Posing for Leonardo da Vinci: Portrait and Allegory
Inspired by a famous ink caricature sketch on paper [Venice, Accademia] by Leonardo da Vinci [you can see the original sketch on the mirror]. I have created this 3D character with ZBrush. The scene has been prepared, as if the character were posing for Leonardo himself. The scene has then a series of allegories about the character: the mountain with the same shape of the head, the ravens, the mirror, the pearl on the table, the window after an original one by Leonardo. The spherical mirror is an homage to van Eyck. 3D character inspired by Leonardo's caricature sketch modeled with ZBrush. Table, mirror, pearl all modeled with Cinema4D. Scene, Alpha Plane for the window, light and Multipass rendering with Vue 6 Infinite. Final Composite with Photoshop. Porticodoro/SmartCgArt
