"Earthworm Jim" from the game

Here's a paint of 'Earthworm Jim', a 3D model sculpted by Adam Chai.

Earthworm Jim

He has some amazing sculpts but I loved the look of this print when I saw it; I mean - it's Earthworm Jim!

The sculpt printed great and after some cleanup I decided to give it a primer and a paint. Here's some more pics:

A zenithal primer got me started (I chose my thicker white as it gives more grainy, spotty effect which I wanted to accentuate the retro effect with) and then I slapped down some thinned acrylics, some wash and a little light dry-brushing.

I feel like it came out great overall. I'd have liked to have spent a bit more time on cleanup, but I'm relatively happy with it. The blue is not quite the right colour, but I can live with it, and it looks fine in the right light.

If you like the print, be sure to check out Adam's Cults3D page as he has a lot of cool things!

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.
