SCULPTING WORKFLOW AND LIGHTWAVE


Since not everybody can pay what ZBRUSH costs, I suggest you another workflow using Sculptris and Blender (although Blender has its own sculpting tools, if you prefer to use them). You can export the result to an .obj file and continue using our favourite 3D tool: Lightwave 3D

-----

Como no todo el mundo puede pagar lo que vale ZBRUSH , sugerimos aquí una manera de esculpir malla usando  Sculptris y haciendo retopología con Blender (aunque Blender tiene sus propias herramientas de esculpido 3D, si lo preferís). Exportar el resultado en obj y finalizar el resultado se puede hacer con nuestro software favorito: Lightwave 3D

A quick view

NATURA by CHAMAN ANIMATION STUDIO



CHAMAN ANIMATION STUDIO is starting a 20 minutes shortfilm... but they need our help. The teaser looks great!!



Natura - The most beautiful short to be made. from felipeesquivel on Vimeo.

In their own words

"Natura is a wonderful story which we wish to tell as a short film full of action and adventure. We will use a mix of animation with real footage. It will be likeMicrocosmos meets Indiana Jones: sounds great, doesn’t it?

Like every year, we will produce a new short film with the members from Chamán Animation Studio. Our objectives are increasingly ambitious and this year is no exception since we will be combining film with realistic animation.

We want to use all our experience to make a twenty minute film. We wish to make a new short film with all of you, the fundraisers, to which you will have access, and will also include two exclusive premieres followed by a party for all the fundraisers who choose that.

Your help will be the water that will make the seed we have planted grow. We will take care of the hard work, since that is what we do best.

Natura is the story of a miniature world, a small park full of mysterious and magical things. Impulsive and cheeky, Rose, our heroine, lives within a world that is about to change. She will have to find a way to save her people and herself.

In a nutshell, Natura tells a story of adventure and solidarity. After all, we are not alone on this planet."
