Next Level 3D – Yuri

I’m a freelancer 3D artist that specializes in creating different kinds of models (mainly environments and props).

I’ve been making assets for the Unreal Engine Marketplace and the Unity Asset Store for about 3 years now. In all my works I try to create the best quality/price combinations, with accessibility to a wide range of developers.

 

Character Creator 3 releases with ZBrush, Daz3D, Iray and InstaLOD workflow

A Universal 3D Character Creation Platform for Animation, Game, AR and VR

 

Reallusion delivers Character Creator 3 Pipeline (CC3) and Iray Render Plug-in. A breakthrough in universal character creation, connecting industry-standard character solutions into one system for 3D character generation, rendering and gamification.

CC3 is a dynamic character creation system with a process to choose a highly-morphable base, morph and shape face and body, mix morphs, choose clothing, accessories and rapidly design stylized or realistic 3D characters, already set up for face and body animation.

The latest features added to Character Creator 3 include a quad-based mesh, ZBrush compatibility with GoZ, subdivision and gamification with InstaLOD, along with Iray rendering. CC3 also connects industry-leading sources for 3D character content from external 3D libraries thanks to the Transformer feature, a tool to automatically convert Daz Genesis, Poser M4 / V4, and HiveWire assets from vast content libraries, into animation-ready characters for use in iClone or other 3D applications.

State-of-the-art rendering comes to CC3 with the Iray Render Plug-in. Achieve a photo-realistic, cinematic look-and-feel with Iray, by using common film-look presets and custom controls. Produce impressive visuals with an interactive renderer that allows users to move lights, cameras and more, in real-time during progressive rendering.

Cartoons are the best way for me to share design techniques with people that can be also used in both artistic and more ‘practical’ situations. And of course, they are a lot of fun to make! I am a multimedia designer, I deal on a daily basis with different tasks involving creative communication, from illustration, to sound design and editing. I am currently using Reallusion’s CrazyTalk Animator for the majority of my project and decided to join their team of Certified Content Developers.
