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

Maya Export To Modo Test

For a fun weekend project I decided to try exporting a Maya animation into Luxology's Modo using an Alembic cache. Turns out it was pretty easy. I like rendering in Modo a lot. Painless compared to mental ray (V-Ray is still my favorite rendering system though). Anywho, this was rendered with medium quality settings and without Depth of Field or motion blur (i'll use those options in another test later on). Far from perfect of course, but not bad for a few hours work. People tell me I spend too much time on insects so, here you go! I did a spider which is an arachnid and not an insect, Happy? ;)
