Steampunk Hall of Faces


Found this cool site that uses a photograph to generate a 3d model of your face.. so did some 3d portraits of some of my team.. 

and created a Steampunk version of the hall of faces 
(where the faceless men keep their faces in Game of Thrones)

The image to model work is thanks to Aaron S. Jackson  and his team you can try out the website at - http://www.cs.nott.ac.uk/~psxasj/3dme/index.php

Photographs are by Meghna Menon and Shalaka Pai of Falana Films

Heres the 3d model -



and heres a video of the entire process:

Dragons are not the only thing the WhiteWalkers are turning into Wights!

Undead Motorcycle Process

Looking through my old work I realized I hadn't modeled a motorcycle in a while. So I decided to look at some bikes and figure out my next little late night project..
KTMs have been all the rage in Bangalore in the last few years so I decided to have a look at them. I lean towards the traditional motorcycle designs.. so this was new territory for me.

After a bit of browsing and allmost changing my mind, I decided to work with the form of the KTM RC8R ..

Downloaded reference images and started working on the concept in photoshop..




Not yet sure which one I'm going to follow, ribs sticking out of the top or bottom.. but anyway I started blocking out the base mesh in blender


All I need to do is detail out a few more mechanical parts and then I'll start on the "guts".
stay tuned for more updates.

UPDATE:

Heres the completed model(you can dowload it here)



I stream these modelling/sculpting sessions live at 1700UTC at the following links:
I respond to live comments during the stream.

These are the previous sessions:

Live Streams thus far


I didn't want to announce this till I was sure I could do this as a long term thing..
now that I know its doable.. here goes -

The Skechfab team invited a small group of Sketchfabbers to stream on their official twitch channel.
And while I had my doubts at first, turns out that I'm able to stream every night of the work week!
So in the last few weeks, I've done around 50 streams..

You can view the archive below(twitch doesnt archive streams indefinitely, hence I mirror broadcast to Youtube and let them sit there for eternity)



to see the full playlist click here 

I stream every night(Mon-Fri) at 1700UTC (10:30pm India)

You can view and chat with me during a stream at

You can also view the stream at the following locations:
