Claire Portrait Illustration

It has been quite a while since my last update to my portfolio. Mainly because I was working a lot on commissions which left me little time to finish my personal projects. However, during the last 2 weeks I had the chance to finish the “Claire” project.

The portrait was based on a ZBrush head sculpt I was doing for a client. I came up with the idea of reusing it for this project. I was thinking about a combination of a female portrait and butterfly’s for a while. Since this one was planned to be close to photo real it posed some challenges. To make it all come true I had to switch my main software application to blender. I have to say I like it more then I thought I would initially. It helped getting the render the way it looks now.

I’m very pleased with the result and I plan on doing another portrait this year. Maybe something with long curly CG hair. We will see though. Please enjoy the images.
