After Samuel made a surprise appearance at Arkane Austin, we thought it would be nice to get to know James and his craft a little more.

Read on to learn about James, digital artwork, and his love for Dishonored.

First things first, how are you doing today?

I’m writing this on a really lazy Sunday evening, so I’m doing good.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Sculpting, this is my hobby. Books (I’m in the middle of Phillip K Dick’s ’The Man in the High Tower’) and swimming.

Your work is incredible! How did you get in to digital sculpting?

Thanks! I first started looking into sculpting a couple of years ago now, I have a traditional arts degree but I’d become slightly jaded with drawing and wanted to try something different. I got hold of a copy of Zbrush and haven’t look back since!

What’s the hardest part of the process in completing a sculpt to your quality?

The thing I personally struggle the most with is knowing when to stop, call it a day and move on with a particular piece. I’m quite a perfectionist and I always want to best the last thing I’ve done, although I know from past experience that this won’t happen most of the time.

Bethesda TwitchWorks: It’s HALLOWEEN

HalloweenTwitch

Tomorrow we’re getting getting into the spirit (and perhaps costumes, too) for a Halloween edition of Bethesda Twitchworks — with plenty of tricks and treats (read: cool swag) to give away!

To kick off our Halloween party, we’ll start by mingling with vampires and werewolves in Skyrim’s first add-on, Dawnguard. Moving on from that, we will hobnob in Dishonored with the most prestigious resident of Dunwall at the annual masquerade party held at the Boyle Mansion.

We descend from elegance to grotesque as we check on our favorite ghouls residing in the Capital Wasteland’s Dunwich Building & and the blood-covered bosses from The Evil Within.

Tune in for our spooktacular Halloween feature this Friday (10/31) at 4pm EDT on Twitch.TV/Bethesda.
