Old Photo Gallery3Waygg Boxer

Zbrush BPR Pass and Photoshop paint over.

John L. Sullivan was a boxing immortal, the link between bare knuckles and glove fighting, and the first great American sports idol.So here is my 3D rendition of what he may have  appeared like . From an early age, Sullivan showed great proficiency with his fists. As a teenager, he would fight in Boston barrooms, issuing a challenge that he “could kick any mans ass in the house.”

Thanks for stopping by, Michael.

Foodies Restaurant Concept Plan

Foodies Final Gallery

Layout Outside 3WayLayout inside3Way Inside Final

Restaurant Mock Up Conceptual Plan .These type of behemoth  restaurant floor plans are a thing of the past. The risk of square footage building costs,demographics and competition of other  dining establishments  alone make it a risky investment unless your one of corporate food  giants. This is the type of industry where you have to put your ego in check and have to have a solid plan both front and back of the house. Partially The reason why food trucks have become so  popular.I can say all this because i am a recovering Restaurant guy. “Foodies” was an actual name of a place it was a family members , the look was slightly different but i believe he would have approved of this. I do miss the hype of the food business .

Casa De Prado_small

Balboa park Sketch

Living in San Diego has many advantages such as one of the worlds most beautiful parks available within a 20 minute drive from where I live. Using the museum of man in Balboa Park as a reference guide for my Base mesh/sketch. My goal is to take this base mesh 3D model and incorporate into a large scene with heavy foliage. So far the base mesh has been modeled in Sketchup. I used  Cinema 4D for final rendering.
