About Us

Hey everyone,

I’m Rich Darby-Jones founder of 3D thunder. The site in its many forms has been around since 2006, initially started as a way for me to show some 3D work off and host some tutorials. At the time I was a Lightwave 3D user and this is what I show in most of the tutorials to-date. Approx 4 years ago I moved to using Modo which has been my go to software, although I dabble in Zbrush from time to time. I started 3D as a hobby back in 2002 (I think) and that is what it is today, although I have less time to spend on 3D as I am now into Photography.

Like many 3D artists I have a story I’d like to tell in 3D, I have the story line / dialogue done, ok it’ll get a little tweek here and there. I just need to set about the job at hand; that is model / texture / voice / animate / render / audio / composite and post process.

So if anyone has anything to ask be-it 3D, photography or something else I can help with use the contact me page and I will get back to you.
