    Default Cícero D'Avila - "Cariátide Ruiva"

    Hi,

    This is the first project in wich I'm working with the help of the technology.

    The piece was previously modeled with water based clay. Then a plaster cast was taken from the clay model and it has been scanned and I had to rework it with ZBrush to correct a lot of imperfections due to the scanning process.

    After that the piece was digitally carved in a carrara marble block by a carving robot, but the result wasn't satisfactory. At the moment I'm working to try to put back on the marble sculpture the same freshness and details of the initial model.

    Usually I the process of trasformation of a clay sculpture to marble is done through an artesanal process with a ponting machine, this process is used since the ancient greek period. This is my first experience on using a tecnological media to demystify the idea that the technology works out absolutely perfect by itself.

    I must admit that I got very disappointed because the work I'm doing now to get the job done is much bigger and unprecise than the conventional way. But I confess that it has been a good experience due the fact of working with something completely new to me.

    By the way, I'm loving working with ZBrush and soon I'll post some models created with it.

    I hope you like it.

    Utterly fantastic! I must say I like the plaster piece the best. Perfect form of the female body. I got a flutter when I first saw the plaster.
