We are posting a contest for development work that specializes with human facial modeling, texturing, animation and 3D mapping in after effects for integration into HD video work.

This work is to reconstruct a 3D facial model from a deceased celebrity whom we obtain plenty of photography of the individual as well as a generated preliminary 3D models from Face Gen and Face Shift in the animation requirements.
We are looking for photo realistic modeling, texturing and details.

View the following links for design inspiration, I would like this 3D Facial Model to be very detailed and perhaps have a design at the same quality or better.


Don't Wants:
Cartoon styled 3D models.
Ask for Sample:
Example portfolio demonstrating our desired end result will be the determining factor. Having an example 3D model of our attached photos to demonstrate to us will award an additional $100.00 bonus.
  1. 3ds Max (3D Studio Max)
  2. Autodesk Maya
  3. face gen
  4. Faceshift

is that compulsory that i have to make the same model with texture of the reference image which you have given?
or any high end 3d model?

Have you looked at using Arnold for the Skin texturing?

These renders are from a character I have modeled previously. Please advise if this is the direction you like (in regards to the skin shader and textures - the model would naturally be different).
And here is the toplogy I have used:

I just realised that this is what I was looking for "We are looking for photo realistic modeling, texturing and details." I assume this means you are looking for a high quality Head model and that the animation topology will come at a later time.

Looking for clarification. You mentioned you had the base animation topology from facegen and faceshift. Is this available to us as a base to work from? Or are you looking for a high detail concept to begin with where we would change the topology to suit your needs afterwards?

the first entry is from me. It is without texture, 3D-File of the head.

Designing a Business-Oriented Conceptualization tool: a 3D Cube to visualize market segments
We have designed a conceptualization tool using Powerpoint, which consists in a cube representing market segments and how a brand positions itself across these segments. Each of the 3 dimensions of the cube represents a way of segmenting markets (for instance geography, products, customers). The cube breaks down into many different smaller blocks along the intersection of each segmentation criterion. In other words, each smaller block (defined by a combination of product, consumer and geography) represents a specific market segment. Additionally, we have drafted a “cube within a cube” approach: you can zoom in on 1 specific geography and get a second cube, which will show market segments along three axes (product, customer and a new one: distribution channel). The design should integrate this “cube within a cube logic”. Please refer to the uploaded screens to better grasp what it means visually. The deliverable produced by the designer(s) using CAD will be used extensively by non-experts to build presentation-ready visuals in a business-oriented environment. The deliverable must meet the following requirements: - Possibility to highlight different segments with multiple colors in a flexible and user-friendly way - Possibility to visualize the cube from different angles - Possibility to easily change the labels of the different axes You can refer to the uploaded screenshots to better understand what the deliverable will look like. Important: we advise designers to focus on designing only a few visuals at first: slides A,B,E,F,G & 1 to limit the time they will have to dedicate to compete. As a second step, we will select one or two designers to produce the final deliverables, giving them extra context and information. After the contest is over, the winner may be proposed additional jobs around the project, in exchange for a competitive compensation.

modern censer Product
To take idea about the censer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Censer you can search google to see the ordinary shape of censer. Main idea: create a ( new + modern + Sleek + simple ) design for censer. I will put the inspiration for what I am looking in the next pages. I need your creativity and your sense of beauty. Here I not looking for the industrial design, I'm looking for the beauty of the external product design. your output I will give to industrial engineer to fabricated
360 Panorama Rendering
I need a model of an Office Space area created based on dwg file I have attached and then a single camera point 360 Panoramic Render. I need to be able to visualize desks chairs, tables etc. I need a test Render to be started and have the number of frames, the CPU make and model on your computer and the average time it takes a frame to render. I will be sending these off to a render farm so please deliver the specs for the highest render quality. The delivery will include: 1. CAD Model of an Office Space 2. The prepped and set up Camera Position for the 360 Panoramic render. 3. CPU Make and Model on you system 4. Test Render Specs: 1. Number of Frames 2. Average time per frame 5. Low Res Render or screen shot to show what office model looks like. 6. Quote of what this would cost regularly.
The Shield
I want to design a 3D model of the attached file, without the center yellow arabic text. The model need to be ready for 3D printing. The dimensions of the Shield are 40x40cm. And I need it to be separated into smaller parts because my 3D printer max dimensions are 30x20x20cm.
