A current work in progress, in fact, a deviation from another project: "Nya-Nya" The hairs and cat-ears have been sculpted really quickly before switching to the pre-printing process (model hollowed with the Create Shell function and decimated with Decimation Master). Then it has been printed quickly with a Form1+ at its lowest resolution, 100 microns. It lacks some sanding, but I wanted to visualize the shape before moving forward...

3D printed Lone Star ring
Well I have had the Lone Star ring I modeled earlier 3d printed at Kraftwurx.com. I used "Nano-Detail Amber Resin". (PIC 100) This material is fully cast-able. I will most likely have the ring cast in stainless steel. Here are some photos of the 3d printed casting pattern. This Nano-Detail Amber Resin material on Kraftwurx.com is very durable and perfect for final parts such as scale model parts and casting into metals such as gold, silver, etc. One of my favorites by far. (I accidentally posted this more than once. I hope the admins can repair my mess.)

    How did you achieve such cool print? Any tips to share? If you’re not fine using resin in 3D printing jewellery, T-glase clear filament can be a good alternative.

My ZBrush work on Beyond Beyond
Hi all. Unfortunately I have been under NDA for so long, but now I can show you some of the work I did on Esben Toft's film "Beyond Beyond". I was lead- modeler and groomer on this production and I used Zbrush on all of my assets. The other modelers also used Zbrush, but more for surfacing. I used it from scratch on one of the characters and Also used it to knock up a bunch of props and locations. With this style, Zbrush is perfect to sculpt in damage and to bend up wood and rock. I also had to build a bunch of modules for the other modelers to work with so they could build the city. You can see the characters fly through the city in the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y93jJchY4nw Here are some behind the scenes assets I was working on along with the feather king (rabbit bird creature). I groomed all of the characters, and wanted to include them here to show off some of the great work Kristian Rydberg did with Zbrush here as well cheers,

Godless Dog: No worries. nimajneb : Thanks for the info. I only use Pinch to taper the fibers together so I won't have to do any grooming in Maya when I export the curves out. That being said, I've never had any problems at render time in Zbrush. Observe, bulge-free hair :

    Glad you liked it guys. The smooth brush is my fix for kinks in the hair. Close to the tip with Preserve Length at 0, it makes the fibers shorter. Close to the root, it averages the fibers and smooths it out. Try it.

Here are the little break down of "Attack On Titan" piece. This is just a fan art I made before the live action movie announced. I think some of you guys may seen the article that saying this is official art but just so you know this is not official art. First image is the screenshot of Zbrush sculpting with polypaint. Second one is the raw render image rendered with Vray . Buildings and the naked guy are just place holder. Check out the full break down on here (Its all written in Japanese though...)

Assignment #3: Enviornment Assset
For our most recent assignment in class we had to sculpt some sort of environment asset. I chose to do a rotted grave stone, though I didn't get to really finish it. I ran out of time, and the grave stone I chose to do was actually pretty hard to do, so it needs another like 4 hours on it. Here's the reference: And here's the result: It was really hard to do, I wish I could have lightened it up a little bit, and maybe added some more noise? I don't know, I was pretty impressed with myself on the shawl though, because I was looking at it at first and I was just thinking there's no way I'm going to be able to do this. Overall I think if I could've given it a little bit more time, but I'm happy with the result.

Hey dog, you best ask Mealea, Lucifer or Gutalin for any more details. I didn't take their technique as far as they did. It's been a while since I used but I think it went something like this. The basics are: *Create UV map: PUVAUV or GUV tiles. Each gives a different UV tiling *Polygroups: Autogroups with UV *Divide: Once or more. If you want to keep the shape with sharp edges turn off SMT *Grouploops: Now you got a whole bunch of polygroups you can play around with. I'm sure from there you can figure out all kinds of techniques to manipulate the polygroups. Like this , same basic technique: But like I said if you want details ask the masters .
