Currently learning 3D modeling




This Winter Break I’m taking in as many tutorials and books as I can to learn 3D modeling in 3ds max for game art. Above is my first complete car that I made into a little custom gift thanks to shapeways. 3D modeling is very challenging but also very rewarding, I mean how cool is it to think about something, build it and then get to interact with it in the virtual or physical world. Almost makes me want to be an engineer except I don’t think I’ll be able to find funding for dragon lairs and plasma race cars o.o

This piece is a 3Dimensional heart installation. (These are just a few detail pics)


The Bottles are wombs of Addiction/Need/Poverty,
Doubt crawls around
Wraps into Insecurity around like Silk
Inside Love shape shifts through insecurity, need, desire
Sometimes it forms completely into the broken, ratchet, butterfly
Cunning, Swift, Hunter, Impoverished, It needs, Its broken
Sometimes it drowns before it is born
or suffocates without attention
or too broken to escape it’s own constraints

The Needles are Contingency
Beauty grows within them,
It is not perfect, it grows from dirt
It only feins perfection with bright color
Beauty only exits when Need, Desire, and Love finds it

Love searches for Beauty
Much more rare than Love
He was begotten as the son of Poverty and Contrivance on Aphrodite’s birthday
From Poverty he is lacking, but from Contrivance he is always seeking.
One must not confuse Love with Love’s object
