Final project piece for my upcoming “Imaginative Sculpting” class at Uartsy.com !
Class will cover a lot of anatomy and my approach on how to study it. Plus different sculpting techniques and how to find your inspiration, stablish a conversation with the work and let it take shape. It’s going to be fun! Stuff that makes us grow as artists and can be applied to any field of figurative art.

After watching the incredible inspiring Del Toro’s movie, i decided to do my first fan art in years…
The movie really spoke to me in many ways…
Discrimination, sexism, art..and maybe it’s me but i saw a powerful message there about animal ( everything not human ) rights. The right of be left alone and don’t be abused.
I guess no one wants to see others suffering.
So pay attention to your acts
Hyper fun to work on this.
Thanks for the support throughout the process on instagram and facebook.
Orangutans are fascinating beings. Super expressive and imposing.
I tried to capture a calm wild life moment, a time of reflection. Even though life for these animals is drastically changing because of humans.
This piece pretty much evolved by itself, fueled by different sources of inspiration and reflections.
It was a really fun project where i had the freedom to explore and learn with no time restrictions..
I choose to keep both material styles as they ended up representing my own energy swings during the process, dark and light.
Tons of fun and learning on this project and Had a great overview of Maya / Arnold.
Re-sculpted the face and details, hand-painted new textures and new hair.
Special thanks to my friends Pedro Conti, Kris Costa, Guilherme Proença, and for my wife for the support
This is a personal project i did inspired on a girl i saw on the streets of my town, waiting for the bus. Of course she didn’t have the crazy arm, but she had such a cool personality on her pose, clothes and style. I wanted to keep distance from the default horrible “big boobs ultra sexy” stuff that we see all the time…
Did a quick sketch as soon as i got home and the idea started to develop by itself.
I used this project to finally introduce Substance Painter to my workflow and test the new MarmosetToolbag3 (renders straight out from Marmo3, no post! ).
Using this post for all the sketch art i’ve been doing in my spare time.
Another League of legends fan art.
Super fun project i did to study Substance and style variation.
Fully sculpted in Zbrush from scratch, retopo in Max and Topogun, render in Vray.
Piece i did for the THU challenge – 2015
Had the honor to get 2nd place with it.
I tried to portrait a moment of sharing knowledge, experiences and stories. Which is what happens at THU .
This is an illustration i did during the Beta Testing of Zbrush R7. Using 100%Zbush.
