This is actually not just any sailor, but a stylized version of my dad. I made it as a birthday present for him. Since one of his greatest passions is sailing I wanted to show him in his typical sailing outfit with his black pullover, shorts and of course the black cap. Usually he doesn't walk around with an anchor though... I wanted to make this project for a long time and had now finally enough space to do it! Overall it took me about a week to finish.

Marmoset Toolbag 4 Workshop
On the 25th of march, 2021 I lead a workshop for the students at PIXL VISN media arts academy. I planned the workshop myself and it was on Marmoset Toolbag 4 and real-time rendering in general. I guided the participants through the whole process of baking, texturing, lighting and rendering inside Marmoset Toolbag 4 and exporting it for Marmoset Viewer afterwards.

For my 3rd project I wanted to make a real time project again like my first one. But this time I didn't render it in Unreal Engine but in Marmoset Toolbag. I also used Marvelous Designer for his apron, the hat, the pants and shoes. The texturing I did in Substance Painter again.

This project was one of the three characters I created for my Demo Reel. Since I have a fable for everything that has to do with Vikings and their culture and love its aesthetic, I decided to create a Viking myself. (Also encouraged by the release of Assassins Creed Valhalla…) It was also my first serious attempt on a realistic human and I learned incredibly much during the process. Modeled in zBrush, textured with Mari and Substance Painter, rendered and lit in Autodesk Maya with V-ray.

I made this Project after about 4 Months at PIXL VISN, so it's one of my earlier Projects. I had one Week to animate a character and create an environment for him. It was totally up to me what I wanted to create, there was no theme or any other specification. When I look at it today I would make a lot of things different by now... but I thought I will rather leave it like it is, so that I can see the huge improvements I made over the last months. Modeled in Maya, textured in Substance Painter and rendered with V-ray.

My old headset
After 6 Months at PIXL VISN I modeled my own old Headset and textured it... All done in 10 days. Modeled in Maya, textured in Substance Painter and rendered with V-Ray. I didn't had any dynamics lessons back then, but nevertheless i tried to include a bit of dynamics in this project...
