Talented creature and character creator, Eternity-NU, shares images from his Demon of the Forest project, some pin-ups and a lot more...
3dtotal: Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you, what do you do, and where are you located?
Hi there. My name is NU or Eternity-NU. I live in Thailand. I'm currently working as a 3D model supervisor at Picture This Animation
in Thailand. I'm working on animation series / TV commercial work such as LEGO. I'm also teaching at Digitalbox Cg
and Sripatum University
. Occasionally, I work for some foreign companies as a freelance artist; for instance to model for 3D printing, on animation series, TV commercials and cinematics.
3dt: What are your artistic ambitions?
When I was young, I watched the Disney
movie The Lion King
which impressed and inspired me so much. Since then, I have earnestly studied and created art.
3dt: Tell us the story behind your recent gallery entry, Demon of the Forest. What inspired you to create it?
Actually, I like every style of 3D model, no matter if it is cartoony, realistic or hard-surface. It is the passion in 3D models. By the way, my collection will be inspired by common things around us like a tree, insects, people. I like to observe everything around us and use those elements to design my work.
3dt: Did you face any difficulties when creating this image, and how did you overcome them?
Most of the time, I have to handle so many projects. I always talk to the client and director about the job description, and work closely with the client and director to help understand their needs.
Sometimes I have trouble with my own characters, as it seems weird to create from my own sketch. I usually solve the problem by roughly sculpting in ZBrush
so I can see every angle and outline. For example, I move the legs backwards, add more muscle. It's like traditional sculpt problem-solving.
