From India!

I've been working for Ubisoft in India for the last 5 months, it's been a fantastic experience and I have learned so much, not only from the studio but from the country.

I've got permission to upload my studio work once the game is released in September, but for now I'm trying to keep personal game art projects going after I get home each evening, heres what I've managed to get done:

Queen Victoria sculpture based on a copper statue in Liverpool. I created the high poly and retopologised in Zbrush. This took eight weeks(!) but I've been exploring a beautiful foreign country and working full time :)

This old woman was very beautiful, her face had so much life and her eyes were incredible. When I first saw her, I thought she was blind, but blue eyes are a rarity here. Tried to exaggerate the complimentary colour scheme

Speed paint from life, 1hour

I've been very inspired by Hindu deities, so this is the demon slaying goddess Kali. "Her sword is the destroyer of false consciousness and the eight bonds that bind us."

I also did some paintings and concepts of the Hindu God Rama. I've read two translations of the Ramayana story and made some interpretations of him. These are WIPs that I don't think I'll come back to, but they were fun :)

Just to finish up with some quick sketches - some of these were done at work while I was waiting for programs to load. I'm going to try to finish this large 3D project I'm working on now before I come back to England in March.

For my photography and other thoughts about this internship, please visit my personal and university blog at:


  1. what, you had an fmp blog all along and I didn't know :0 Anyway, good to see you're still staying productive with your personal work even with a full-time job, those sketches are really nice. Wouldn't expect any less of you :D
    I don't know how you cope working in a hot country, whenever England gets a warm sunny day I find it hard to stay indoors XD;

  2. Thanks Mary :D
    It's boiling now, but I'm wearing jeans most of the time so don't know how I'll cope with the English weather when I get back in two weeks - it's bad enough when you're used to it!

    Really looking forward to seeing you all again, yours and Sai's FMP looks promising :)
