"Harry" at the siggraph

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 12, 2008, 2:13 PM

zbc

I'm happy to present today my Sculpt of "Harry" the hero of the new Steambotstudios.com steambotstudios.com/ artbook due for Halloween.
The concept is from my good friends and great artists Joel dos reis viegas AKA Feerik feerikart.deviantart.com/ and Thierry Doizon AKA Barontieri barontieri.deviantart.com/

A big thanks to the great guys from Offloadstudios.com offloadstudios.com/ who made the 3d print
and their photographer Duncan Turner.

I was suppose to show this statue and give a little presentation today at the Siggraph and Gnomon,
but unfortunately I had a problem at the US customs
(I had a valid passport but apparently I needed an electronic passport) by chance the statue is still being presented.

I hope you guys will enjoy it!
thanks to Jaime and the whole pixologic team (I wish I was there with you guys).

those are the images of Harry

First I really want to thank all the people that come visit my deviantart page!
A special thanks to those who comments on my work, I'm also sorry for not answering those, I don't have a lot of time lately!.

For people who wants me to teach them or to "chat" I don't use any chatting program to begin with but I just don't have the time for that with a my little family, the work (or work related activities) and my personnal projects.

I might do a workshop in montreal in the future if people are interested it will probably be around 450 $ CAN, I will do a poll do see how many people would be interested. If enough people would like to come I will start on the logistics.

I also had the chance lately to be featured in a few interviews, thanks guys for the opportunity!

On Zbrushcentral www.zbrushcentral.com/zbc/show…

On the area: area.autodesk.com/index.php/pr…

And also www.tagtele.com/videos/voir/10…

  • Mood: Tired
  • Watching: my daughter grow :)
  • Playing: Zelda: Phantom hourglass (on my way to work)
So I am posting the link to the pixologic interview I was part of a few months ago!

features.cgsociety.org/cgfilms…

thanks again to everyone who commented and thanks for visiting my deviantart page (my only web page).

I registered to deviantart in 2005 and had about 5000 hits in more then 2 years, in less than 2 months I had more than 23 000 unique hits so thanks everyone. I am really thinking about paying for a full account to be able to add links of fellow artists etc...  

I will be at the adapt conference www.adaptmontreal.com/ &n… the end of september (it is comfirmed but you won't see my name yet, they just got the info) I will update my journal when I know more about it.

Thanks again for all the support guys! :)
  • Mood: Wow!
  • Playing: comand and conquer 3
First I want to thank everyone that left me messages and faved me I don't always answer but I read them all and I really appreciate your words!

I'm releasing the first high-res pictures on some of the characters I worked on since there is videos of them (in the crowd).

check the gallery to see them mojette.deviantart.com/gallery…

www.gametrailers.com/player/21… and an older one www.gametrailers.com/player/13…

the production for the characters is pretty much over (it is for me anyway).
I will be releasing more artwork when I can!
I've also worked on the low-res characters but I'm not going to show them as they will be featured in the game. of course they will be mixed and matched with other parts (that's the way it works in AC to create a multitude of NPCs)

There is also a video interview from Pixologic (zbrush) coming up in which I'm featured. It should be out at Sigraph in August (hopefully). It was so weird being filmed (I not crazy about that).

and last news (if you are still reading) ... :) my daughter just turned 1 Sunday (fells like my life just switch to warpspeed).

  • Listening to: nothing my ipod crashed and deleted the HD

  • Eating: my shorts!
Well it's been a while since I updated the journal!
My daughter is now 9 months old and she's growing fast she's so great! I just wich I had more time! I'm thinking more and more about becoming freelance and with the release of Zbrush 3 in may it would be the perfect platform to get visible! I participated in the beta for ZB3 and I have to say that's a really great software I'm having the most fun ever modeling!
I also think now the term modeler should be replace by digital scluptor :).

You should also check out the work from the other beta testers at zbruhcentral 206.145.80.239/zbc/forumdispla…
