Freebie - Gin Lounge Chair by Dome Deco by Mario Maleš



Here is the new free model I’ve been working on recently. It is not super detailed as the real Gin lounge chair is. Fabric folds are not modeled, but I hope you can put it to good use.

In Zip file you will find two 3dsmax files, 2016 and 2018 version ( Corona 3 hotfix2 ), as well as 2 fbx files ( low poly and high poly ). Modifier stack is not collapsed, so you can control the density with Turbo Smooth modifier.

To cut a long story short, here is the download link. Download it, merge it, render it, enjoy it ;)

Rocky 1 by Mario Maleš

As promised in my last post, I’m bringing to you one small tutorial on how to model rocks in zbrush.

There are many rock modeling techniques online, so this will be just one more to add in the bunch. I hope you’ll find something useful that you can use in your projects. I’m not going to explain zbrush in depth, but you should be able to follow this tutorial without any problem as the tools I’m about to show you are fairly simple.

There are 2 possible ways you can start with modeling in zbrush. One is to start in zbrush by adding a starter object ( sphere for example ), and sculpt it into the shape you want, and the second one is to make a low poly object in 3d app of your choice, and then import it into zbrush and add details. Both techniques are viable, it just depends on what you are working on.

On The Rocks by Mario Maleš

Welcome to my first project showcase post in which I will present you one of the houses I’ve designed.

Over the years, I accumulated decent amount of personal projects that are stuck somewhere between finished and “what should I do with the god damn environment” state, and since I can’t find time to make photorealistic presentation for each, I’ve decided to give them to you in their raw state. They’ve been collecting digital dust for quite some time now, and that practice has come to an end.

First project I am going to show you Is called “On the Rocks”. Now, before you start making assumptions, no, it is not alcohol related. It is a concept house, supported by a large rock, located somewhere in the mountains, wherever large boulders can be found 😊.

The idea behind this project was to create an elegant scifi-ish structure supported but harsh looking natural formation such as rocks, and by following this concept, house “on the rocks” was born, with the void instead of a ground floor, forming a large covered area that is partially used as a cover for car(s), so worry not car lovers I got you covered  (pun intended).

Simple Linear layout was taken from the “BLEK” house which you can check out on this link.

Anyway, since I’m much better designer than writer, I’m going to stop here and let you check the house. Maybe someday I’ll finish the environment and this house will be visualized properly. Until then, I’ll have a piece of mind knowing that it is finally online for other people to see it.

Tutorial on how to create rocks you see in these images will follow soon, so stay tuned.

And last but not the least, few shots of the stairs specially designed for this project.

It's blogging time by Mario Maleš


Running a blog parallel with a business can be quite tricky thing to do. Working on CGI can pull you in so deep, that you will lose time without even realizing it, so we are not going to make you a promise that this will be daily updated blog, but we’ll try not to make it a dead one at the very beginning. Don’t laugh, we know it’s a bold statement! :)

Anyway, to cut a long story short, if you visit from time to time, maybe you will find something useful, like in this case. We will open our blogging season with 2 free models.

They are done by us, so you have our permission to use them however you want, just treat them with love and respect. :)

Talk to you soon

 Take care
