aNTROPUs is a 3d animator/modeler that makes some very interesting pictures. There was an animated short that caught my eye called, "The Plumber" ( it's in .rar format, if you don't have the software to view it, you can get it here (Mac) or here (PC) )

doh! I hit the post button instead of the preview button.

Anyway, I was going to finish up by saying

blah, blah, blah, something nice, something nice, blah, blah...yeah he kicks some major booty in 3d modeling. CYAKBYE!

The "interesting" link contains animcated nudity.

Sort of... it's a machine.

Really amazing artwork.

That's some awesome facial animation in "The Plumber." I'm glad to see he's getting Hollywood work now.

zelphi - ah CRAP! I'm so sorry!!! I hope I didn't get you in trouble at work!!! my bad!

That is cool.

[On little bit of a nit-pick, from the interview in your second link, isn't "Antropus" the nickname of a prominent CG artist--the Brazilian guy--and "ZBrush" the name of the actual program he's used to make this stuff?]

Antropus is the Brazilian Guy...like I said, I hit "post" instead of preview or I would have finished that up...(hits head again...doh!)

zbrush is a 3d proggy he uses (one of many). I like that program myself, but it's hard as hell to use

Hands of Manos: i can't tell if you're being sarcastic, but I don't care about the nudity and think these animations are great. Thanks for the link!

zelphi - being dead serious. I'd hate to get someone in trouble at work!

Check out his other works at CGTalk. In any case, how does a modeler come up with pictures?!

Gyan = I've got a 1,000 running around in my head...but I'm still teaching myself Cinema 4d right now (my 3d modeler of choice). But I make pictures all the time in Adobe Illustrator.

Gyan, login required on that link.

What do you mean how does he come up with pictures? He renders them from his 3D app.

Hands, hands. Thanks for the link. This looks like a pretty amazing modeler from those pics. But please let two or more people add a comment before chiming in again. Trust me on this.

Minor nitpick to an otherwise solid post: the way it's phrased makes it sound like aNTROPUS was a 3d modelling application. Should've been "aNTROPUS is a 3D animator/modeler who makes.."

Hands: I wrote that before you cleared up what(?who?) antropus is. How does a modeler (as in modelling app) come up with pictures, as opposed to a rendering engine?

It seems his site has all his work, so never mind.

Signal - yeah I know...I wish I'd not hit the "post" button and just the preview button (I wasn't finished putting my sentence structure together)...but, well....I won't next time ;)

Gyan - oh! oops. glad you found it.

Ah, I get it now. For those playing at home, please change my "This looks like" to "He looks like."

just FYI, stuffit expander (which most mac users have) opens .rar files fine.

Hands: love this!

I think it's worth mentioning that by clicking around on someone's profile, I ended up getting to a bunch of portfolios for illustrators and photographers who happen to be really good.

I just spent about an hour looking through them all. Impressive stuff.

icey. they are impressive indeed and I've made it a point to not promote one of them for two reasons.

1. I'm self promoting my agency (which is an unwritten "no-no" at mefi)
2. I don't want to promote the SOB's and lose jobs to them (ha!)

but, all that said...yes there are some great folks there...Sashimi makes me want to eat my pencils

Oh hell yeah...

Thirded...

Nice interface, too, of course.
