This is the first time Pepper isn't in her red suit.
Done in Painter, freehand and photoshop, with photo reference for the pose and enviornment. Headgear modelled in Rhino and rendered in 3d max.
Appearing to be a nice photograph at first sight, Pepper Rock by *Artgerm turns out to be a stunningly realistic looking digital painting, depicting his adorable character Pepper from his 'different styles - unified subject' illustration project, wearing a sexy and elegant ensemble of a retro sci-fi designed swimsuit and matching skintight over-knee boots and headgear that simply speaks for itself.
Painter, free hand, photoshop, rhino and 3ds max, and I know you can handle alot of other programs as well, also your flow work donīt seem to be negatively affected by using so many softwars and you can go with many different styles, gestures, anatomy, light stituations and what not,
is this the power of being in a studio or is that you just move everywhere and know all kind of ppl all the time? you are really an exposed mind/person and that is what I like the most on you. I still donīt know how you do it but I will try to understand.
Interesting, painters often attempt to simulate realistic appearance/life-like subject but I haven't seen too many hand-painting an image, even digitally, to give it the characteristics of a 3-D model. My only complaint is that the massive difference in contrast/definition between the 'model' and rock(s) to some degree takes away from the image, the sky however is blurred yet still seems to fit perfectly.
Thought this was a photo of a cosplayer (would've been the best cosplayer ever!!) at first, then realized it was a digital painting!! Just when I thought you couldn't surprise me more. You are an inspiration and a constant reminder to me to strive for my dreams and improve myself every day. Always looking forward to following your work. <3
