After 3 years of hard work, allot of research, help from Family, a sacrificed social life and many freelance projects to pay off this research. I have finally finished the 2nd iteration of IR’s Fullbody Scanner.
Back in 2002 as a young 3D Environment Artist I could only have ever dreamed of owning my own ‘Laser’ Scanning System. I had no Character Artist Experience, ZBrush was just a 2D painting tool. I was in debt and had no business. But in 2007 that all changed …starting my own business was a gamble but also a fortunate move, it opened up new doors to things I had never imagined.
This week I got the chance to work with the very talented Model/Dancer, Joceline Brooke-Hamilton. I was able to finally test the new studio space and the Single Shot 3D Body Capture System. Which worked really well. Together we took 100′s of poses! Joceline is very versatile and super creative, also a wonderful Ballet Dancer, so ideal to push the system to it’s limits.
After 5 days learning Softimage (big thanks to the XSI Jedi Master, Paul Smith www.bustykelp.com) and 5 days learning Arnold. Below are some test results.
Arnold is incredible. It is hands down the fastest and most intuitive rendering program on the market. It puts Vray and Mental Ray to shame.
