3D Print your own TAR of Zandoria Collectible!

TAR_stl_1

Download and 3D print your own TAR of Zandoria collectible statue! Print it and put it on your desk. Print it and give it as a gift. Take a picture and share it! Every time someone sees this statue, they are going to ask “What IS that!?”

That is going to help spread awareness of this project, and the cost of the .stl will help me keep the lights on 😉

Pierre at Cults3D invited me to upload  my sculptures to their new 3D model marketplace where people can buy print-ready models to build on their 3D printers. It seems like a great idea–I imagine that there are only so many Stanford bunnies and Yoda heads that a person needs… As 3D printers become ubiquitous there is a need for high quality sculpts to fill the build platforms.

I foresee that there is going to be a market for commission work too, so if you need a little help bringing your idea to life, please give me a shout. Here it is on Thingiverse

Animation Magazine

I was overwhelmed to open the January issue of Animation Magazine this week–this coming year is the 15 year anniversary of Zandoria Studios, and they included a half-page bio on me and my project!

It was very sweet and made my week! I had just resigned some of my responsibilities at SMP Instore Marketing (my day job), in order to work part time from home and focus on my art…I was pretty nervous about the decision. Reading this tribute brought tears to my eyes–it was a real Godsend. I felt affirmed that I was on the right path

Modeling the Ninja Hyena

I’m still plugging away… Not as much progress as I would like on this project, and it feels like I am years away from where I would like to be.

I’ve finished the model and am into the rigging and CP weighting now. I was discussing the future of A:M with some fellows on the Hash forum–It doesn’t seem like there are as many projects going on as in the old days…. At times I feel like there are only a handful of artists and studios using this software, so I thought I should post an update.

[edit 2/12/13] I’ve been working on the textures and fur. Still some tweaking to do… Using the Muhair shader

Texturing

Just finished-up the texturing…I used 3D painter and Photoshop to paint the maps, and used Simbiont A:M materials for the gear…
