HOLY SHIT! That's incredible  :fnord: :fnord: :fnord:

Art in the VR space is straight up magic, that is a completely different experience than 2d viewing. It felt like I was confronting a real presence.

So much potential in this, my mind is racing.  Thanks so much for sharing this in the VR format!! GREAT WORK!

Also, to whom it may concern, for like $15 you can get a google cardboard, or 3rd party, viewer that turns your phone into make shift virtual reality goggles, and it is genuinely amazing. I got a few at the beginning of the year for my computer science class, and have been delighting in getting to turn people on to safe little glimpses of psychedelic immersion   :fnord:

If you have the spondoolicks handy, shelling out for a full blown oculus or vive setup is worth every penny. The jump in quality from carboard is pretty much exponential. Head/hand tracking and low persistence have to be experienced to be fully appreciated.

Here's links to some more. If you sign up to sketchfab and sub me I'm planning on uploading a ton of these now that I've figured out a pipeline that gives me reasonable quality with not a lot of fucking around.

Fuck yeah dude this shit is crazy good!!  :fnord: :fnord:

Adding in the background atmosphere enhanced the experience considerably!

I don't know where you're going w/ these, but I can't wait to see what's next!

So the big news in VR sculpting is the Medium team pushed a new update which allows the export of tangent space normals. Up til now it only spat out object space and realtime engines like UE4 and Sketchfab require tangent space. Use the wrong kind and fine detail comes out looking shonky as fuck. Long story short, I can now export from Medium, straight into UE4 and use my Medium sculpts as assets in Unreal Engine whereas, before the update, I had to do a ton of arsing around in the middle and still couldn't get it completely right.

My portfolio shall be an interactive VR art gallery in the style of a fairground house of horrors.  8)

Some anatomy practice, this time creases and wrinkles. Can't take credit for the base mesh that was released by the insanely talented Steve Lord, I just aged him a bit.

I really like the virtual fairgrounds idea. I don't have much constructive to add, but hotdamn you're lightyears from where you started on this. Like holy fuck man.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Yeah, thanks man. Pretty stoked myself. I've wanted to be able to do this shit for decades but flatscreen tech always held me back. I knew if I stuck in I'd get there but wrestling with 2-d interfaces sucked any fun out of it for me. VR and Medium feels like art. Z-brush and the like feels like software engineering which I get more than enough of at work.

Cheers! "Badass" was totally my mantra while I was doing this dude. "Badass" and "Murrica" those were my inspiration.

So I started today with a face study all serious and grown up, like.


Then I sculpted over her with a custom stamp I made a while back called "Xenomorph" Think of custom stamps like custom brushes in photoshop only you're using them to fill 3-d voxel space.


Timelapse here

Check her out on Sketchfab

I've always had a love/hate relationship with portraits. Maybe sounds dumb but I kinda form a deep emotional connection with the subject. It's a bit like falling in love but not quite. Hard to put into words exactly but it feels great. Problem is, I always get to a stage where it's not quite right but there's fuck all I can do to fix it and I niggle away at tiny details but it makes no difference and eventually I just ragequit out of pure frustration and that's when I'm finished and it's time to upload to deviant art  8)

I did karloff years back in photoshop so this is a romance rekindled. Those deep soulful eyes, the primitive prosthetic. Such a striking, iconic image. The perfect illustration of Shelley's tragic creature. I'll spend another couple of hours on this and I know already it won't be right but, hopefully I'll be closer to the truth than I was before I started and, if not, at least I get to spend a bit more time falling in love with a dead actor.

That's probably the most relatable Frankenstein's Monster I've ever seen, short of the first film adaptation. He actually looks sad, and not just dumbly horrific.

Thanks an absolute ton! I was totally shooting for the pathos he brought to the screen which was so on point in keeping with the book. You want to see awesome, tho,check out this guys work. I was using it as a reference, examining it in microscopic detail all day yesterday and I only found out today it's not a photo of Karloff, it's a life-size fucking sculpt by a stupid talented guy named Mike Hill. I feel like I'm getting the hang of this shit but, fuck me, have I got a long way to go!
