Flash Light 1950
Here is a flash light I created from scratch based on the ref pic showed at the bottom of this page. I like to create low poly assets and make them look realistic in their shape, textures and overall aspect. I wanted to push some technics in Substance 3D Pt such as the anchor point functions and many others. I designed the seahorse pic and use it in the height channel to keep being close to the ref but with creating another logo. Then I used ZBrush for all the modeling, mainly with the Zmodeler brush, and also Substance 3D.

Here is a low poly car I sculpted after my own concept art I designed like you can see at the bottom of this page. I made a model sheet inspired by my concept art directly in Adobe Photoshop, and then I used it in ZBrush as a base for the sculpting, then I checked the retopology and the UV's, and I prepared all the materials in Autodesk Maya before I exported the mesh to Substance 3D Pt and then I Baked the input map and textured it. The point here was to approach through a tutorial I created for school the Bitmap mask technics and to be working using Adobe Photoshop combined with Pt, and some good ZBrush technics and workflow organisation as well.
Sonic Super Team
I created all the minis for this Sonic table top game released in Europe using 3D sculpting and printing technologies and my traditional art and molding skills. I also made the meshes retopology for these 8 characters and the texturing to help for the teaser.
Happy to share this 3D asset I made in ZBrush and Substance 3D. Here again an object I chosed to teach students some 3D hard surface technics and some procedural texturing. So here is the final visual version of the related course rendered in Iray and also Marmoset Toolbag. When I run my class I show all the process using a video projector or when it's online teaching all I explain is directly visible with screen sharing.
I created the minis for this game released, based on the specifications I received.
Mario is definitely one of my lifelong fav character, and I'm happy to present my work on this guy here, including, High def sculpting and the retopology low def using ZBrush. Showed in blue and orange coulour it's the HD version exported from ZBrush I rendered into Key shot and the retopology low def as a final rendering here in colour textured in Substance 3D Pt and rendered in Iray.
Here is the Lapin Crétin I created after the famous Ubisoft game character I like it so much! Then I wanted to reproduce Ubisoft technics and Art here to create another course for the Art and 3D class I teach at E-Tribart and ESRA. So here is presented the full process, as I used ZBrush for the sculpting + retopology and also UV's in Blender, Texturing in Substance 3D Pt, Rigging and skinning in Blender, and finaly I created a short animated sequence in Unreal Engine 5 with also some post-process effect I created to make this short clip look cool. I made also the video editing in Adobe premiere pro adding the original soundtrack of the raving rabbids I downloaded.
Mitch Pigs Demo
Here is a short demo I created from scratch to finish to get into the new update of Unreal Engine 5. And also mainly to push the envelopp of my technical knowledge using the Lumen for lighting and many other softwares I use generaly for video games and real time rendering. Then I sculpted the Pigs after a concept art I found out watching the Instagram Artist Mitch Leeuwe I really like the general cartoon style work he provides in his short reels, and as it reminds me of the Preston Blair animation books I'm totaly keen on. Then, I decided to create a 3D version of this cute little pig. So it brought me to get to create his hairs for 3D real time, which was interesting, and then I textured it, making 3 different versions out of it, like you can see, the white, pink et black pig. Finaly, I made the character set up in Blender (rigging + skinning), and an simple idle animation to brings these pigs to life. I also created the all environment, the ground using ZBrush and Quixel mixer, and I sculpted and textured the wooden planches. For the trees and the grass these are collections I downloaded from the Epic marketplace. I also added some sounds and music copyright free for the soundtrack and completed the UE cinematics with the final video editing in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Blue Moon Cristal
I created this cristal when I worked for the studio XP which is a school of video games development and its components for the 8 to 20 year olds. My role had been to create several chapters to update the online class contents of this school, and this Cristal had been one of the courses I worked on. The Studio XP use free ware and open source softwares such as Blender, Krita and also Unity, Then soon I finished with my assignement for the Studio XP, I decided to polish a bit more this Cristal to create also a complet new course using Unreal Engine 5 instead of Unity and to push some awesome UE technics to teach the students of E-Tribart and ESRA.
I sculpted in ZBrush this Link's awakening character version based on a collectible I used as a reference. As an Art and 3D teacher, I create bunches of tutorials and courses all the way, then here is a sample. I always pick subjects, or choose characters I think students would like to work on, to make students learning with pleasure, it's really important to me in my classes. Then, I chosed Link as it's a simple character in its overall shape, but also showing a mix of organic sculpting and hard surfaces, then a very good way also to introduce the Zmodeler technics. During classes and Through this Link 3D character creation process, I clearly explaine and make demo on the video projector of these following key steps : model sheet, sculpting, retopology, UV's unfolding, texturing, set up, animation (here I used Mixamo to keep it simple) and the 3D rendering.
Felix The Cat
Another collectible I created from scratch in ZBrush and I used Unreal Engine 5 and its sequencer for the 3D turntable presented here.
