Voodoo Ninja in 3D!

VoodooNinja3DMod

My good friend and fellow artist, Alex Cheparev took a character that I designed and brought it to life using Maya, a 3D modeling program. He’s been documenting and posting videos of the entire process on  his youtube channel, Crashing Maya. If you have any interest in learning how to design in 3D I highly encourage you to check out his videos and subscribe to his channel. His tutorials will really help you appreciate how much work and attention to detail go into 3D modeling. Yessir, Alex is a true wizard using evil pacts to create artificial life!

So now that Alex’s work is done, it’s my turn to jump in. Very soon I will have a 3D printed model of Voodoo Ninja for my painting pleasure. The plan is to paint this little guy and record it for my Youtube Channel. Furthermore, you can buy this model at Shapeways! That’s right ladies and gents, you can be the proud owner of you very own Voodoo Ninja model. So that’s it for news folks. Click on those links and sink some time into videos. Cheers and happy viewing!

Voodoo Ninja

Exciting things are in the works! My friend Alex Cheparev asked me to create a character for him to model in 3D for his YouTube channel. Once he’s done, we’re getting it 3D printed then I’ll paint it up for my upcoming YouTube channel. Should be pretty cool! Here’s the concept sketch and Alex’s Video. Make sure to Subscribe to his channel for all of your Maya tutorial needs!

This is Voodoo Ninja. Think black magic meets Pinocchio. I wanted to create a character with a variety of textures and a little humor. Thus the wood grain on the arms, the bandages and you can’t go wrong with a big old skull head. The plan is to add ball and socket joints in the shoulders and removable pins as weapons.


Alex is already off to a great start and it’s amazing to see how quickly he can make this character come to life. I can’t wait for the final results. It’s going to look so bad ass! Thanks for reading and keep being creative. 😉
