Bruno Ortolland participated in this year's SculptJanuary and shares a look behind the scenes of his entries.
Hi everyone! I’m Bruno Ortolland, I’m a 3D Artist from Paris, France. I graduated in 2010 from Supinfocom Arles France, where I co-directed the short film Hambuster. I currently work as technical supervisor at Cube Creative on the TV series Kaeloo created by Rémi Chapotot and Jean-François Henry.
My main technical field is lighting and compositing for pre-calculated 3D animations and my usual toolset to work with is a combination of 3ds Max, V-Ray and Nuke.
But I could never totally let go of sculpting and asset/character creation. I consider myself a very knowledgeable, but lazy hobbyist in 3D sculpting. In the last few years I got really interested in Open Source tools and the opportunity to use them professionally, so I learned Blender mostly in my free time.
When the SculptJanuary 2018 challenge came, I saw an opportunity to perfect my skills in sculpting, Blender, and not procrastinating too much. I was also a very long time lurker on Sketchfab, so I wanted it to be the main medium to show my sculpts for the challenge!
