Hello, and welcome to 3dArtSpace.com. I’m Meats Meier and this is my portfolio of some of the projects that I have created. I work in both the 2nd and 3rd dimension using software such as Maya and Zbrush for modeling and animation, and use programs like Photoshop and After Effects to composite the images into Animations and high resolution Fine Artwork. I also enjoy compositing 3d elements into live action DV and HD footage and then matching the colors and movement for seamless integration.
I take a lot of pictures, some of which you can see in the Photo section.
My biography, demo Reel, video interviews, and book appearances can be found in the
Four of my 3D drawerings were printed in the new book – "Gothic Art -
The Very Best in Contemporary Gothic Art and Illustration". It’s a
really good looking book – beautiful, dark images throughout.
The book features artwork by Chet Zar, Laurie Lipton, Brom, Eric Scala and many more…
Gothic Art Now
"For the first time ever, Gothic Art Now brings the very best in dark artwork into the light in one visually stunning volume. Showcasing artists from across the globe, Gothic Art Now
reveals their exciting and dynamic new images in this unique
collection. Artists expose the tricks of their trade, providing
inspiration and insight into how they created their artwork – including
work from hot new talents to legendary names such as H. R. Giger. From
conventional media such as paint and pencil to stained-glass and
digital creations, this book covers a wide range of artforms,
demonstrating that this dark genre contains far more colour, diversity
and skill than most would ever have imagined."
I’ve put all of my "Introduction to Zbrush 3" training online for FREE (the best part) as a gift to the Zbrush community. I used Vimeo to host them, meaning they are in full resolution HD, available 24/7. I recommend Vimeo to anyone wanting to host tutorials or demo reels, the quality is amazing. I believe it has a lot of good information inside that will help anyone that is looking to learn or improve their skills in Zbrush. Hopefully somebody can find some use out of them before they may become irrelevant due to the new versions.
I’m personally really excited about Zbrush 3.5..
Lucky Strike Lanes has my artwork playing on their screens in all 21 locations. A spanking new Lucky Strike has just opened in Downtown Los Angeles at the L.A. Live entertainment campus. My art has been looping there since 2003.

I used Pixologic Zbrush to sculpt the characters, Autodesk Maya to rig,
animate, light and render the scenes, 2D3 Boujou for video motion
tracking, and Adobe After Effects for final compositing.

I got the cover and feature story for the Computer Graphics World magazinesAugust issue.
(Volume: 31 Issue: 8)
"This year’s SIGGRAPH conference is acknowledging the dynamic shift
toward 3D in the entertainment industry, not only by the two days of
programming on the subject, but also by commissioning veteran animation
artist Meats Meier to create a digital hologram to serve as the
centerpiece for the conference and the exhibition’s newly revamped
Computer Animation Festival. "
You can read the feature story here at the CGW website.
