Grand Moff Tarkin

I have finally finished the Tarkin model. Created in 123D Sculpt+ and 123D Design on the iPad with final rendering in Sketchfab. Maybe eventually I will correct the facial and polygon errors in Zbrush. But for now it’s finished.

As always it’s best to view Sketchfab models on a PC or MAC. Shadows do not correctly display on an iPad which makes the lighting look wrong.

The End of 123D Sculpt Plus!

A selection of models that were sculpted and painted using 123D Sculpt+.

Well Autodesk have decided to scrap their brilliant app 123D Sculpt+ and think that sculptors will be happy to use their other app Tinkercad! Am I missing something here Autodesk? Tinkercad has nothing to do with sculpting and doesnt even compare or make up for what 123D Sculpt+ could do!

Why have they taken this decision? I don’t know! Obviously they can’t see how great 123D Sculpt+ is while everyone who uses it can see it’s potential! Go figure!

So my sculpting output will considerably decrease! Back to Zbrush waiting for the PC to start up! No more sculpting out and about on a an iPad tablet!

3D Sculptors like to sculpt on the go just like 2D sketch artists do Autodesk!

Blind Vampire


This is my final piece for the Sketchfab Halloween 123D Sculpt+ Challenge. As I’m involved with setting up the challenge my entry is just for fun and encouragement  and not to win anything.

Extra details were added by painting colour, bump and roughness maps on duplicate models in 123D Sculpt+ for the Sketchfab model editor.

As as always it’s best to view Sketchfab models on a PC or Mac to display the correct lighting and shadows!

Blind Vampire WIP

A blind vampire design created to encourage people to enter the Sketchfab Halloween 123D Sculpt+ Challenge. It’s still a WIP but I hope to have it finished by Halloween night. Created in 123D Sculpt+.

As always to see the correct lighting and shadows it is recommended to view Sketchfab models on a PC or Mac.

Grand Moff Tarkin WIP Update 05

Grand Moff Tarkin. Created in 123D Creature/Sculpt+.

Adjusted a few of his features in 123D Sculpt+ and added his rank badge and code cylinders using 123D Design on the iPad. Rendered using Sketchfab. I hope to have him finished soon.



Grand Moff Tarkin WIP Update 04

Grand Moff Tarkin WIP. Created in 123D Sculpt+.

I have spent about an hour on this since the last update. I’m getting very close to finishing this model. I still need to add better skin detail, dedicated bump and roughness maps as well as modelling extra details like the rank badge in 123D Design. Created in 123D Creature\Sculpt+ and rendered in Sketchfab.
