Title: Science is Sexy!
Name: fan zhang
Software: Maya, mental ray, Photoshop, ZBrush
My name is Joey, I am a modeler in Lucasfilm feature Singapore. It has been a long time since I came to cgtalk last time. And this is my latest personal art work.
I wanted to create an old guy who is tired of those boring laboratory research and physics theories, finally decide to start his brand new life.
In order to understand his mindset, I took a lot of time to read his story.
The dice on his chest means he was very very unhappy about the Uncertainty Principle. His views were summed up in his famous phrase, ‘God does not play dice’. And the buckle is the Nobel Prize in Physics.
An investigation was conducted by the FBI regarding the famous physicist because of his affiliation with the Communist Party. He was a member, sponsor, or affiliated with thirty-four communist fronts between 1937-1954. He also served as honorary chairman for three communist organizations.
Also there is a Princeton’s badge on his jacket.
At first, I used Maya to make the base model then spend time in Zbush for the tiny details. I used mental ray in maya for final render. Photoshop was used for composition.
I want to thank all my good friends who gave me their feedback. And I also like to thank those people and things that make me grow up.
I will keep working on my personal stuff in future. Thanks for looking!
