Garja Singh Statues ready to post out to backers

So its taken almost a year of development and all the kickstarter support that was raised to develop these statues and it is finally time to send them out to backers. I have made 17 iterations of this model to get it production ready and sometimes it felt like it would never happen. 99 backers on kickstarter helped to make this happen so really grateful for their support.

I have been getting a lot of people contacting me to purchase models of Garja Singh but unfortunately I only have enough for Kickstarter backers. I should have more stock after Vaisakhi time so if you want to be kept up-to-date on new stock availability then please subscribe to our email list below.


Human Rights Exhibition

October 29, 2015 |  by  |  3D, 3d Printing, 3DS Max, Sculpting, Zbrush  |  No Comments

My submission for an art exhibition that will be held soon for Bapu Surat Singh a Human Rights Campaigner who is campaigning for Sikh political prisoners in punjab. It is a digital sculpture that will be 3D printed.

Bapu In Defiance
Digital Sculpt 3D Print Resin, January 2016
Size – 500mm 

The name Bapu Surat Singh evokes an image of a frail and emaciated old man. But he is more than his body. This sculpture is a tribute to the warrior spirit of Bapu Surat Singh, who despite his physical condition, remains steadfast and stoic in his fight for justice.

While his body may be frail and weak, his spirit is strong and will not be conquered

Character Armour Study

I worked on this model while doing a game character course with Alex Troufanov who works for ubisoft on the Assassins Creed games. Thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt so much along the way. All the armor patterns were painted by hand and I used some Punjabi koftgari examples as reference. below is a brief overview of the process we went through

  • Anatomy sculpting
  • hard surface modeling
  • sculpting hi-res detail
  • Re-topology
  • Baking and Normal Maps
  • texture painting

 

Hires detailing Shield - Dhaal

Hires detailing Shield – Dhaal

June 9, 2013 |  by  |  3D, 3DS Max, Modelling, Sculpting, Zbrush  |  2 Comments

I have pretty much started to remodel everything from scratch in hires without worrying about poly counts anymore. The idea is to create low poly models later and bake the detail into normal maps.

This is a standard Sikh Dhaal which has most of the major details added. It also has varying levels of damage that could be animated. For example, if the shield in the game is hit too many times by opponents then it can visually show gradual damage until it is unusable and another must be found by the player.

Hires Sword Detailing Forward Curved

I have recently been practising digital sculpting and decided to dig up this old sword model to see if I could add surface details using zbrush

I had to remodel some of the parts as the original low resolution model didn’t include all sections of the sword.

It’s not mega detailed but its good enough for a first try and will try again to see if I can improve upon it.
