MM45 – Modeling

MM45 Open

Our second half of the Hardsurface Modeling 2 class we spent on a concept art of our choice. I went with a mechanical space helmet by Benoit Godde. It was tough to align all the different panels and design parts not visible in the concept piece while modeling. Next term I’m planning on texturing this and put some scratches on.

Hellguard

Hellguard

What a term at Gnomon. Intro to ZBrush was one of the classes, we went over all aspects of the software so unfortunately we didn’t have to much time for the sculpting itself since we had to cover materials and rendering too.
I chose a really creepy concept of a monster by Anthony Jones called Hellguard. It was interesting to figure out the head with its worm-like creature. After I finished the sculpt and polypaint I took it into Maya and rendered out some stills with MentalRay.

Dead Space 3 Interior

Dead Space 3 Interior

As a final project in our Introduction to Maya class we created an interior based on an existing concept art. I found this Dead Space 3 concept art by The OK Artist (Patrick O’Keefe). The block out phase was rather challenging because the room had a very interesting shape. The textures are mostly tileable metal textures that were used for the various parts since there are so many objects in the scene.

Interior Texturing Exercise

Texturing Interior

Our final project in Texturing & Shading 1 was to find an interesting composition in a room that we got completely modeled. We then lit, textured and shaded this camera angle to create an interesting still image. The biggest difficulty was to find textures and patterns that work together.

 

San Francisco Loft

Interior

For our intro to Maya class at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects we had to recreate a interior based on a photo. I chose a loft by LINEOFFICE Architecture that I found on archdaily.com. We had to match the camera to the photo which allowed as to get used to all the basic modeling, texturing and lighting tools in Maya. Rendered in Mental Ray.
