Count Dooku Study, Sculpt and 3D print

By | 3d printing tutorials | 4 Comments

It was supposed to be a challenge, a study and an exercise. At the same time, a challenge because everybody knows how Count Dooku looks and the version Darren E.Marshall did is sooo good, and I was afraid that I won’t be able to pull it off. And, to make things more interesting, I was about to 3d sculpt it on my Cintiq Companion 2. It’s the first time that I have ever used a Cintiq for 3d sculpting. I wanted to know if the Cintiq would be a good tool to have in my arsenal, the guys at Wacom offer the possibility to return the product in 40 days if you don’t like it, so to make sure the tool was great, this was the perfect test.
After a couple of days… actually, it was a couple of hours in one weekend, then a couple of hours during the evening before going to bed, I was able to finish the 3d sculpt and…

Marvelous Designer Tutorial

By | 3d chef hat tutorial, 3d tutorials, Marvelous Designer Tutorials, Video 3D Tutorials | No Comments

Now, let’s talk about this marvelous tutorial, I will be showing you how to create a Chef’s Toque also known as a Chef’s Hat (Toque sounds so fancy, I have no idea how to say that word out loud without feeling french) using only Marvelous designer, I will show you some new tools and techniques that I used on a client’s projects. We will look at the strengthen feature, a very under-appreciated tool in marvelous designer, but it’s one of the features in marvelous designer that I love using and it saved my butt more than a couple of times, especially when I wanted the 3d cloth to be stiff or just play nice with the other parts of the cloth.

A Jack of All trades

By | Freelancing | 2 Comments

I’m a web designer, a graphic designer, motion graphics designer, a 3d modeler, 3d lighting, 3d character designer, and I’m a 3d sculptor. I’m all of those things and sometimes I jump from one role to the other 2 or 3 times a day and I’m not a shamed of it and you shouldn’t be either.
For the last couple of years I was trapped in this idea of being a specialist and being amazing at one thing, but the more I work and the more time I spent learning only one speciality

Christmas… my favourite time of the year… I know it sounds very cliche, but I just love it, and it’s not only the gifts and the good food it’s just that the atmosphere and the people are a bit more loving and calm. Well, living in beautiful Brasov helps a lot cause this place is magical in every season but nothing compares to snowy Brasov… at least for me.
