Reaching - TOOL CD artwork, Meats Meier (3D)



Title: Reaching - TOOL CD artwork
Name: Meats Meier
Country: USA
Software: Maya, Photoshop, ZBrush

These are images that I completed for the new TOOL album "10,000" days. They are created to be viewed in 3d, and stereoscopic glasses are included in the packaging for your viewing pleasure.

I was very honored to work with Adam Jones (the guitarist and art director for TOOL) and Alex Grey, the legendary painter on this project.

I only had about five days from start to finish to create two fully animatable images and to work out the technical details of making it a stereo image. I had a lot of great help from the old school 3d master Ray Zone.

Thanks Rebecca!

Here are a few more images:

3d glasses version <if you get a chance, check it out, it's the real way it was meant to be seen>

Image 2 : Recession


-
And it's 3d glasses version:

I forgot to mention the first image was from a quick concept by Alex Grey. They let me have a lot of control in bringing it into 3d and changing certain aspects.

Most of this image is created with Mayas excellent paint effects.

The packaging showing the stereoscopic glasses, which give full 3d with full color.

I just picked up the CD yesterday and I looked through the credits and stuff and I saw your name. I am student learning 3D at school so I knew that was you when I saw you name. You do amazing work and I think it is very cool and awesome that you got to do something with Tool. They are one of my favorite bands. The stereoscopic glasses and pictures were such a cool add to the CD. This is probably the best Tool CD artwork ever!!

Very nice work. I've been hearing great things about the art on the 10,000 days cd but I wasn't aware that you were working on the project. Great art and a great album...what more can you ask for.

That's really cool. I picked up the cd yesterday and noticed the style but didnt look through the credits.
Especially cool since during your Q&A you mentioned that you listened to Tool. How was it working with Adam and Alex Grey?

Yes. This album has to be the best packaged CD ever.

the stuff is really cool. the images of the band members in the booklet is awsome a well. i love how TOOL go the effort for all this. your images are great. the recession one is really cool in 3d!

as for the album itself...not too bad...
