This is the Snowcrawler Mark 2. I created the first one for a story I was writing called "Arctic Adventures of the Snow Team".

SPACE 3102: ACE's Void is my very own large-scale game project. I aim to bring the world of the M40 X pro A.C.E into the open.
SPACE, the final frontier... well, in our world space has just become a huge desert in a world of opportunity, a minor obstacle and a huge distance to travel for a vacation. In this world there are most things we have on our planet, gang fights, large companies who seek to gain as much control as possible. There is also a war on, in sector H-04 a new race of aliens (called Ractas) has just claimed it as their own territory and as if there is not enough universe for everyone, the humans had to start a war. As it is now, there are 3 intelligent races in the universe: Kohlar, Ractas and Human.

(only 2 will feature in the game, Human and Kohlar). Humanity started first with space exploration. They found the first habitable planets and are also the most powerful. There are 3 large human worlds: Earth, Alexandria and Theogonia.

You might wonder what I do when I'm not modeling. Usually, what I do is nothing, I watch movies, tv series etc. and have a general good time... ...for about 3 or 4 days in a row. During these days I do nothing but watch movies, tv series, etc. After a few days I get bored and I start modeling again, thus, I a perfect circle of entertainment.
I bought a nice "all in one" printer today, a 9600dpi Canon MP550. It has a scanner, photoprinter, five single ink slots, 2.0" TFT display and memory card slots for cameras and stuff.
I got the idea of buying one when I was working on a model this morning, I was drawing a simple sketch of my model on paper so I could experiment a little with the design before modeling it, then I suddenly realized that it would be a lot easier if I could just print out a picture of my unfinished model and sketch on that instead, then I wouldn't have to draw the whole thing. Luckily the local store had a sale and I got this one for a bargain. I'm very happy with it.
By the way, I've continued again on my dino/skeleton, now, it's a dragon. Yes, I'm really surprised by the sudden change of theme myself but it just seemed to move in that direction.
I've just started working on a project with iQew (Kjell Bunjes) who also made the concept for the Powerplant. The idea is to create and share ideas and also work on a single level of a game. The game we have chosen is Cube 2 Sauerbraten since I know the game and can implement my models. There is still a possibility that we might use the Source engine instead but since I haven't got HalfLife 2 or any other game from the Orange Box, we will use Cube for now.
Here is some work I've have done so far:
Now iQew will just have to make a concept for a map and I'll start working on that. Since I've got some experience working with Cube 2, I hope we will get that part done quickly.
I still have atleast two different projects to finish, 1. the animation and 2. the skeleton. I just hope I can find the time.
