A sign of life in a long time

After a period of silence due to a series of happy events that, as side-effect, have led to a reduction of the free time and of the tranquility necessary to cultivate the computer graphics , I return here with something completely different.
Although I know that I will leave the tablet to take “dust” for quite a time… but I know also that a day I will return to th CG with (I hope) works as good as I did the last.

In the meantime, I have dedicated myself to something closer to my job, and that I can easily manage despite the many interruptions caused by the new two small inhabitants of my apartment.
It is the porting for smartphone of a typical card game played on the region where I live.
For now there is only the ‘Italian’ version of it, but I planned to make also the “International” version in english, in order to export the game.

If you are interested and you know Italian language, then you could follow me on the official page of the Apllication…

Turn Table gallery update at Pixologic

I am moving house soon, but before changing some (last minute) big renovations should be made ​​in the new house and so I have to wait a few weeks before i could devote myself again to my “digital” and “real” models.
This is the main reason why I have not updated the blog … : (
But now I finally have the opportunity to post some great news: Pixologic has updated its turntable gallery by adding some of my past works!!!

Thank you very much Pixologic :)

I hope to have soon the opportunity to be able to show something new :)

My first 3D Print

The pack arrived today!

By the way, when I won the contest with the Spawn model I was really tempted to try to make it real with a 3D Print.
I have checked on zBrushCentral and googled a little in order to check the best 3D print services for zBrush creations and I requested some quote to Ownage (seeing their work I can tell that they are really the best!), to moddler and to Offload Studios.
The quote arrived, but, in order to have a 3D print of aprox 5″ of this bust the minimum request was around 600$… I was really tempted, but my wife took off my smile threatening instantaneous castration.

Fortunately my friend (you know Doctor Danko right?) advised me to ask his friend Paolo Camelio who owns a 3D printer and the dream came true without the risk of a eviration!!!

I sliced the zBrush model in some pieces and exported them in STL in order to have a 130mm statue.
Today I received the print and I will start soon with the preparation of the bust!

Here some photo

If you want to contact the friend in order to ask some hint for a 3D Print…

Turntables Turntables Turntables

In these days my PC was working hard on night…
I have made a little zBrush Plugin in order to do these stereo turntable: for now it is a bit rough, but I will try to make it a little better in the future.
For now you can download it from this post on zBrushCentral.

All these are made in order to improve a little my portfolio.
If you have some red-cyan google or some other 3D trick you can check the 3D version on youtube.

Hope you like these

please check in the video option and set an higher resolution (I’m sorry but my WP youtube plugin seem not working properly…)

Some other Stereo Turntables

No much time to start some new model… but I renewed a little my portfolio with some new zBrush renders.
Here a sample:

Please check my portfolio page in order to see other new renders :)

The last night I launched on the same model my zBrush macro in order to make a “stereo” turntable.
Here the result:

If you cross your eyes you could see it in 3D… otherwise you could check THIS VIDEO on youtube in order to see this in 3D without crossing your eyes.
In these next days I think that I will run the macro on other model, so in the near future I will post more of these “stereo” turntables.
