Video Inspiration: Sigg Jones

When the heavy weight champion wrestler Sigg Jones drinks a strange Powerdrink he loses control of himself unleashing all the good he had. His Agent will have to set him straight... Sigg Jones is the name of a short movie made by three students from Supinfocom School in France. The Film was made using 3DSmax. This is one amazing fight sequence, the styles and the modeling are superb. For your viewing pleasure I have found an HD/English version (that has slightly different sound effects) of the short film, you can find the original at www.siggjones.com. Final Project: Sigg Jones from Eighth Ronin on Vimeo.

Awesome Service by Shapeways

Ever imagined how cool would it be if you had your own 3D models? Well, you can actually have it now! Shapeways, a new platform and global community for 3D-design and production, takes a major step towards the next generation of consumer co-creation with the announcement of the Shapeways Creator Engine. For the first time, consumers without 3D modeling skills can shape, mash, imprint and design their own 3D products in just a few mouse clicks at Shapeways.com.

Amazing 3D Chalk Art

I've already seen some of these sometimes before, and it's really amazing who these dudes manage to make such realistic 3D paintings, messing with nothing but our perception. And I just wonder whether or not this is just a hobbie for them, or is it their actual income source. Anyways, Julian Beever and Kurt Wenner are trully talented artists.

Bucking Fuggy

When it comes to the web, everybody is pretty much used to flash. However there’s a new technology which allows us to play 3D games in our browsers with somewhat close to Playstation 2 graphic quality. Some weeks ago I met some guys that were developing a game using a 3D plugin called Virtools. They were willing to create a website to publish and promote the game. So I joined them helping to create the web site and a blog.I have to say, the game looks fantastic, much better than anything that I’ve seen in terms of web games. It’s called Bucking Fuggy (yeah the spelling is correct) and it’s a time trial racing game. The gameplay is a bit hard but with some practice you will feel very comfortable driving the little buggy. The textures and lights are amazing, the sound is really good, and the best thing is that it loads really fast.Check out some screenshots and if you want to play it just go to buckingfuggy.com.
