The Hermit

Personal project
Role: 3d Modeler / UV mapping / Texture artist / Concept artist / Lighting / Compositing

This character was the result of a few concepts I came up with sometime ago. I wanted to create a character that resembled an old bicentennial creature living in solitude, basically the last of his kind.
I really loved getting lost into details and adding little objects from the past as well as designing and sculpting a lot of different items.
I spent quite a bit of time researching and gathering reference for antique items, facial expressions, skin imperfections, clothing and environments.
At the bottom of the page you‘ll find additional renders and a little ‘making of’ video that details the development of this character.
