Fork Mosquito

I project started as a sketch on my sketchbook like two years ago. I modeled this almost completely back then but wasn't talented enough to complete it the way I wanted so I dropped it. I forgot about it for a long time but when I was browsing my old .blend files I found it and decided to resurrect it with my current skillset.

Blender with a little help of TopMod and rendered in Blender Internal. Composited and color corrected in Photoshop.

I have newer stuff too but this is my all time favorite so far and thus decided to make my introduction with it.

I also have a new short film coming up very soon! It's now in post production. Follow me on twitter to keep posted.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    I loved the image. I thought mosquito as an organic project by say Chas Darwin and then forked (as in computer program) into a mechanical. Couldn't help my disappointment when I noticed the literal fork (eating item) tail. Sorry for my expectations, they don't diminish your skills.
