Just another fun modeling/sculpting project, made a quick base in maya and then sculpted everything in zbrush.
Did some quick texturing with quixel suite and substance painter to play around, both are incredibly fun to use and speeds up texturing workflow tons!
For the fun of it I also printed it with my 3D printer as one of the first test prints. I’ll do some finishing polish work on it in the future.
Ever since I got a 3D printer the possibilites for even the simplest of things became real, like this farewell gift to a colleague who is off to new adventures, why not make it a more I-wont-forget-you kind of gift, especially when you have internal jokes haha.
This was a quick modeling session in maya (had to look at blueprints of the golden gate bridge to get it somewhat right and 3d print friendly), then once printed I painted some parts with acrylic paint, this was damn fun for such a small project!
This is a personal wip project I did for fun while learning to work with PTEX, so in these renders everything is UV-free, oh the joy! The whole idea of creating this project came after playing God of War: Acension, for those of you that have played it will quickly recongnize that the octopus monster is based on the character Alecto, which I loved!
More updates will come even tho I have put this project to some rest for now since I’ve accomplished my goal of understanding a PTEX workflow.
This is one my earlier tests with PTEX and the benefit of using vector displacement maps with Maya and mental ray Click for hi-res
