Welcome to my personal blog about 3D Art and Online Marketing...

I am Christopher West. Husband, Father of two, marketing specialist and 3d Artist. This blog is focused around my hobby of 3d modelling, composing and rendering. Feel free to browse my gallery, visit my shop where most of the products are free, or drop me a line if you want to enquire about your own commissions. Originally from South Africa, I first got into 3D art back when doing tutorials on Maya I believe. I managed to make a realistic looking Orange. Life got in the way as they say and well I got blessed with a family. Several years later, and several thousand miles away, I got back into 3D art when a colleague mentioned that Daz Studios released the main software for free. I was hooked! Got into the modelling side of it two and managed to sell a model over at www.hivewire.com On this 3d art blog, I plan to release some renders as well as free 3d Models (and perhaps a few paid ones). If you are looking for a commission, drop me a line too and I will see what I can do for you.
