I have entered a comptition on CGTrader, which was to create VR watercraft. The comptition was open to everthing a long as it floats on water and the poly for the model was capped at 50k.
My watercraft I have created a ship, which was inspired by Black Pearl from the Pirates Of The Caribbean. I have always created something small but this compition has allowed me to create something big.
UnfortunatlyI did not win the comptation but it has helped me to

This was a game from Mad About Games Studios Ltd., Colonial Defence Force Starfighter. CDF Starfighter is a 90s-styled space combat simulator. The main inspiration of this game was ‘Freespace, Star Wars, Wing Commander and various sci-fi TV series such as Babylon 5, BSG, and Space: Above and Beyond.’ (Mad About Games Studios Ltd., website, 2016)
The full game is played out in first person mode from the start of the missions. Game was very immersive as it felt like I was in the spaceship. It was very fun but personally struggled with the controller, as I couldn’t see it when I had my headset on. Thus, taking away the immersive feeling. But the headset tracked the positioning of my head very well.
I had a chance to discuss with the developer Shaun Williams about the future of this product. We also discussed about how the models were created and got some feedback on how to get into the gaming industry. He also gave some useful tips on showreel.
He modelled all the assets for his game, they are very detailed.
PC designs are evolving as the VR develops. Here is an amazing design from XMG which is a backpack PC design The Walker. There are many similar designs from HP and MSI available, but they are not accessible to the consumers yet. (Osborne, website, 2016)
XMG is a German custom PC builder which is owned by Schenker, this is their first VR backpack available to the consumers in Europe. But the only drawback is the price ‘£4,040’. (VR & AR world, [visit], 2016)
This was an amazing experience, the HTC Vive worked flawlessly. I was immersed into the shooter game, that was on demo to play. The control worked without any blemish, it felt like I was holding a real gun on my hand. I was able to get the controller close and look through the guns aim sight. This was different to when I played the Colonial Defence Force Starfighter, as in this game I was able to see the controller as a gun, which was much more immersive.
This can be the next step in gaming industry.

Working with clients
I have worked with a lot of different clients for design work. I specialise logo design. Some logos are turned into 3D.
Le VIP is a concierge company for the people who has less time on their hand. My clients clients include e.g. directors, CEO's, company chairman. So we me/client came up with the the time idea. People that uses this service they have everything in this world but don't have time, this is why many of them buy watches e.g. Rolex. They think they are buying time, so I had to show that use Le VIP and save time. The logo needs to be creative, luxurious, classy.
Here's a business card mock up that I created for my client. The card will be in suede material and the logo will be printed in gold foil.
Here are the business card that I created which is ready to be printed.

Here are a few drawing that I did before making the logo to get some unique ideas.
