Already got a good start on the next bust. I have spent a little bit of time last weekend and then dove head first into it again this weekend. Already more happy with this project than the last one. This one also looks like the person I am trying to model haha. It's always nice to see actual improvement from a previous attempt. :) Going to tackle the hair and some accessories next. #3d #3dmodel #art #artist #artoftheday #zbrush #digitalart #render #anatomy #anatomystudy #digitalsculpting #pixologic #highpoly #portrait #sculpt #3dsculpting

Calling this project done! Did a few more form edits and added some skin detail. This is the Zbrush screenshot. Onto the next! #cg #3d #3dartist #3dart #zbrush #zbrushsculpt #face #artoftheday #anatomy #anatomypractice

Current project WIP. Taking it slow as usual.  This is my first of many anatomy studies that I will be doing. Still going to tackle the small pore details before moving on to the next one. #3d #3dart #3dartist #zbrush #zbrushsculpt #anatomy #study #artist #wip #pixologic #artoftheday
Hey everyone! I have finally finished this behemoth of a project! This took so long because I have such a hard time keeping things simple. I hope you like the final product. My goal was to try and recreate the feeling and intensity of the original artwork in 3D. Thanks to @kyleshold for creating such a badass illustration. You should all go over to his page and like all his work because he is awesome. Thanks to @loowitbrewing for creating such good and ferocious beer! I will be going over there soon fo sho. This was modeled and textured in Zbrush. Additional modeling and texturing in 3DSMax. Rendered in Vray. Composited in After Effects. Music by Rage against the Machine. I will be prepping this for printing sometime in the near future but for now, on to the next one! #3d #3dmodel #art #artist #artoftheday #zbrush #digitalart #render #vray #3dsmax #chaosgroup #digitalsculpting #pixologic #highpoly #tortoise #loowitbrewing #brewing #rubble #destruction #final #crazy #sculpt #3dprinting #rockets #explosions #cgafrica #3dsculpting #aftereffects #productioncrate #rageagainstthemachine

Hey everyone! It has been too long! So I have been texturing and lighting this for a good while now. Here is a sneak peek at some of what I have done. I have the base completed and still need to do the top weaponry but most of this is almost done. There is still some fun stuff I want to do with this so stay tuned! Hopefully in not too I will show you all the finished render/animation before moving on to making this project print ready. Hope you all have an amazing new years! #3d #3dmodel #art #artist #artoftheday #zbrush #digitalart #render  #vray #3dsmax #chaosgroup #digitalsculpting #pixologic #highpoly #tortoise #loowitbrewing #brewing #rubble #destruction #wip #crazy #sculpt #3dprinting

Ok model is done! Here are a bunch of shots so you can see all that has gone into it so far. The next phase will be texturing this behemoth. I have Unwrapped all of the pieces that will be handpainted and will tackle that next. Very happy with how everything has turned out so far. Thanks for sticking with me on this! Have a great rest of your weekend everyone! #3d #3dmodel #art #artist #artoftheday #zbrush #digitalart #render #digitalsculpting #pixologic #highpoly #tortoise #loowitbrewing #brewing #rubble #destruction #wip #crazy #sculpt #3dprinting

Hello everyone! Here is another update to this massive project. I have now done another pass on the tortoise to further refine the shapes. I have also placed a ton of the assets that I have been making around the huge rubble pile. I need to step away from it for a bit so I can evaluate if I want to do anything else to the model but it is getting really close! There are still a few things that I need to do to finish it off but I am happy with the result so far. Hope you all are digging it as well! #3d #3dmodel #art #artist #artoftheday #zbrush #digitalart #render #digitalsculpting #pixologic #highpoly #tortoise #render #loowit #brewing #rubble #destruction #wip

Another update on this project! I finished some utility bags and grenades for the sides and did a big detail pass. Lots of fun! Looking forward to the next phase of the project.

Hey all! Here is a small but fun update to this project. I built a walkie talkie with the new Boolean system within Zbrush and imported it into the scene. So much fun and intuitive! I love it. Here are a few shots of the radio by itself and then implemented into the scene. I also created a bullet necklace as per the reference material. Next I will be building a few bags and misc stuff. Hope to show you all another update within the next week or so. Stay metal! #3d #3dmodel #art #artist #artoftheday #zbrush #digitalart #render #digitalsculpting #pixologic #highpoly #tortoise #render #loowit #brewing #boolean #radio

Hey all! It has been a while but I am finally ready to show some shots of my current project. This is still very much a WIP. This is based off of a beer label by Loowit Brewing. They are local to me. The beer is called the Way Tortoise and it is killer! I plan on making an illustration or if this as well as getting or printed. Still got lots to do as always! #3d #3dprinting #war #tortoise #art #artist #zbrush #zbrushart #artoftheday #wip #render #loowit #brewing

I am calling this project done! I might do another angle of just the frog but for all intents and purposes, this is the final comp. I call it "Sneak Attack!" This was a lot of fun and I learned a ton from this project. Feel free to hop over to my blog (link in bio) to see a full resolution version of the image. Looking forward to the next one!

Been a while! It has been a crazy few months for me so I have not had a chance to update. But because of the long weekend I am able to get back to this project. I was able to generate all the maps for the assets in the scene and then transfer everything over to 3DS Max. The scene is light since I am using low rez meshes along with displacement maps. So far, everything has looked pretty good. I am now going through everything and messing with SSS shaders and lighting. I also will be adding some moss with Vray fur and some hair on the moth. Still a ways to go but I am glad I have been able to throw some hours at this project. I should be able to put some more time into this coming up so I can finally finish it and move on to the next one. Hope you all have rest of your weekend! #3d #3dmodel #art #artist #artoftheday #zbrush #digitalart #render #digitalsculpting #pixologic #highpoly #wip #frog #test #render #Vray

Got a large chunk of polypainting done on this project. Still have the moth to do but that should be easier now with all the other elements in the scene. Once that is done, I will bring it into Max and probably spend far too long getting the lighting and materials to a decent spot. Still tons to do but glad I am making progress.

Slowly but surely chipping away at this project. Did a lot of mundane stuff like uv unwrapping most of the scene. I do like uv master plugin a lot. Also started doing some fiber mesh for the moss. But after all that stuff I decided to throw the frog into keyshot to do some skin tests. Liking the results. So much to do yet but it is coming together.

Throwback Thursday to a sculpt I did a few years ago. This was based off a concept. Lots of fun and I learned a lot from putting this together. This was all done in Zbrush.  #3d #3dmodel #art #artist #artoftheday #zbrush #digitalart #render #digitalsculpting #pixologic #highpoly #tbt #skeleton #solider #monster #armor

Spending some time this weekend pushing the details of the frog. Next up is the moth and then the rest of the scene! Filming one handed makes it a bit difficult to sculpt. 😀  #3d #3dmodel #art #artist #artoftheday #zbrush #digitalart #render #digitalsculpting #pixologic #highpoly #frog #nature #treefrog #moth #wip #redeyedtreefrog
