain name markbtomlinson.com which fits in with the handle I use on the web @MarkBTomlinson and so should help finding me easier.

As a consequence of this acquisition I have decided to moved and consolidate all my CG 3D work over on the new website which is called  Mark B Tomlinson

All new work and projects I add related to my 3D work and portfolio will be put on Mark B Tomlinson and this site will revert to its old role as my personal 3D, photography and tech blog.

Mark B Tomlinson will be for work and promotion.
