These models were generated using radiographic data and segmentation software (3DSlicer / Osirix) to create high fidelity geometry.
Raw models from this method typically contain poor geometry and artifacts from the imaging, so my work flow includes clean up and retopology within ZBrush.
Once the models are optimized they can be sculpted to recreate fine details and restore any missing pieces.
Software Used: 3DSlicer, Pixologic ZBrush
Data from a CT scan of a woman who suffered a tibial fracture as a result of a traffic collision. Surgical hardware was hand sculpted and placed using X-ray reference images.
Generated from CT data from the female set of the Visible Human Project.
An example of the typical work flow from raw data (left) to complete model (right).
Surgical Illustration of curettage of a right index proximal phalanx enchondroma (Ollier's disease).
Surgery was observed in the operating room, sketches and models generated from notes and photos taken during operation.
Software Used: Pixologic ZBrush, Cinema4D, Adobe Illustrator
3D hand modeled in ZBrush, prior to positioning.
Early plan of how to present the operation, with radiographs used as reference.
Rendering of the sandfly Phlebotomus papatasi taking a blood meal for use in a mock scientific journal.
Referenced previous illustrations, photography, and direct observations under a dissecting microscope.
Software Used: Adobe Illustrator, Pixologic ZBrush, Cinema4D
A master study of Michelangelo's Pieta, modeled in ZBrush and rendered in Cinema4D.
Challenge: Recreate a sculpture using only photographs as reference
Software Used: Pixologic ZBrush, Cinema4D
A personal project I began with the intent of developing my ZBrush skills in modeling realistic facial expressions and articles of clothing.
I chose Danny Devito, specifically his character Frank Reynolds from Always Sunny in Philadelphia, for his very distinct look and amusing costume design.
Renders are simply quick exports from ZBrush as this was more modeling practice and I wasn't concerned with making a supremely finished project.
