Robotic 3D Design
Robotic 3D Design for Entertainment : In this class Vitaly will be focusing on demonstrating and explaining his approach and techniques for creating a solid “1st Pass” 3D Design of a robotic character for a Film or a Videogame project. 1st pass design phase is considered one of the most challenging and critical stages of a 3D design creation process. “Challenging” because fast turnarounds and yet with high quality are usually expected by the clients at the beginning of a project when there is still room for exploration and therefore this stage demands an array of skills throughout several software packages and clarity of design thinking of a task at hand. “Critical” because a properly done and a successful 1st pass design creates a definite visual target for the project early on and lays the foundation for the future iterative work on the more refined/final design version as well reduces overall cost and saves time of the asset production for the entire team while not compromising the quality.
Software and Techniques covered :
- Blockout sculpting in ZBrush
- SUBD retopo, SUBD modeling
- CAD modeling in Moi3D
- Utilizing 3D KitBash libraries
- Rendering in Octane Render
- Finalizing image in Lightroom and Photoshop
As a 3D character modeler for video games and game cinematics, Vitaly Bulgarov worked at Blizzard Entertainment on the cinematics team for Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, and the World of Warcraft franchise. As a concept designer for films, he’s created robotic designs for ILM, Dreamworks, Paramount, Lightstorm Entertainment and more, on projects including Transformers: Age of Extinction, RoboCop (2014), Terminator: Genisys, Ghost in the Shell, and the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel (2018).
After transitioning from games and movies into industrial design, Vitaly has also worked on next-generation wearable products at Intel’s New Devices Group as well as on surgical robotics at Intuitive Surgical. For the past 4 years, Vitaly has been working as the chief designer at Hankook Mirae Technology, the company responsible for building the first-ever four-meter tall mecha/robotic suit and currently developing a new humanoid and a quadruped robot. He also consults and works for Boston Dynamics, Panasonic, Microsoft, as well US military projects.
