New blog

Hi everybody!

It's been some time since I last updated this blog. Lately, a lot of things have happened in my life like changing jobs and moving to a different city. And because of these, I couldn't find the time to make personal studies.

But now I decided to start a new, character focused blog. From now on, I won't be updating this blog. Please visit my new blog on this address:

Thank you.

Mother (contains nudity)

My latest sculpt study. At some point, poly count of the project was about 60 million polygons; so I had to delete the highest subdivision levels of some subtools. This project is still work in progress, I plan to make a low poly version with all the texture maps

This is the skin shading test for the baby. Now it is far from being from what I intend it to be.

A short animation I did some time ago. A few days ago, I corrected some problems and re-rendered it. Music and sound effects also were prepared by me.

Ghoul Warrior

A next-gen character study. I did a simple base mesh and sculpted it in Zbrush. Then retopologized the high poly mesh to prepare in-game version of the model.

Ghoul Warrior: 11740 tris with 2048 diffuse, normal, spec and alpha maps.
Axe: 1296 tris with 1024 diffuse, nm, spec maps.

Here is the high poly version rendered with Mental Ray:

And some images from the low poly version and a turntable animation:
