'ANATOMY FOR 3D ARTISTS' BOOK



Recently I bought this book. Nice and handy reference for sculpting the human body. Different examples of anatomy (curvy, slim, bodybuilder), all the human muscles and bones, proportions, canons...

 I miss more topology pages, probably the biggest lack of this book: just a few pages and not very descriptive.

 A video of the book to see its contents:

TUTU, ANIMATION SERIE



TUTU is a new animation serie I was working on. Lightwave 3D was used for the shading, lighting, fx and rendering. This serie was created by FICCION PRODUCCIONES (Spain) for the Spanish National TV, RTVE.

Here you are the TUTU YOUTUBE CHANNEL

RTVE TUTU link






You can download for free the Tutu APP where  Lightwave was also used

'PROTON' VAUGHAN TUTORIALS. OLDIES BUT GOLDIES



PUSHING POINTS is the site of William 'Proton' Vaughan, previously LW 'evangelist'

Maybe Proton Vaughan is not sharing so many tuts as before, but Youtube is plenty of useful tutorials for beginners (and not so beginners) with Lightwave






Interesting thread started by Vaughan at Foundation 3D  with a lot of tutorials. Maybe old but useful.
