Jesse Sandifer is an award winning artist who has been creating 3D digital characters for over a decade. His clients include Warner Brothers, FOX Broadcasting, and the NFL. When Autodesk and online community CGHub had a contest where digital artists could design the ultimate warrior, Sandifer took his inspiration from a snapping turtle.
Sandifer used Autodesk Mudbox to create a wire frame of a muscular, masculine figure. He was able to go through many iterations, freely experimenting with texture and detail, before arriving at the winning version of his entry. Autodesk uses the same technology in Autodesk Mudbox to power 123D Sculpt. Now creative people who are not professionals like Sandifer can just as easily get in on the action.
