“Cabeza de Unamuno” de Pablo Serrano

Hoy traemos una escultura de Pablo Serrano, uno de los artistas españoles más relevantes del siglo XX, fundador del Grupo “El Paso”, movimiento de vanguardia, que introduce el arte abstracto en la España de posguerra. Su relevancia internacional se puede ver en los museos que exhiben su obra, tales como el MoMA o el Guggenheim de Nueva York, el Hirshhorn de Washington, el Centro Pompidou en París, el Hermitage en San Petersburgo o las Galerías Vaticanas y en todas las colecciones relevantes de arte moderno en España.

La escultura digitalizada es un ensayo para la cabeza del monumento a Unamuno en Salamanca. Muestra de la que se realizó una serie de 6 bronces. Estas piezas de tamaño similar a la cabeza del monumento en Salamanca tienen unas dimensiones de 28.4 x 39 x 27.3 cm.

 

El monumento representa a Miguel de Unamuno, filósofo y escritor de la generación del 98 (1898). Caminando, pensativo, con las manos a la espalda, su cuerpo se desdibuja y la atención queda en su rostro, haciendo de la cabeza el tema central del retrato.

Para digitalizarla hemos utilizado 85 fotos. Hemos construido una malla 3D de alta densidad de puntos que hemos escalado y limpiado. posteriormente lo hemos optimizado para verse online, reemplazando el detalle eliminado en este proceso por texturas obtenidas por comparación entre el modelo detallado y el simplificado.

El modelo final pasa de los 9 millones de polígonos originales a apenas 30.000, consiguiendo que se pueda ver cómodamente desde el navegador, en teléfonos, tabletas y ordenadores o en proyectos de realidad virtual como nuestro Virtual Hall.

“Unamuno Head” by Pablo Serrano

Today we bring a sculpture by Pablo Serrano, one of the most important Spanish artists of the 20th century, founder of El Paso (Group), avant-garde movement, which introduces abstract art in postwar Spain. Its international relevance can be seen in the museums that exhibit its work, such as the MoMA or the Guggenheim in New York, the Hirshhorn in Washington, the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg or the Vatican Galleries and in all relevant collections of modern art in Spain.

The digitized sculpture is a test for the head of the monument to Unamuno in Salamanca. Sample of which was realized a series of 6 bronzes. These pieces of similar size to the head of the monument in Salamanca have dimensions of 28.4 x 39 x 27.3 cm.

 

The monument represents Miguel de Unamuno, philosopher and writer of the ‘98 generation (1898). Walking, pensive, with his hands behind his back, his body blurred and attention remained on his face, becoming the head the central theme of the portrait.

To digitize it we have used 85 photos. We have built a high density 3D mesh of points that we have scaled and cleaned. Later we have optimized for viewing online, replacing the detail eliminated in this process by textures obtained by comparison between the detailed model and the simplified one.

The final model goes from the original 9 million polygons to just 30,000, making it possible to see comfortably from the browser, phones, tablets and computers or virtual reality projects like our Virtual Hall.

Benllurie - Bust of a Lady

This week we published a bust of the Spanish Mariano Benlliure, the last master of nineteenth-century realist sculpture in Spain. The bust portrays a lady of the Spanish high society of 1909, when it was portrayed in this marble of 19.5 x 23 cm base and 48 in height.

Benlliure begins at an early age, works tirelessly leaving an extensive legacy. His success came soon, winning contests of civil monuments, with orders from the Royal House and also with funerary monuments. Highlights include the monument to Emilio Castelar, the monument to General Martinez Campos, the bust of Goya or the sculptural ensemble of the Metropolis Building on Calle de Alcalá.

The scan of this bust was made from 44 photographs. For further optimization we have tested a new software, “Meshlab”, for the model retopology. Process in which we reduce the detailed model of the scan to one optimized to see online or in our Virtual Museum.

This new software we have tested after listening to the lecture “Star Wars: Battlefront and the Art of Photogrammetry” at GDC 2016. Recognized high quality graphics game where photogrammetry has been the key differentiator to reach new levels of visual realism.

The result can be seen here, in the Sketchfab viewer, by pressing the "5" key, where the mesh of this model is activated. If you compare this mesh with the latest models, you will see that it is not an orderly structure, which has many advantages in animation, but a chaotic triangulation where high quality is achieved by each polygon used. A result that in static objects like these is much more optimal for Real Time 3D and online visualization.

Benlliure - Busto de una Dama

Esta semana publicamos un busto del Valenciano Mariano Benlliure, el último maestro de la escultura realista decimonónica en España. El busto retrata una dama de la alta sociedad española de 1909, cuando fue retratada en este mármol de de 19,5 x 23 cm de base y 48 de altura.

Benlliure comienza a temprana edad, trabaja incansablemente dejando un extenso legado. Su éxito no tardó en llegar, ganando concursos para monumentos civiles, con encargos de la casa real y también con monumentos funerarios. Destacan el monumento a Emilio Castelar, el monumento al General Martínez Campos, el busto de Goya o el conjunto escultórico del Edificio Metrópolis en la Calle de Alcalá.  

El escaneado de este busto fue realizado a partir de 44 fotografías. Para su posterior optimización hemos probado un nuevo software “Meshlab”, en la retopología del modelo.  Proceso en el que reducimos el modelo detallado del escaneado a uno optimizado para ver online o en nuestro Museo Virtual

Este  nuevo software lo hemos probado tras escuchar la conferencia “Star Wars: Battlefront and the Art of Photogrammetry” del GDC 2016. reconocido juego de gran calidad gráfica donde la fotogrametría ha sido la clave diferenciadora para llegar a nuevas cotas de realismo visual.

El resultado lo podeis ver aqui mismo, en el visor de Sketchfab, presionando la tecla “5”, donde se activa la malla de este modelo. Si comparas esta malla con la de los últimos modelos, podrás ver que no se trata de una estructura ordenada, que tiene muchas ventajas en la animación, sino de una triangulación caótica donde se consigue una gran calidad por cada polígono usado. Un resultado que en objetos estáticos como estos es mucho más óptimo para 3D en Tiempo Real y visualización online.

Mao Zedong - Ceramica

En esta ocasión una cerámica del líder comunista chino Mao Zedong. El culto a la figura de este dirigente nos ha legado innumerables representaciones del mismo como un hombre del pueblo, así en la base encontramos el lema “al servicio del pueblo” “为人民服务”.

El culto a Mao promovido por Lin Biao fue una de las bases de la revolución cultural y en aquella época era habitual encontrar su imagen en todo tipo de edificios, comercios y los hogares de toda china. Aún hoy resulta habitual su imagen en los salones de muchos hogares de las áreas rurales.

Esculturas como estas fueron creadas por todo el país y es fácil encontrarlas en cualquier negocio de antigüedades o incluso nuevas copias en tiendas de arte y ceramica.

 

Para escanear esta cerámica de 57cm de alta y una base de 16 cm x 16 cm, hemos realizado una fotogrametría de 73 fotos. debido a los reflejos y brillos de la superficie esmaltada hubiese sido recomendable el uso de un filtro polarizador circular con el que eliminar de las fotos los reflejos. Como se trataba de un trabajo improvisado en uno de nuestros viajes, no disponíamos de este filtro, así que hemos construido el modelo con algunos defectos y posteriormente con trabajo manual los hemos reducido en el software de modelado 3D.

Por estos motivos hemos decidido en esta ocasión publicar el modelo solo en su versión gratuita, ya que la versión de mucho detalle no tiene la calidad adecuada para nuestros estándares.

 

¡Actualizado!:  Este modelo 3D ha sido actualizado en Mayo de 2017 con una versión más detallada donde hemos corregido la nariz de la escultura y otros pequeños detalles.

毛泽东 - Ceramic

This time a pottery of the Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong. The cult of the figure of this leader has bequeathed us innumerable representations of the same as a man of the people, so at the base we find the motto "at the service of the people" "为人民服务".

The cult of Mao promoted by Lin Biao was one of the bases of the cultural revolution and at that time it was usual to find its image in all kinds of buildings, shops and homes throughout China. Even today his image is common in the halls of many households in rural areas.

Sculptures like these were created all over the country and are easy to find in any antique business or even new copies in art and ceramic stores.

 

To scan this ceramic 57cm high and a base of 16cm x 16cm, we made a photogrammetry of 73 photos. Due to the glare and glare of the enamelled surface it would have been advisable to use a circular polarizing filter to remove the reflections from the photos. As it was an improvised work in one of our trips, we did not have this filter, so we built the model with some defects and later with manual work we have reduced it in 3D modeling software.

For these reasons we decided on this occasion to publish the model only in its free version, since the version of much detail does not have the quality suitable for our standards.

 

Updated!: This model has been reupload after some detail corrections such the flat nose. 2017/May

“Aprendiz” by Jerónimo Suñol

Today we present bust of an "apprentice" of the sculptor Jerónimo Suñol, one of the most important sculptors of his time in Spain. The sculpture is made in the stage of artistic refinement in Rome in 1878 and cast in bronze later in Barcelona. This small bust measures 43 cm high on the marble base and 22 x 21 cm in plan.

Suñol who gives passage from abstract neoclassicism to living realism, is known by the "Dante pensativo" of the Prado Museum, or popularly by the monument to Columbus in Madrid and his replica in Central Park, New York. Author also of the monuments to General O'Donnell or to the Marquess of Salamanca.

This time the digital reproduction has been made with 120 photographs. Using the techniques tested in previous models we have managed to eliminate the glare and reflections for a correct representation of the texture. Adding those features in the material definition for rendering.

In this case, the original model has 5.4 million polygons, which in the online version we have reduced to 39 thousand polygons by a retopology of the surface.
