I am the founder of Above the Clouds, a company based around working with other creatives to bring their designs to life. Located in Los Angeles, we are a studio that specializes in 3D work. Ranging from architectural design creating renders and fly throughs for real estate and architectural firms, to modeling/texturing/animating for games, television, or mobile, to also making your idea a reality with 3D printing. We strive to push forward creating amazing work with talented artist.
I have had the privilege of collaborating with some extremely talented people in bringing there designs to life. Working closely with artist to interpret their 2D sketches, into a 3D figurine that will later be printed is an exciting task to take on. These figurines are considered "collectible toys," with limited runs of as rare as 1 made, to as high as a few hundred. I've been a long time fan of these artist, and their work has inspired me throughout my career, so it made the figure that much sweeter to create. I truly appreciate that at this stage in my art career, I have the opportunity to work with some of my favorite artist.
Below is a reel of some of my latest projects.
Using a combination of 3D Max and ZBrush, I am able to fine tune the models and be able to create micro details onto the mesh. All files are "watertight," and ready to be printed as a single mesh with clean geometry. It is a freeing feeling in creating these specific models because I am able to be generous with my polycount, and detail. Whatever I would like to add, I can, and it will be printed. If you have the right tools for producing quality figures, amazing models can be printed and appreciated in real life.
Most of my artwork is on a computer, and being able to see, and touch something I have created digitally, is a rewarding experience. Every one of my models has a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that go into them, and with digital work something you've worked on for months, may only be seen for a few seconds. It is a nice feeling to know something I created is now a tangible, real world piece of art that will be appreciated and viewed for years to come.
I am always open to collaborating with more artist. If you are interested in getting a design 3D modeled, or printed, please feel free to contact me below about any inquiries. Hope to hear from you!
