A Message of Hope Through Sculpture

A shining example of using art to channel a powerful message elegantly and distinctly. Artist Felipe Eckhardt was hired to work on this image for the Salvation Army. The goal of Art Director Felipe Gomes was to convey the practice of working together to create change and help one another using the imagery of a human pyramid. To bring the idea to life Eckhardt and fellow sculptor Yago de Oliveira worked together on the modeling process, using the work of Kris Kuksi as reference for the style. Once a base mesh was created, the fine details were added in using ZBrush and from there, sent to render.

The material of the people who came to save the needy one, i used a marble material, a cleaner one. And for the needy and the environment, I use a dirt rock material, to emphasize even more the contrast between the realities.

-Felipe Echkardt

This was originally published in May 2016. We thought it was pretty cool and wanted to bring it back to the forefront as it shows the versatility of the Moho application and how different artists are using Moho.

 

 

We asked Moho Artist Emanuel Rodriguez to explain how he made his Zen Froggie GIF. And though it may seem like a simple GIF, he explains that the process is a bit more in depth. To accompany his explanation, he also shares a 2 minute time-lapse video of the actual animation process – from conception to completion. Enjoy!
