    Hi!
    Thanks a lot for all the nice comments!

    Answering some of the questions:
    -Yes, I am from Portugal
    -All the images are rendered in 3DS Max with VRay, except for the Kangaroo which is rendered with Mental Ray.
    -Regarding the lighting, if you go to my website www.artofjose.com in Goodies section under Tutorials you have links to some "making ofs" in which I also talk about the light. I also explain lighting in depth in the articles of the "Boxing Kangaroo" and the "Barrio Guy" which I have written for 3D Creative magazine, but those were contracted so I can not show them, you would have to buy the magazine, sorry.

    LBelerique> Hi bud! I should have made a sketchbook thread before. I have been posting stuff separately but from now on I will keep it all together. Abraço!

    Looks awesome. Its cool how they stand on their own. They must of set you back a bit, they look pretty big.

    They are not that big (it is about 1/10th scale) Barrio Guy is 15 cm and the Welder Girl is about 17 cm. I would love to have those at 1/6th

    Thanks!

    Regarding the 3D for printing, it is not very difficult.
    You can prepare everything in ZBrush, the main things are:
    -Keep all parts of the model watertight. There should be no open polygons anywhere (under certain circumstances this can REALLY screw your model, I have learned it the hard way).
    -Try to keep the thinner parts with over 1mm of thickness (at print scale).
    -You can (and should in some cases) intersect geometry.
    -Respect the laws of physics If you want to defy these laws you will have to talk with the printing company as they can create an armature or place weights inside the sculpture to balance it.
    -If your objective is to make a mold and cast copies, you will also have to cut the model so that it can be assembled.
    -Decimate with the Decimation Master plugin before exporting to keep the file size manageable.
    -Use 3DPrint Exporter plugin and save as STL Binary to send it to the printer.

    I hope this helps!

    Clean shapes, clean 3d sculpting produces great real sculpting.
    Beautiful.

    Awesome works. !

    Those prints are superb! If I may ask: How much clean-up and assembly did you have to do? Do you have pics of the seperate parts? What company did the prints?

    Thanks for posting

    Actually I didn't have to clean up anything
    For the 3D print you can have any shape you want, you just have to separate it in pieces if you need to make a mold and copies. These 2 are just prototypes, so there was no cutting involved.

    These prints were made at Ownage.

    thx you very much for these some tips but one thing i don't understand : what does mean "watertight" ? ^^;

    also, as you have more experience with 3D print, don't you mind if i send you my zbrush file that you can inspect them for to make sure they're ok for 3D print ? ^^ if yes, i will send you from e-mail
