Some art from the past, and a leap into the future?

So, I was thinking about creating an art pack of generic models people can use for various (games) projects , mainly as better looking placeholders. I need to get back into art as well, so I figured this would be a good way to get back on that track. Some people asked to see some past work, and it comes up occasionally, so...time to post my past works! Most look horrid, or aren't well polished, but oh well:

Probably my first project...or second; it was back in 2004:
Vector Man!

On the Red vs. Blue forums back around 2004, they had a few painting competitions where they would hand out a line art picture and contestants would paint over it; best painting won. This was the only entry i ever made:
Master Chief

This was my first full scene I completed. It's snoopy and woodstock, but I never really finished it...but the snoopy model was just horribly made so I just decided to move on:
The Scene
Snoopy in his ace helmet

This was my first model I did for a team where I actually had the chance to show things off! I'm actually quite proud of this model even though there could be some improvements, but that's in the past. From the concept frame I got, I'm guessing he's an E.S.W.A.T. bomb disposal officer guy...whatever:
The Concept
Officer 1
Head Shot

This is a scene I did for the "Master's and Servant" challenge at This I believe was around the same time or before the guy you see above. Not my greatest, but meh:
Mission Failed

And after that challenge, I entered the next one but didn't get to complete it...I was getting good too :P
Hermes Torso

And here are two ships I've had in my head for probably a decade...or longer; and there are more in this series of ships. I started modeling them, but I can't seem to pull out the details of them...these are just the base meshes to be worked on at a later time:
Mantiray Fighter 1
Mantiray Fighter 2

Crimson Bomber 1
Crimson Bomber 2
Crimson Bomber 3
Crimson Bomber 4
