Mother’s Fathers Day! | Digital Portrait

Made a portrait for Mother’s day. This is a companion piece for the one I did last year for Father’s day. Both are made into physical copies. © 2021 Arno Schmitz.

December Knight – Part V – High Poly Renders

A closer look at the high poly stage, the armour design and all the FACs expressions. All renders are done in Keyshot.

December Knight – Part IV – Contraposto

The fourth image of my December Knight Series.
This image is a classic contraposto pose intended to be made into a 3Dprinted statue.
Thanks to Patricia Rodríguez Torroba for printing my ZTL on her Anycubic Photon S printer.
And thanks to Andrius Drevinskas for taking the amazing pictures.

December Knight – Part III – Traveler

The third image of my December Knight Series.
In the form of a video tutorial I’m sharing my relighting workflow.
It explains how you can composite in photoshop to quickly itterate and create different variants, drasticly changing the mood of your image.

December Knight – Part II – Contemplation

The second image of my December Knight Series.
During my work I listen to a lot of soundtracks. This image is inspired by the cover of the OST for Netflix’s the King. An alternate version shows him with the hood up.

December Knight – Part I – Gargoyle

The first image of my December Knight Series.
The model is based on concept made during my high school years.
I wanted to give it a fresh 2020 look, and took it all the way from concept to fully rigged character.
In this first image I tried to recreate the original piece as faithfully as possible to measure how far I’ve come as an artist.

My December Knight has the honour of gracing the cover of 3Dworld Issue 270. This issue contains both a written and video tutorial.

Portrait of Mariana – WIP | Digital Portrait

Started working on my next portrait. Still early days, but with the current state of the groom you can already get an impression of where it’s going.

Portrait of my Father -WIP | Digital Portrait

 got a lot of positive feedback on my fathers day portrait.
So I decided to expand on the project and try something new; sharing WIPs here instead of just final pieces.
In this one I tried a more serious expression and added all the x-gen components.
