Painting in 3D

Final (?) Version of this project. An attempt to make one of Gil Elvgren's pin-up paintings into 3D... Sculpted in ZBrush, posed in 3DSMax, reworked and decimated in ZBrush, then rendered in Max... Here's a breakdown (Thanks Steff for showing me the rim light trick...)

Also, I never really posted any progress on this, so here's roughly how it went (I know it looks really scary in some stages)...

Update on Ollie... Might have to knock the detail on the diffuse a little bit, but that's life...
Please watch in HD because the regular quality is really bad...

Small update, with some compositing (Yeah, it was supposed to be a night scene...)

Because this blog is not yet dead, here's some progress on the house... More to come soon...

Yet another WIP, this time completely unrelated to our senior project. I started working on this last summer, then stopped, then came back to it recently. This is a fairly old iteration, I'll post the final when I'm done rendering. =p

Sorry for not finishing the Alien yet, but I had to take a break from him to work on one of the environments. So here's the very beginning of our house and corn field. Now I have two posts to update! =p

Ollie the Alien

Update! =D

Our final project is finally coming to the fun part! Too bad it won't last for too long, so I'd better enjoy! =D Anyway, here's the start of Olie the Alien. I'll post my progress as I go.

Based on this awesome design by Tara Mueller. Check her website here and her blog here!

I was going put this guy in more poses, but I had to put this together really fast for a reason... Also, he has a cape which I haven't really been able to rig yet. So well, while I don't get a chance to go back to working on, I'll just put this one up here.

"Beauty Shot"

This place always goes through long periods of ostracism, so here's something just to keep it running... I'm sure you've seen this somewhere before, but, in case you haven't, it's a "beauty shot" for our as-of-yet-unnamed senior project. If you're interested in following it, please visit our other blog (do keep in mind that we change our team name every now and then and I can't guarantee this link is still gonna work next week).

That Car

"What car is that?" Anyway, I think this is as far as I'll go with this, it's been a while and I should get started into something else. It was fun while it lasted...

Car Model - WIP

Update =P
Uploading just so people can't say I don't ever post anything... Anyway, been working on this for some time now. I figured I needed to do more hard surface modeling. Still a lot to go on ZBrushing and texturing, but it will get ready eventually. =P
