Ascendance of a Bookwork Myne

3dprinting painting airbrushing anime character wip

Here's a 3D model, print and paint of Myne from the anime 'Ascendance of a Bookworm'

I hadn't printed and painted an anime figurine for a while, so decided to give this one a try.

This is work-in-progress. I'll update as I get her painted!


Here's some work-in-progress shots of the painting. I'm currently smoothing everything out and getting a nice consistent look:

Who I am

I'm Blake and I like to tinker with things and make stuff. When I'm not programming or developing random systems, I'm playing with electronics, doodling bits of art, 3D modelling or sculpting and painting things or nerding out watching sci-fi or horror TV.

From 2001 I worked in the games industry, eventually specialising in tools to aid in the development of video games and their engines. In 2011 I left the industry and teamed up with a few other talented composers to utilise my knowledge to help build the company 'Spitfire Audio'.

I also periodically compose soundtracks for video-games and have worked on titles such as The Stanley Parable and Portal Knights. You've probably also heard my music in random TV commercials at some point.

I use various bits and bobs to craft my shiz.
