    Default Aumakua's Sketchbook

    Hello everyone
    I decided to open a single thread for all my WIP projects I'll be working on from now on
    Here's my latest work, a still image entry for CGTalk's Steampunk Myths and Legends challenge.

    The story behind the concept I chose lies like this.
    According to the ancient Greek Mythology, Kerberos was the gigantic three headed dog which guarded the gates of Hades.


    He was posted to prevent ghosts of the dead from leaving the underworld.


    I wanted to make a steampunk version of Kerberos, depicted as a hybrid monster, partially organic and partially mechanical, armed with an armour and a flame thrower weapon, which guarded a steampunk palace of the dead into the underworld.

    I did the initial modeling and some particle rendering in Softimage XSI, while heavy modifications, sculpting and rendering in passes was done in ZBrush. Final compositing was done in Photoshop.
    I had some hard time to finish it on time but had enormous fun doing this and learned alot of new things..


    I hope you like it

    Hi,
    I'll be working on an airship concept, meant for a single person (pilot).
    Softimage and ZBrush work for now, I'd like to make a 3d print out of it
