Have you ever made a sculpture with an apple?
I did, sooo many times!!
But yesterday I tried to make something different, something new!
And this short video is come out, take a look! What do you think? :)

Another test with Camera Tracking and my 3D model, the human head of Adam :O

And I took this other video at the bus stop waiting for the bus!
This time, just 2D tracking, in AfterFX

Well, sometimes introduce the artist could be useful to understand better his works, for understand some of his choices, maybe that's why we learn about life and biography of the great artists of the past.
But in this case, when a simple guy like me doesn't have a particular history and he never takes particular choices, instead, you only need to know his works first, so you can then understand more the insane mind behind it.
So, i hope you can know me through my works, and then, if you have some clue about my ID, please just let me know it :)

Enjoy my visions.…


Some technical Info:
I come from a Traditional Art school, where i praticed drawing from live, and learned to modeling the clay.
Now i'm studying Computer Graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, in Milan, where i live. But i'm original from Sicily.
Expecially i prefer 3D modeling and animation, for game or movie stuff, using softwares like Autodesk Maya, Pixologic ZBrush, UDK ecc.. Also, some notion of film making, and visual effects.
But are all stuff that i must still learn, for now i'm just a beginner.

A cairn of you by hellmancrow
A cairn of you
This is just one of the pieces of the incoming series of drawings with this kind of subject, which is.. hard to explain xD
They are heads mostly, blended with the landscape, they ARE the landscape. Pieces of rock, trees, homes..
I don't know when I started to do that or why, maybe because of the connection I have with my land, that is part of me the same as I am part of it.
Common elements in these works will be the body as part of the nature, the nature as part of the soul, and the landscape as part of the identity of every human being.

In this particular work the main character might be Death. There is this huge head /cairn, a sort of crypt perhaps, It just make me think that it could conceal a dead body. I'm not a religious man, despite that cross on top of it, which is just a symbol, and I feel like the soul is something that belong to the nature along with our body.
But, basing on all the elements above I will let to you guys the task to interpret this picture in the way you better feel it.

I know, this is not my typical style, I just wanted to try and have fun participating to this "draw my OCs contest" ^ ^
Adam and Eve
I did the Man first, then, with some cut and a large retouch I've turned him in a she, like some kind of Adam and Eve. As reference I didn't used no pictures, I've used all the methods learned at my traditional anatomy class, converting them from 2D to 3D as exam's project.

Modeled in .......... Maya
A retouch in ......... ZBrush
Rendered in ........ KeyShot
A retouch in ......... Photoshop
