Me: Eric Keller

Hi and welcome to my Blog. This is a hastily compiled record of my digital art and computer graphics experiments. I am a freelance CG artist living and working in Hollywood CA. I have written several books on Maya and ZBrush. Below my blog you'll find links to the books and tutorials I have authored and co-authored. I also occasionally teach at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects in Hollywood.I named my blog "Bloopatone" in honor of my first dog "Blue". She passed away a few years ago and I still miss her even though she was very grouchy and liked to bite me!

I'm proud to be an instructor at The Gnomon School of Visual Effects in Hollywood. Take a look at the work of our students and instructors on the Gnomon School Blog and the Gnomon Workshop Blog

additional renders

Working out the anaomy of solenopsis (stinger not included in these images). I tried to get the post petiole correct based on reference from books and the interent, possibly I dodn't have quite the right scale or maybe it is to closely attached to the abdomen:

here' is a link to one of the image I used for reference:

Here is a close up of the face of my model (needs hair still):

I think I need to round the top of the head more, may have gotten a little exaggerated during sculpting

Here is one of the reference image I used:

  1. Would high resolution photos of the post petiole help out? pretty common around here and getting some shots at a bit better than 3:1 is within my powers. What angles would be most helpful if so? My email is Seth dot burgess at gmail dot com if I could be of assistance.

    Amazing modeling and renders in any case!
