Artist in Action :: Scott Eaton Introduction The human figure has been central to the creation of art for thousands of years. Starting with the ancient Greeks and Romans, artists sought perfection in representation of the figure. Until the 20th century, it was the central theme of artistic endeavor and the benchmark against which artist skill was measured. Recently interest has reemerged, and especially in the applied digital arts - games, film, and commercials – where there are production demands for figurative skills. With the rise of modernism, representational figurative art fell far out of fashion and for the better part of a century art schools neglected -- if not discouraged -- it in favor of abstraction. Three approaches to Figure Sculpting Over the course of the next months we are going to work through three approaches to figurative sculpture in ZBrush. 1. We can take our time and work patiently. This is no small undertaking, but it will yield some important lessons.

3D Scanning on a Budget In this very short article I want to show you how to achieve some fairly decent 3D scans for under $200 using AgiSofts PhotoScan software.. The software its self is very simple and the photos can be taken from any positions, providing that an object to be reconstructed is visible on at least two of the images. Both image alignment and 3D model reconstruction is fully automated so there is no need for lengthy calibration processes. For this example I've used my good friend and co worker Andy Turner you can check out some of his animation work here Supermachine Here you can see Ive taken 9 photographs using my Nikon D80. And this is what it comes up with after about 10 minutes of processing the photographs The geometry can be exported and loaded into zbrush as an obj.. A close up of the raw scan data. With the background polygons removed we are left with just the head The head model above with the colour map applied Finally we have a textured highish resolution head.
Dreamy, Magical and Lighting Effects Photoshop Tutorials About nine years ago, when I started The Photoshop Roadmap, tutorials were all about special effects. In fact, no matter how ugly, any kind of effect was well received, because designers and artists were starting to discover the Web as an invaluable source of inspiration. As time went by, the need for more complex, better looking and usable effects began to prevail. Tutorials writers replied with a new wave of awesome, eye catching well designed tutorials with loads of cool ideas inside them. Some of these new wave of tutorials can be found in previous selections I made, such as The Best 80 Photoshop Text Effects on the Web, 100 Wonderful Photoshop Photo Effects Tutorials, A Complete Guide to Digital Makeover in Photoshop, 70 Horror, Blood and Gore Photoshop Effects and Brushes and Grunge and Dirty Photoshop Tutorials, Brushes and Textures. The titles pretty much explain the content of these articles. Click on each image to read the tutorial
Selective Color Photoshop Tutorial Selective color is a cool post-processing technique that can really make your subject and photo stand out. You might have seen a photo where one thing might be in color and the rest of the photo is all in monotone (black and white or sepia). Today, I’m going to show you how to achieve this effect in Photoshop by using a quick and easy technique. For this photo, I just want the red Union Jack part of the Australian flag to stand out, and the rest I want it to be in black and white. As you can see, there are other red colors present in this photo, so we need to firstly separate the Australian flag. 1.) Use the magnetic lasso tool to select the subject. Once you’re done, right click the selection and select Layer via Copy. Call this layer, Color Layer. 2.) Let’s make everything but the Australian flag black and white. You should end up with something like this: That looks good, but I just want the red Union Jack part to show. In the Edit drop down tab, change Master into Blues. Article by Yi

Then you ctrl+j to duplicate just the selected area, then ctrl+t to free transform the area. Stretch it over and down to cover what you want to remove. Then you notice that the bean bag also has to go. Ctrl+j and ctrl+t again to stretch the selection. At this point I flatten my image.
