Designed to reflect light of all kinds, this mirrored film satellite is lightweight, cheap to build, and low maintenance. The three point tension film produces a flat surface. The control section sports three direct drive gyros for reactionless attitude control.
This satellite can be used to reflect sunlight for power generation, illumination, or for shading other objects. Other applications include laser cornering, telescope clouds, and solar furnace arrays. The design is scalable, though larger units will be more difficult to steer, and will tend to warp under light pressure.

It's a big spaceship... not as cool as some. This one was inspired by a moth, but I got lazy.
caution-ninjasI know, overdone theme...
But you can never be too careful when Ninjas are around!
uselessA solid ice frying pan
I can't see a solid ice frying pan being very useful. Thankfully it has a stainless steel handle. Perhaps it could be used for beating whoever invented it.
Created for the Blenderartists.org weekend challenge.
SDASSA blender model of an SDASS shotgun.
A blender model of a FABARM SDASS Tactical shotgun. I made this from scratch when I failed to find any good models. It was made from a single picture I found online, so it's not exactly technically accurate. Download the model at http://www.peripheralarbor.com/Shotgun_SDASS.blend
I had an idea kicking around in my mind for a while. It didn't really look like this, but this is how it turned out. I think I may start over later, but this turned out okay in the mean time.
It feels like something is missing, like it's not quite complete yet. Probably the lack of details. The original concept was more of a feeling than a picture anyway.
MfgRbtThe robot I desgined
This is a picture of the robot I designed and built at work.
No, actually not. I took some pictures, but my boss told me not to post them on the internet because then our competition might glean critical manufacturing secrets, undermine our business, and put us all out of a job. Somehow I doubt that the robot is all that important, but he's my boss...
Anyhow, the robot in this picture has almost no correspondence to the one I actually made. Some of the parts are the same. Some of the parts are very different.

This is a picture I made for a computer programming project that one of my friends was working on. It is unusually cutesy, but I was surprised at how easy the style was to capture. I kind of like it... very bright and happy, though the contrast in the shadows is prhaps a bit too high.
RedMagicGoblins art re-purposing
Thunt, the author of the webcomic Goblins, posted the red glowy magic parts from this panel on the Goblins forum, challenging the community to do something fun with it.
I've been unable to find the original thread (perhaps subsumed by net-rot), but here's my contribution.

Cistern StairsMasonry Spiral Stairs
Was playing around with curved masonry again. The spiral stairs by themselves weren't very interesting, so I added some water and hard water buildup.
Mountaintop CastleCastle Concept model
Based on some concept art whose origin has been lost. I made the model.
