Rhinoceros 1515, Kazuhiko Nakamura (3D)

Title: Rhinoceros 1515
Name: Kazuhiko Nakamura
Country: Japan

I created this work based on the rhinoceros which "Albrecht Durer" drew in 1515.
"Durer, never actually saw a live rhino and based his drawing on a brief sketch and a letter.
The rhino that inspired Durer's drawing was given by an Indian sultan to King Manuel of Portugal in 1515.
the Portuguese king sent the rhino as a gift to the pope.
However, the ship carrying the rhino sank in a storm and the unfortunate rhino was drowned."
( Quotation from "A History of the World")

Modeled and rendered with "Shade".
Composition and tonal correction with "Photoshop".

Hope you will like it!

For reference Albrecht Durer's Rhinoceros.

Wow! Durer was always one of my favorites. Likewise, what a classic style and look this piece has taken from his work. There are tons of potential 2D works created by the Masters that are just waiting to be modelled like this one. Congratulations on a fine work of art.

Just excellent. I love the colour palette to this as well as the top notch modelling/texturing.

Great Job man.
