Either that, or he'll take the phrase "New York Minute" and make it literal in modelling terms.

Oh yes! Bring it on, I need it, but really, really challenging! Can't wait, what are you waiting for? What's the theme, what do I do, where do I go?

I'd be game over the summer break, assuming the first one or two turned out well. Definitely really interested to see what you've got planned Roberto.

Well I'll be darned if you haven't spiked my curiousity... I'm wondering what is so complex that you have in mind?

Hmmm, I'd say that's not as challenging these days really, if you get the shape right in Maya it's basically just adding lots of bubbles in ZBrush... I'm actually fairly curious what you've got in mind Robert.

You guys have it all wrong. The challenge, naturally, will be to model Roberto. As a gorgeous woman.

recently I saw an object, was nothing big or especially fancy, where I thought "hey, that would be pretty challenging to model, even with zbrush". Too bad I can't remember at all what it was. I bet the challenge will just be to model that thing...hmm I really wish my memory were better :(

The thing is that for the mini challenge that I have in mind, even Zbrush user would have to know what they are doing.

By the way, this would be an experiment, nothing ongoing.

Pure modeling.


The approach I am taking is that I want to see work that aims at the levels of the classical masters.

Hey I said it was hardcore.
