Happy Birthday Nana, Dan Roarty (3D)



Title: Happy Birthday Nana
Name: Dan Roarty
Country: USA
Software: Maya, Mudbox, VRay

Hi guys, This image is inspired by my nana who passed away a few ago.. but not a likeness. Modeling in Maya.. Mudbox for sculpting/texturing and Vray for rendering head, hair and balloons. Hair/fuzz was created using Shave and Haircut and spec/gloss maps were created using a new tool called Knald. The far blurred BG is 2d image.

Thanks for taking the time to check it out!

What can we say except "WOW", everytime I watch that image I find new details.
The staging make this render looks like a real picture.
Keep us motivated with such good work, Dan!

Great work as usual, did you paint the skin texture from scratch or did you use some photos elements ? how many hours approximately you use to complete this work ?

Thanks

mind blown

N1kola- "everytime I watch that image I find new details.">>> I hear you on this one, which makes me feel like it it's in line with taking a moment to appreciate our elderly and we'll discover more. blows my mind whenever I think of that concept.

Holistic choice on colour palette; sounds crazy but it feels pretty apt for the subject.
CG brought to another level, do people still use the word CG these days? The subtle facial hair, button, balloon ribbons... a very nice touch.

My grandma took care of me for a while in my life so this work feels really endearing and reaches out to me. In short, a well crafted and thoroughly thought out piece of fine art.

definitely a head turner, might I say show stopper? lol. did somebody say top row?

Thanks for the wonderful comments guys!!!

For this image I didn't use any photos.. I prefer to texture heads by hand.. I do have some images below of some of the WIP of the image.
