Bronze Casting Sculpture from RP Mould
Recently, we use Rapid Prototyping to make mould for casting two bronze sculptures: football players. The artist make 12 inch tall maquette; then he scans the maquette to generate Digital file (STL format). We use the file for Rapid Prototyping and bronze casting. Here is the progress. This is the maquette of the sculpture, 12 inch tall. The maquette is to be scanned by a 3d scanner. The artist scan the Maquette with a 3D scanner and generate the 3D mold of the sculpture. There are many formats available for RP printing. The most often used is STL and STP. Besides 3D scanning, you can also use 3D software to create digital mould. The most commonly use 3D software is Rhino, Zbrush and Maya. After receiving the digital file from artist, we need to make necessary touch up on the work since there are always some piece missing during the scanning process. After refinement of the 3D mold, we print out the sculpture. We make sure all the textured details of the sculpture are well kept. The printed pieces require our artisan to remove the imperfection and smooth its surface. To do that, we use very fine grain sand paper to sand the piece. The finished work is ready for making silicone rubber mold and wax work. We make silicone rubber mold and the wax work ( for lost wax casting). We pay great attention to the make sure all the details of the wax is in perfect condition. We use lost wax casting to cast bronze sculpture. After the bronze castings come out, we do the metal chase and weld pieces together, check out all the welding seam and smooth them. Bronze sculpture casting has been Tany Foundry***8217;s core business and we have a team of very skillful artisans to handle this. After chasing work, we do patina on the bronze casting and seal wax. According to the artist***8217;s needs, we use dark brown for patina and the work is completed and they look really nice.

    I'm curious though: if you use ZBrush or other 3D programs, why did you start with a 12" maquette? Was it necessary to get client approval from a physical prototype? Or was it artist preference? It seems to me that starting from a digital sculpt would...

Final render
So I finally finished Oderus of GWAR. I started this personal project in December 2013. At the time it was just a regular piece of fan art. Then Dave Brockie died in March 2014 and it turned into a tribute piece. It***8217;s actually taken me some time to cope with his death, which is also why I left it for a while until I finished it in August 2014. R.I.P. and thanks for everything Dave. I ended up having 24 subtools and around 60-70 million polygons for all the pieces on him. Almost all of the geometry was created in ZBrush as was my intention. Only bits modelled in Maya are the eyes. ZRemeshing and UV layouts were done in ZBrush, all texturing was done within ZBrush with a little help from Photoshop. Beard and hair was done with FiberMesh. Rendered in KeyShot. Please check out the full view and KeyShotVR at: http://pixelpirate.dk/portfolio/oderus-urungus/

CAPCOM - Realistic portrait
Hi everyone, my name is Riccardo Minervino and I'm a senior character artist at CAPCOM in Japan. I'm proud to be able to show you our latest achievement in photo-realistic character modeling. This image is the result of many months of research, and combines the latest technologies with years of experience. The head is a scan-base model, retopology and skin details were created in zBrush, the hair was made in 3DSMax with Ornatrix and the final image was rendered in Octane Render with physically based shaders. Hope you like it!

Latest 3D music video for Duologue
Hi guys, I would just like to share some of the latest work that we have produced at FBFX in collaboration with Analog Studios and Marshmellow Laser Feast. The base model was created using our 90+ camera Photogrammetry rig. Further cleanup and refining of the model including adding highres details to the mesh were performed in ZBrush by myself and fellow artist Phil Hope. UV's were also made in ZBrush. Our friends at Analog Studios created the materials/renders with Vray & 3DsMax using the lighting information from a magical moment of the sunset through a window (the Analog Studio toilet), as a spherical panoramic HDR photo. Marshmellow Laser Feast produced the video for the band Duologue Hope you like it.

Crazy fans
hello, everyone. This work is inspired by the world cup. This year, 2014, is the time for the world cup, a football competition held once four years, so i would like to focus on an interesting topic related to the world cup. When i watch the game, i find the football fans are very excited, even more excited than the players. Therefore i would like to express this idea in exaggeration from the perspective of fans. I like brazilian team, and i also like french team, so i want to incorparate these two football teams into this picture, thus creating an interesting image. I hope you will like it. I like the player in this picture very much. This year he did not play because of injury. I hope he will recover soon. Thank you

Sure, my pleasure! Naturally, the scale of your object matters, so adjust as necessary but the main fibers panel looks like this: i used the Hair 2 material with some minor adjustment to the specular color and ambient settings: Also, after I accepted the fiber settings, I used the GroomHairShort brush to vary the flow of the fur with the 'Front collision detection tolerance' reduced from the default 50 to 20 (again, this is relative to the object scale - whatever works). Under 'Display properties' for the fibers layer, i reduced the BPR shadows from 100 to 75. The lighting was a simple 3 light setup. nothing special. Hope this helps. Good luck with the challenge!

Dinosaur: from 3D modeling to bronze sculpture
Below are a few step by step photos showing how we cast 1 meter long dino from 3D model. The Dinosaur is designed by Tom Tischler. We do 3D printing and cast the bronze sculpture. Step 1: Digital model. It is done with Zbrush Step 2: 3D printing. We use high quality 3D printing technique to print them out. Every details are perfectly reserved. Step 3: Bronze casting. We use lost wax casting technique to cast the work in bronze. The result is great. For more details on how to apply 3D printing and bronze casting onto your work, Please visit our website.
