Young Rebel

This is a work in progress. I’m planning to finish this image somewhat different. No Star Wars for one. But the Star Wars bug got me. So I added the stormtrooper (thx JJ Palomo) and the rebel logo and called it finished.

The original plan is inspired by ArtStation. I really love the 2d concept art images on this site. I wanted to make concept art too but with 3d , because I can’t draw or paint well. So my initial drive was to make a fast build, sculpted and textured image. I failed. Most meshes are build extremely fast, but then I got caught up in details.

I’m learning Blender and by taking on a whole project is often times the best way; lather, rinse, repeat. I had to go back to 3ds Max a few times, but found it difficult to find my way around. Some other external programs were used. Blender is getting there but there are a few specialized programs, better suited for some stuff, out there. There are so many tutorials on how to do Blender that I can’t even start to thank all the makers, but thank you all.

Blender Boat

I’m learning how to use Blender. I’m now focused on line art. In this image I wanted it to be subtle.
Inspired by Rembrandt, Benson, Monet and Sorolla.

Spycam

I stay in hotelrooms a lot. Every hotelroom has this airconditioning vent, usually just above the hallway in the room. With the technological advances of recent years, I do wonder sometimes, if there is a hidden camera looking through the gaps. If so, I’ve never noticed it.

I feel bad for the pervered filming me.. a sack of pale white skin and bones 🙂

Monet


Inspired by Monet I wanted to make a sketch in 3d. I knew from the start I was going to use a filter in post so I didn’t care for to much detail.

Build in 3ds Max and Vue. Used a filter for post.

Vallée de Lavande


After I saw a image of Paul Hamilton I was inspired to make a lavender field myself. I like to make images in one day but this time it took a bit longer.. 3 days. The rendering alone lasted for a hole day.

Oscar Niemeyer Swimming Pool


I saw a documentary about Oscar Niemeyer recently. He might be offended if he sees my design. But I made it to honour him. It started as a Vue light study.

Arabian Nights


Inspired by painters like Jean-Leon Gerome, I created this image with Vue. I hope you like it.

Panorama Bathroom


I like ambient occlusion render and I like panoramas. So why not mix them?

seventeenth century digital painting


I love the old landscape paintings from the 17th and 18th century. They make you wonder how it would be to live there at that place and time. No cars, no electricity, no cellphones. Still painters travelled all over europe to visit foreign countries.. very brave. I sit here behind my computer.

Kitchen Design


We are designing our new kitchen. Any suggestions?
