    Very nice! Looking forward to seeing where you take this one.


    Seeing these renders that MM is producing in Modo makes me want to pick it up as well. I’m sure Maya can do nice renders (well, I know it can) but I’m boned if I can get it to do anything that looks half as good. Hope Modo is easier to use.

    Hi worked on this more. I wasn't planning on finishing this one off like a real person more like a sculpted bust. I'm not crazy about the eyelashes, couldn't really do something that thin on a real bust.
    Artwooki Actually this was based on Nude Youth but it does look symilar to the one you mentioned.
    mxhaunted, I really like Modo I find it very easy to use and I'm basically an idiot when it comes to these programs,as lemonnado says download the demo.
    thanks all michfemssscomp.jpg

    Default Modo

    After seeing the renders that you had produced with Modo I had to take a look at it for myself (was actually earlier ones.. not this one). The videos (half hour) that you can download off the site made me very excited about Modo. I mean really... what hobbiest modler can really afford Maya? I think that $900 for something as powerful as Modo is very tempting (and I am just an unpaid artist doing it for the fun).

    I recomend to any poor modler to check out Modo... In my experience Maya has a hard time handling high poly anyway (at least on my meagre machine (3ghz P4 1gig RAM). I would never be paying the $7,000 for Maya, but I may very well shell-out the $900 for Modo.

    Anyway, that's my two-pence worth.

    Great model Rick. I drool at your lighting. Very inspiring.

    Just nice! I like the subtle depth of field. However, the lighting now makes her neck look like a rubber neck... Is that crease correct? Looks twisted. Might be just me...

    Cheers

    PS:Cinema 4D and Final Render from Cebas are also a great combo. But more expensive together...

    PPS: XSI Foundation gives you way more than modo for 500$. However, it will take you a day or two longer to grasp the lighting. But now you can even get hair for a few bucks as a plugin!

    Monstermaker: so I was right
    Actually I've used a different Michaelangelo sketch as reference a few weeks ago, but his idealized face and profile appear in a lot of his work.

    Elixir: are you aware that Maya Complete is available for $2000? It's probably not as good for modeling as Modo though, but it has rigging, MEL, Mental Ray and a few other little things for that price, not a bad deal either... but its true strengths can only shine in a mid or large studio...

    LY: I wasn't aware of that Maya complete was $2000. Hmm..

    I think for my budget Modo is winning the race, although I have only really just started to look for decent affordable modler/renderers. I have uesd both Maya and Max in the past and think they are great. Just too pricey for me. I am a sucker for sales people who say that there modling package is made BY graphic artists FOR graphic artists. Both ZB and Modo have boasted this. I also think the guy from Modo (I forget his name.. Brent maybe) seems like a very genuine guy.

    He really did a great sales job on me. Everyone should watch the QT movies.

    Personally I would love ZB to team-up with a rendering engine company like Mental Ray.

    Cinema 4D looks good Lemo, I agree. That was another one I was looking at. The last time I looked at that it was 10 years ago on a Mac... is it still heavily geared to Mac platform?

    I like the fact that Modo is licened to the person and you can download both PC and Mac versions for your $900.

    They seem nice. More like the ZB guys, and less like a modelling giant. BTW when did Autodesk take over the world...? can we say monopoly.

    I wasn't overly keen on the first render of this. It looked nicely done but incredibly plain. But it has come together very nicely.

    Completely different to your usual work. Shows a very different aspect of your talents

    Great oldschool french deco sculpture feel to this one. This is the kinda stuff that makes you wish 3D Printing was available to the masses, would look great in many homes or in art shows.

    Firstly, let me just say it's nice to see you do something different from the usual. It looks great alredy, and will probably get to top row when it's done.
    I was just watching 'Making Michael Jackson's Thriller', and felt compelled to post this still from it, so people might see who's behind the wonderful work we see here today...

    I think he's changed a bit since then (then being 1983!)

    Hope you don't mind, Rick

    Very, very nice Rick.... nice to see your other side now and then. Here's the painting he's speaking of.... and yes its a woman but most of michelangelo's drawing were based on drawings of men. Hence, the muscular body.

    beautiful Rick!! Its nice to see you do somthing different! I really like the stlye you have captured.

    Elixir-Just to confuse you more you should look at XSI Foundation as well, for 495$ you get a FAR better sub-d modeler than MAYA and the best mental ray intergration around. Its also got simply FANTASIC CHARACTER TOOLS.

    If you are doing particle effects all day long get MAYA, if your into chacters go XSI.

    My 2cents,

    Greg

    HA, the 'rubberneck' is also in the original. I had three people bend over and look into the same direction and yes, there is a small crease. Exactly there. But way less pronounced. But what a nice rubberneck it is lol.
