It has been awhile since we have posted in here, been lots brewing in the lab lately. We recently finished putting a series of works together for an art exhibit and as a good number of the finished renders had their
origins in or were made exclusively with Z-brush I thought I would share some of them with the community. Let us know what you think!!
This one is made from a rather old 3d scan of a pecked whale bone mask from Alaska. This entire assemblage is going to be revisited by us in the near future in order to capture better data so don’t be surprised to see variations of this artifact soon.
We wanted to include some more cetaceans because they were such a big hit last time. We made the executive decision that they needed to be enormous and decided
to throw a dolphin in for good measure as well. Measuring in at !! 120 x 40 inches !! this render is a real eye catcher.
This is a detail of the latest articulation Short Beaked Common Dolphin (Saddle Back Dolphin) masterfully done by Robert.
These are 3D models of various artifacts from many years of archaeological research in Alaska. These are beautiful and extraordinarily rare. No question this was my all time favorite collection to have had the pleasure to work with.
A little bump and displacement helps bring out fine details.
This is a piece from some bio-mechanical work being done in the lab with Robert and a team of exceptional paleontologists trying to unwrap the mysteries of the Helicoprion.
Shown is a 3d scan cleaned and rendered with a low resolution reconstruction of the feature represented in the fossil. We have much higher detail versions of this
but as the research is still very much underway I can’t reveal what else is behind the curtain. However, expect to see more of this material soon as well!
This is the kind of stuff that makes science sexy
Finally, a little more false color CT work. I really love pealing these files apart…don’t ask me why but it’s a little like popping bubble wrap for me.
That is all for now, we have tons of new stuff that we are working on and we have even more of these up on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/IdahoVirtualizationLaboratory) so feel free to hop over and browse. Don’t forget to drop us a like and say hi while you are there!!
