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

mental ray reders of my Thalian singing beetle's anatomy

I'm doing the set up for my singing beetle animation. Here are some mental ray renders showing the thorax and abdomen beneat the carapace. The wings on this beetle are non-functional and play an important role in how it creates it's "song". This is why they appear so thin and flimsy. Shaders are all MIA, textures are ZBrush Polypainting+Photoshop tweaking. The translucency is making me happy so far!
