2021 Outstanding Poster Award
Original design for CRHEA

My Master internship was the last thing I expected to make props for (it was in a physics lab…). I had to design and build an award in a few hours for a conference in Cargèse (Corsica). The stand is a resin piece (from a mould I already had), and was cast with LEDs inside. They light up clear acrylic rods, which represent light rays. The central piece is a reference to optical metasurfaces, the topic of the conference.

Willhelm’s Scythe
Cris Tales

Dead Good Media asked me to recreate Willhelm’s scythe from Modus’ upcoming game Cris Tales. Given the length of the weapon, I made it so it could break down into three smaller sections, making transportation easier. The LEDs are powered by a cylindrical battery placed inside the pole, and rechargeable via USB. I was torn between keeping the game’s cartoon-like look and creating a more realistic, textured version. I ended up going for the latter. Particular care was dedicated to the paintjob. I combined airbrushing with more traditional hand painting techniques to make the scythe interesting under a close inspection.

I was also asked to edit short making-of videos for various social media platforms. I always enjoy producing this kind of content, since it shows the amount of work that went into a project.

Tennocon 2021 Cosplay Contest Trophy
Warframe (Digital Extremes)

Five resin trophies were commissioned by Digital Extremes for Tennocon 2021, an event revolving around their game Warframe. They were designed to reference the in-game items players get at certain milestones. These deluxe versions sport a gradient colour scheme and a special emblem, as well as custom-built stands complete with laser-engraved aluminium plaques. They were made from scratch using a variety of techniques, such as 3D modelling, foam work, resin casting, and hand painting. The trophies are Tennocon-exclusive items, and were won during the cosplay contest of the 2021 edition.
