in 3D Modeling Design held by merx
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
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. 3D Studio Max
  2. Autodesk Maya
  3. face gen
  4. Faceshift

#1 Face by Abbasi 3D-Services
Hello, It is a comedy face made with inspiration of the pictures, but it has no colors or texture. I am not good enough with coloring. Maybe another one can do it, but i do just the model.

This is a 3D model of my face :) . I've put my photo and designed a 3D model on autodesk maya 2013 and then using my photos i've textured the model on the 3D model in ZBrush 4R6

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.
Mon, 15 Dec 2014 16:22:36 +0000
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.
Survival gear/Knife design
Working on a survival oriented product, Looking for a professional preferably with experience in the niche to finalize a design and make realistic HQ renderings of the finished product/product parts.
3D Geometrical jewlery design
We would like to create distinct silver jewelry for mature and modern women (35-65 years) with taste for fine jewelry, which is minimal, modern and timeless. Icon: celebrating realistic animal figures made with repetitive geometric pattern like triangle, rhombus etc. similar to the Cartier panther ring in the project brief. 1st collection is featuring OWL. Setting: To achieve high jewelry look, use of Channel, Mystery setting and micro pave is highly encouraged. Size and dimensions: Use of OWL head should be between 20mm-45mm across different jewelry elements. Stone Size: As we use semi-precious stones there are no stone size limitations, This project is a test to select right candidates for our on-going long-term project. We welcome talented designers from across the world, but candidates with experience in Italian market would be preferred. Please align your sketch with us, before proceeding to 3D modeling. Files to be in STL and 3DM format.
Project Details: We have a design for small wearable sensor that was to be worn on the wrist. We've had 500 testing devices produced and now we're looking to redesign it so that it can also be comfortably gripped in the hand. The internal specs will stay the same because we only want to improve the external aesthetics and form factor. We're looking to start with conceptual sketches and then narrow down on 2 rough directions and then a final design. Deliverables include: sketches, 3D rendered images, files for 3D printing mockups and final production CAD designs. You should have experience with consumer friendly products. Familiarity with electronics and rubberized materials is a plus. The casing (and its incorporated device) is to fit in the palm of the hand. It is held there by means of a strap, much like a watch, but equipped with Velcro so that it can be easily adjusted. The casing itself needs to be shaped so that it can be very comfortably held, hand gently closed. The shape is novel, and the material, attractive to the touch, may be slightly compressible as in rubber or silicone. The casing should have two openings, on the on/off button, the other for recharging the battery (a phone recharger port). The dimensions of the device to be encased are: 1 ½” X 1 9/16” X 5/8 “ Sample images of the current iteration have been attached.
Modeling & Graphic Design for a Modern Landfill
We are looking for some one to design a complete landfill for use on our Tradeshow booth. We are looking for someone who can layout the entire site. From the waste cell to the roads, to the working face of the landfill and Leachate systems, liners etc. We would also like to incorporate our equipment and products into the design. This is mostly for Leachate. What we are attempting to do is show how to Waste Companies can handle their leachate to save money. There are 3 steps to this process. The first is minimization. We have developed a spray on solution that will repel water from the side slopes of the landfill and on the flat top of the landfill. Ideally we show a rain cloud raining down on the side of the landfill here and then we can have our graphic artists do bubbles on the rendering showing where that product is used. The second part we do is pre-treatment. We have designed a system that can process and clean the leachate. The leachate is pumped from the bottom of the landfill to holding tanks where we clean it from there it goes to Leachate ponds where our Evaporation Misting Equipment evaporates the water. We also have the leachate evaporated inside buildings. Ideally we want to show the daily operations of a landfill and where all of our products are used on that landfill. Visiting our website will give you a very in-depth look at what we do Attached are some samples of how landfills have been rendered in the past as well as a top view of a modern landfill in California. Also included is a aerial photo of a landfill cell being built with liner and a side view of all the layers that go into a landfill. If you have any questions or need more details please leave note This image will be blown up to fit a booth that is 5'6" high and 113" wide
