“Aprendiz” de Jerónimo Suñol

Hoy presentamos busto de un “aprendiz” del escultor Jerónimo Suñol, uno de los más relevantes escultores escultores de su momento en España. La escultura está hecha en su etapa de perfeccionamiento artístico en Roma en 1978 y fundida en bronce posteriormente en Barcelona. Este pequeño busto de mide 43 cm de alto sobre la base de mármol y mide 22 x 21 cm en planta.

Suñol quien da paso del neoclasicismo abstracto al realismo viviente, es conocido por el “Dante pensativo” del Museo del Prado, o popularmente por el monumento a Colón en Madrid Y su réplica en Central Park, Nueva York. Autor también de los monumentos al general O’Donnell o al marqués de Salamanca.

En esta ocasión la reproducción digital ha sido realizada con 120 fotografías. Utilizando las técnicas ensayadas en modelos anteriores hemos conseguido eliminar los brillos y reflejos para una correcta representación de la textura. añadiendo esas características en la definición del material para el renderizado.

En este caso el modelo original cuenta con 5,4 millones de polígonos que en la versión online hemos reducido a 39 mil polígonos mediante una retopología de la superficie.

Jerónimo Suñol 作品:Aprendiz

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 1978 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.

El Adán de Rodin

Nuestra segunda pieza para esta colección de escultura es una miniatura del Adán de Rodín. Esta pieza de menor escala que la original, 56cm, parece ser una prueba previa a la escultura de Adán finalmente realizada en 1881 para colocar a los lados de “La puerta del infierno”.  Aunque parece que antes de este encargo, Rodín ya la había expuesto como “la creación del hombre”.

Hay obvias diferencias entre la escultura final y esta prueba especialmente en la cabeza o la mano izquierda, pero la composición y conceptos ya estaban claros. La mano derecha un vínculo claro a “La creación de Adán” de Miguel Ángel, permanece igual.

Para este nuevo modelo hemos empleado 126 fotografías, con las que hemos generado un modelo de 4,3 millones de polígonos. Modelo al que hemos optimizado para su versión online o en tiempo real a 39 mil polígonos. El modelo está listo para su descarga gratuita desde Sketchfab, y la versión de alta resolución para su uso profesional en Snaptank.

罗丹(Rodin)作品:亚当

Our second piece for this sculpture collection is a miniature of Rodin's Adam. This piece of smaller scale than the original, 56cm, seems to be a pre-test to the sculpture of Adam finally made in 1881 to place on the sides of "The Gates of Hell". Although it seems that before this assignment, Rodin already had exposed like "the creation of the man".

There are obvious differences between the final sculpture and this test, especially in the head or left hand, but the composition and concepts were already clear. The right hand a clear link to Michelangelo's "The Creation of Adam" remains the same.

For this new model we have used 126 photographs, with which we have generated a model of 4.3 million polygons. Model that we have optimized for its online version to 39 thousand polygons. The model is ready for free download from Sketchfab, and the high resolution version for professional use at Snaptank.

Juan Bordes, Sculpture

Today in our blog we start a new series of articles with sculptures that we have scanned in 3D. With this initiative we want to continue sharing from Moøkan our work, especially in the field of cultural diffusion and promotion. Thanks to the agreement with some of our clients we will share some of the sculptures of their private collections giving public access to them in a digital environment.

We have chosen to start, the most contemporary of this series. A complete body of sculptor and architect Juan Bordes, A 46 cm piece in bronze lacquered in white.

The sculptor, member of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando and author among other publications "History of the human figure: drawing, anatomy, proportion, physiognomy". He is one of the greatest theoreticians on the human figure and its representation. Which is why we chose this sculpture to start this series.

The model was made by photogrammetry. Using 117 photos and generating a detailed model of 10 million polygons and an 8k texture. The version presented here, designed for web, has been simplified to 36 thousand polygons after been retopologized, and two textures, the color (diffuse) and the normal map, that collects the information lost in the polygons reduction.

Juan Bordes, escultura

Hoy en nuestro blog empezamos una nueva serie de artículos con esculturas que hemos escaneado en 3D. Con esta iniciativa desde Moøkan queremos seguir compartiendo nuestro trabajo, especialmente en el ámbito de la divulgación cultural. Gracias al acuerdo con algunos de nuestros clientes vamos a compartir algunas de las esculturas de sus colecciones privadas dando acceso público a ellas en un entorno digital.

Hemos elegido para empezar, la más contemporánea de esta serie. Un cuerpo completo del escultor y arquitecto Juan Bordes, Una pieza de 46 cm en bronce y lacada en blanco.

El escultor, miembro de  la Real Academia de las Bellas Artes de San Fernando y autor entre otras publicaciones “Historia de la figura humana: el dibujo, la anatomía,la proporción, la fisiognomía” es en uno de los mayores teóricos sobre la figura humana y su representación. motivo por el que hemos elegido esta escultura para empezar esta serie.

El modelo lo hemos realizado por fotogrametría. Empleando 117 fotos y generando un modelo detallado de 10 millones de polígonos y una textura de 8k. La aquí expuesta, su versión web, ha sido simplificada a 36 mil polígonos tras una retopologia; y dos texturas: la de color y el mapa normal, que recoge la información perdida en la reducción de polígonos.

Fotoescultura y fotogrametría un salto de 150 años.

La fotogrametría es una técnica moderna de la captura digital de modelos reales, de la que ya hemos hablado anteriormente en este blog. técnica con la que trabajamos en la reconstrucción de esculturas o edificios. Esta técnica analiza un grupo de fotos de un modelo de diversos puntos de vista y con ellas y bastantes operaciones de triangulación obtenemos un modelo automático en 3D.

El modelo resultante gracias a la impresión 3D no queda limitado al mundo digital sino que puede materializarse como una escultura en un proceso también automatico. Esto que hoy día es posible gracias a la tecnología actual, pero fue imaginado de forma similar por Fraçoise Willème en 1860. Lo llamo fotoescultura, una técnica que necesitaba aun de mucha mano humana pero que realmente soñaba industrializar la escultura.

La fotoescultura llegó a tener cierta fama en su época y retrató a la corte imperial francesa, o a la corte española de Isabel II por su socio en España Jean Laurent. Lamentablemente esta técnica tenía un elevado coste y encontraría el rechazo de la mayoría de los artistas de su época quienes se posicionaron en contra los avances tecnológicos que empezaban a dominar el mundo.

La técnica es un claro antecedente de lo que hacemos hoy día con la fotogrametría. Consistía en tomar 24 fotografías simultáneas de la persona a retratar, en un sala dispuesta para ello. Con estas fotografías y la ayuda de un pantógrafo se dibujaban las siluetas del modelo a la escala deseada. Estas siluetas eran como gajos con los que se construía un modelo que finalmente un artista trabajaría para dar el detalle suficiente a la escultura.

Lo más interesante es que el material del que partían, fotografías desde distintos puntos de vista es lo mismo que utilizamos en la fotogrametría por lo que el material fotográfico que Willème y sus socios crearon podría servir para crear modelos fotorrealistas de la alta sociedad del siglo XIX, creando un vínculo que salta 150 años en el tiempo y tecnología, uniendo la era del vapor con la digital.  

En Moøkan nos hemos decidido a intentar lograr este vínculo y homenajear la obra del escultor francés buscando archivos originales de sus estudio para poder procesar sus fotografías y reconstruirlas en 3D. Esperamos poder actualizar pronto este proyecto con nueva información y si es posible algún modelo virtual.

照片雕塑和摄影测量:150年的飞跃

Photogrammetry is a modern technique of digital capture of real models, which we have already talked about in this blog. Technique we work on rebuilding sculptures or buildings. This technique analyzes a group of photos of a model from different points of view and with them and many triangulation operations we obtain an automatic model in 3D.

The resulting model thanks to 3D printing is not limited to the digital world but can materialize as a sculpture in an automatic process. This is now possible thanks to the current technology, but it was similarly imagined by Fraçoise Willème in 1860. He called it photo-sculpture, a technique that still needed a lot of human handcraft but really dreamed of industrializing sculpture process.

The photo-sculpture came to have a certain fame at the time and portrayed the French imperial court, or the Spanish court of Isabel II by his partner in Spain Jean Laurent. Unfortunately this technique had a high cost and would find the rejection of the majority of the artists of its time who stood against the technological advances that began to dominate their world.

This technique is a clear antecedent of what we do today with photogrammetry. It consisted of taking 24 simultaneous photographs of the person to be portrayed in a room prepared for it. With these photographs and the aid of a pantograph the silhouettes of the model were drawn to the desired scale. These silhouettes were like segments with which a model was built that finally an artist would work to give sufficient detail to the sculpture.

The most interesting thing is that the material with which they worked, photographs from different points of view is the same as we used in photogrammetry, so the photographic material that Willème and his partners created could serve to create photorealistic models of the high society of the nineteenth century, Creating a link that leaps 150 years in time and technology, linking the era of steam with digital.

In Moøkan we have decided to try to achieve this leap and to honor the work of the French sculptor by searching original files of his studio to be able to process his photographs and reconstruct them in 3D. We hope to be able to update this project soon with new information and if possible some virtual model.
