Sculpting Inspiration - Rafael Grassetti

So.... I been quite interested in sculpting ever since I learned that it is where a lot of concept work and where a lot of "from scratch" modeling is done these days.

Experiencing Sculptris myself, and collaborating with others on Zbrush, has proven to be a most liberating experience. You basically no longer have the corellation issues with 2D and 3D art design when you can "sketch" in Zbrush as my collaborators call it.

Anyways, while looking around for learning material and stuff to further my own study I came across this:

I obviously don't know if there is some kind of global ranking of the world's 3D sculptors. But this guy is probably in the world's Top 10 for sure.

Enjoy.

It's because I know I will never be this good that I don't bother starting.

Ha ha, yeah I know what you mean. However I am rigging in Maya atm and looking at stuff like this makes me want to drop everything and just sketch and sculpt!

Just had to add Kris Costa on here. Definitely one of my favourite sculptors/artists.

And 90% of this stuff is over 5 years old!

That's surprising because Grassetti was several times plugged here on a frontpage.

Including at times being plugged indirectly.. like when "Mass Effect" characters happen to be on the front page because a new game is coming out or something.

Seeing the others, I still like Grossetti's work more.... but I guess everybody's got their favorites.

Wow. Yeah, this guy is amazing. There is a point where you can only get so good at a one point of detail. and this is defiantly it.

What's more is that all his stuff looks like each sculpt looks like it should have taken a long time to make.

But the sheer volume of his output... and the amount of personality and dynamism he is able to put into them is astounding.

When one thinks about bridging 2D art and 3D art, I think this guy is one of the best examples, because many of his sculpts "pose" like 2D art figures judging from the photos he put up.

...Except the barbarian woman.. that one looks like "the one that never quite worked out"... but everything else is fantastic.

Yeah your defiantly right. And its amazing that he does real clay sculpting. a lot harder to me to do. He is truly inspiring.

And im pretty sure Grasetti is around 25 years old or something like this. age vs skill hes gotta be the best in the industry.

If you visit Zbrush Central you'll see that there are quite a few people working at this very high standard. For anyone with an interest in anatomy and digital sculpture, I recommend checking out Scott Eaton. http://www.scott-eaton.com/category/digital-sculpture
