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

Mecxican Honey Wasp (Brachygastra mellifica) model rendered in Octane for Maya.





Some renders of a ZBrush model I created. This was done for a tutorial in Issue 88 of 3D Artist magazine. This is a model of the Mexican honey wasp - yes a wasp that makes honey!! - many thanks to Alex Wild who sent me a couple specimens. I was able to examine the model closely using my microscope, tried to make it as accurate as possible. Check out Alex's article on his twitter feed : https://twitter.com/myrmecos/status/559414277753163777

Here are a few screen grabs from Nuke and Maya:
