Shellhead

Heya, gangaliciousnesses-

Hope ya had a nice relaxing Labor Day weekend!

Here's a 3d sculpt that my pal Luis Gomez-Guzman hooked up.

He hit me up with an email out of the blue to show me he had begun the sculpt of the Ironman illustration I had posted some time back. I was wowed by what I saw. Luis asked me to make notes, so he can get it closer to how I drew, and he also asked me to design the back for him to model from, so the top right pic is me drawing over his screen cap.



I tracked down some of Luis' links to share with ya. He's such an amazing artist.

One of my favorites from him is his Award Winning Animation Short-Film "Garto"


Here's Luis' blog
Please give him props when you get a moment!

Hope ya digs!

Amazing. You're design is translated so well. What an amazing modeler. Would kill to see this put into the hands of some animators and brought to life. Love your work, Sean.

Draw Monkey said...

Hey, nice. Now make it move. And get Robert Downey to do the voice. And then make a movie. And then call me when it's out.

That's a seriously good render. Bang on really.

so goood!!!

Wayne B. Medina said...

that's cool. you know you can make a 3d render print out..meaning make a sculpt out of that with the 3d file. we did it for one of character in our animation short for school.

Ken Knafou said...

That's badass! The fact that it works so well in 3D is a testament to your designs. These kind of collabos are what make the internet a wonderful thing.

Carlos said...

How cool is this!!!! A great 3D conversion of your design, impressive!!!

AnthonyBaker said...

OMG. Beautiful.

You should show the folks at Marvel (or hell, DC) this right now and do more. I would gladly pay heaps of money for such warez. And this coming from a guy who doesn't own a single comic-based statue (though I am considering Paul Pope's Batman Y100 B&W statue).

Seriously. Amazing.

J. Arturo Ramírez said...

Oooraaleee!!! That´s amazing, would look like figure painted by ¨JAR¨?, hehehe..., It would be an honor to paint a Master as this the print, greetings Sean, remember me?

B C E said...

Whaaat?! You just had to go and do it didn't you?! I'm in awe my friend. Kudos to you and Luis for a fantastic looking piece of work!

VHS said...

How cool is that?? Very cool, that's what. Love your design for IM.

Adam Gard said...

Stellar! Would love to see that as a maquette we could get a hold of and stick on our desks. Inspiring for sure and love how the graphic qualities were kept intact on the 3D model.

Chris Battle said...

Holy shit! Time for Mr. Stark to make a guest appearance on Spider-Man...

Ryan Green said...

This one model is enough to get the ball rolling on a 3D Ironman series. Go pitch it, if you haven't already...

Josh Frost said...

Genevieve Tsai said...

OMG This is incredible!! He modeled it perfectly; Luis is so talented! This would be such an awesome statue to have. Your designs translate so well to 3D and I think your design of Iron Man is way cooler than the original, haha!
