3DAD 005 : All About ZBrush with Les Garner from Sixus1 Media and ZBrush Webinar Offer

In this session we interview Les Garner from Sixus1Media which provides a quality set of services for 3D modeling, texturing, rigging & animation.

It is a family run business involving his wife Rebekah and now son in producing content that quite a few of the artists interviewed in the pages of the 3D Art Direct magazine have used and rated highly!

Les has operated his business for over twelve years later, having turned out probably more original figures/characters than anyone else in the business. Prior to getting into digital art and 3d, Les was a comic book illustrator and airbrush artist, which he still provides as services in Sixus1Media today.  And if you look at the content that he produces, it will confirm to you that the character aspect of the work has always the major artistic focus for his business.

In this interview with Les we talk about  Z-Brush, a digital sculpting tool which has superb advantages in creating 3D models.

Most importantly 3D Art Direct and Sixus1Media will be presenting a live webinar for an introduction to using ZBrush. So if you’ve wondered about using this software or have struggled in using the unique interface, this is the webinar for you.… Read the rest

Melissa Krauss Interview

This month’s premium edition of the 3D Art Direct Magazine, out on Sunday the 29th of August, will feature a popular Poser artist, Melissa Krauss.  

Melissa has been involved with the internet from the beginning. Her specialty has been creating artwork that features well defined and striking female characters. Her artwork Influences include text based role-playing games and the natural environment of the forest. Here’s a segment from the interview:-

3DAD: It’s great to see many well defined female characters in your work, have you helped inspire other women in digital art because of this?
MK:I truly hope so. You see so many female characters in stereo-typical fantasy art settings, but so few with true depth.
3DAD: You have a category of “angels” in your Deviant art gallery with some fantastic imagery– what’s the influence in creating so many angel figures?
MK: I have always been a spiritual person, but not particularly religious. Angels, specifically archangels, are one of the mystical creatures that fascinate me. I have heard them described as both terrible and beautiful, having envisioned them that way myself.  That is such an elusive, ethereal combination to try and capture in an image. I feel as if I never quite capture it, so I feel compelled to keep trying.
