Besides my work as a designer at Univate, I make music under the name Polynation. For the upcoming singles and album covers, we came up with the idea of making stone animals inspired by aftermath of pompei (a live moment frozen in time). In order to achieve this look, I took basic 3d models and with some help of my colleague (and cinema4d guru) Razvan we managed to rig the model in order to get the right pose.
After setting the pose and fixing some skin problems, the next step was creating detail to get the stone look. With some digital sculpting high poly details where carved in.
A stone texture was added, added some bump making and subtle displacement to compliment the sculpting. Lighting and getting the right camera angle, and we’re ready to render!
