Harry Potter fan?
It is one of my obsessions... ;-)

ohhh are those Reese Cups too?
Sooooo many Reese cups! :):sick::whistling:

I like those skull nailpolish bottles.
Sometimes HotTopic has the things I NEED. ROFL

I couldn't stand the monitor so far away tho, I'd never see it :p
Yeah, I'm not a fan of this desk. I'm hoping to make some changes to my workspace soon.

LOL yep ;) The only reason my desk is not in a like state is the fact it got dismantled and remade not so long age and all the odds and ends have yet to migrate back
Hopefully I'll be able to do the same. ;-)

If I can find a working camera I'll get a pic of my new work space. It is soooo nice having a partner who is not only good at making stuff but gets the whole 3D thing even if most of it is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over his head lol

I'm sure there's a jar of Vegemite hidden in amongst that lot somewhere :geek:
Can't say as there is. Vegemite is hard to come by 'round here. Wouldn't mind if I came by some, though. Stuff is the real black gold. ;-)

Yeah I am lucky, Sam is constantly but gently pushing me to push my self in what I can do and if making me a new desk makes it easier to work on stuff he'll happily spend his days off working on it for me :) Plus he is stating to dip his toes into the 3D waters lol

That's great, Dreamer! It's always nice to have people around you who know what you're talking about. Plus, you can "teach" him, by getting him to do all the tedious stuff for you. Wax on; wax off, Grasshopper! LOL

You know how they say programmers are just machines for converting pizza to code? Well, I'm a modeller, and I convert candy, action figures, and 90s music into digital characters! Or maybe someone should call for help.

Free cookie to anyone who can identify all the weird stuff... ;-)

My desk is nowhere near as cluttered but you should see the rest of the room:rolleyes:.

Great to have some one so supportive. My wife has no idea what I do in the the sense of building a scene but when it comes to my renders she has a keen eye and knows what she likes and why.

I got burnout on the horse characters, and started playing in ZBrush at random. It turns out, I wanted to model some tack for Harry. My inspiration came from some reference images @carmen indorato posted previously and one of the action figures sitting on my desk, lol! No idea when/if I'll finish it, but I thought I'd share. ;-)

Oh please finish it!

Just a little thing before you get too into it. The saddle looks a little too far back.

Yeah, the saddle and pelt are both really rough sketches. I kept sculpting, resculpting, and deleting the saddle, mostly because I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it before I settled on the "basically nothing" type of saddle. Still not happy with it, and will probably scrap it again before it's over. But to your point, I agree that it isn't sitting in quite the right spot. Plus it needs something for those straps to be attached to. ;-)

I want to add feet to the pelt like it has in the reference image carmen posted, too.

I wish the wings were out so I could see where they land, it actually might be in the right spot if the wings were in the way of a normal saddle. buuuuttttt the strap in front of the strap would be in the way :p

Looks good dear. Which image I posted got to you? Create it like you saw it.....make it easy.
Though it looks cool I would love to see the pelt completed and the straps though I love greatLy, couLed be reset fewer in numbers and as a rope or cord with feathers and bits of bone and beads hanging from it pelt a bit wider as the only "saddle" with a more primative bridle of knotted rope and it make a lovely barbarian native horse tac.

Though the straps look attached to me except that rear one which can be attached with a big ring, attach the straps with rings and leather loops fastened with buckles to the saddle or even the pelt. Stretch the areas of the pelt and apply the straps that way so the straps look like they hold the pelt in place. I can see thick lion or wolf pelt there with animal teeth hanging in decoration in various places as well as included paws. Also see the horse as a smaller stockier breed furry pelted and long maned and tailed Mongolian breed (saw the documentary "EAGLE HUNTRESS" of the first young girl/woman to ever become an eagle huntress of her people in modern Mongolia, where women are supposed to be kept at home doing their prescribed duties instead of riding around o a horse with a 15 to 20 pound beautiful GoAlden Eagle on their arms hunting fox) and it made me think again about wanting one of there older pony/horse breeds, which seemed decked out the same way. In fact making a whole a set for Harry, Dawn, Dusk and Luna as a family of native Kasaks surrounded with their native wares and stylistic nomadic home would be a great Bundle to market!
Sorry my brain is bleeding and still in bed at 12:07 AM no coffee trying to get my fingers to work on this damn iPad....GOD I HATE TYPING !!!!!!!!!!
