    Default metal sculptures

    For the previz of my metal sculptures I use ZBRUSH and since the Keyshot-Bundle I am finally able to visualize different paintings and how it will look in several environments.

    I start in 2D with Sketchbook Pro - then I vectorize and clean the letters before I extrude them in Blender. I then export it as an .obj File to bend and arrange the letters in ZBRUSH - the visualization is only a button away to transfer it to Keyshot.

    When I am happy with the result I send the DXF files of the letters to a factory that cuts out the letters in 10mm metal with a laser. Next step is to bend the letters, assemble and weld it all together before I paint the sculpture.

    Some sculptures where made with a rusty look - others with a high glossy paint.

    Those final sculptures are displayed in galeries like the STREET ART GALLERY in Dubai or the URBAN ART BIENNIAL in Germany.


    Thanks for watching.

    For my upcoming book I rendered a few sculpture designs in KEYSHOT which I created in ZBrush.
    Worked like a charme - Backplates are images I took of an iron works which is now a museum where the URBANA RT BIENNIAL took place this year and pulled over 100000 visitors in 4 months.

    I adjusted light and environment to match lighting and rendered it.
