#3DxMemes – Full Color 3D Printed Viral Figurines from Ryan Kittelson #3DThursday #3DPrinting #3DScanning #3D
I have shared about CG generalist and instructor Ryan Kittleson before, one of my favorite go-to references for character design training resources for 3D printing. Well, he is the force behind a a heaping helping of both viral 3D printed object memes and the 3D printing of web memes, so I’ve collected a wee gallery of the items in this post here.
From his bio:
Ryan Kittleson has loved combining art with technology since he was a young child with a VIC-20 and enjoying visually rich images by artists like Dali and Escher. He taught himself Photoshop as a teen and then 3ds Max in his early 20s. He worked as a game artist in Raleigh, North Carolina for a while before returning to school and completing a bachelor’s of fine arts degree in illustration from East Carolina University, all the while practicing the art of digital graphics with personal and freelance projects. He then moved to Orlando, Florida where he taught character modeling at Full Sail University for 6 years. Ryan currently lives in New York City where he works as a freelance CG artist.
The Success Kit “Show off your success (or someone else’s) with this perfectly re-created sculpture based off the popular meme. Officially licenced from Laney Griner, success kid’s very own mother! 50% of the profits go to her.” (MEME: Success Kid / I Hate Sandcastles)
Son I Am Disappoint. “Show your disapproval with this incredibly realistic sculpted version of the classic meme. Sculpted by yours truly, Ryan Kittleson in Zbrush and Sculptris.” (MEME: Son, I am disappoint)
doge “such 3D printed. so realism. wow” (MEME: “doge“)
