Artist: Ramon Luis Colon

A vast majority of Ramon Colon’s artwork is polygon and sub-polygon division modeling. He employs DAZ Studio from DAZ Productions for large visual compositions, as well as Pixologic’s Zbrush and DAZ Hexagon for modeling. “My artwork is varied from the fantastic world of superheroes to the historical reproduction of ancient Egyptian Pharaohs,” Colon describes. “There is spiritual symbolism in my artwork, too.” Colon was trained in traditional academia as an artist, he decided to step into the digital realm to crate and visualize his ideas. Living in Puerto Rico, Colon considers himself to be a “low-budget software user.” “I don’t use expensive software, such as Autodesk’s Maya or 3ds Max,” he says. “The most costly software that I have been using is Pixologic’s ZBrush, then i usually work with Hexagon, Carrara, DAZ Studio (all from DAZ Productions) and, of course, everybody’s favorite Adobe Photoshop. From time to time, I use Corel’s Paintshop Pro and other vector drawing software.”
