Here are a couple images of my digital sculpture of Prometheus. The piece is my own interpretation of the Prometheus myth, and is not based on any existing sculptures. I have given a few talks about “the making of”, including one on Digital Sculpture at the Tate Modern in London in September 2006. I sync’ed my slides to the Tate’s podcast of the lecture, you can check it out here (a few of the animations and demonstrations are missing but you should get the idea). It talks about both the artistic and technical progression of the sculpture from concept development to modeling, rendering, and compositing. If you are especially interested in the rendering process you can also check a detailed “Rendering of Prometheus” tutorial using RenderMan for Maya.

NOTE: This talk is a few years old now and the state-of-the-art in computer graphics has moved on since, but many of the ideas are still valid.
