Hey Julian, congrats on the well deserved top row. And thanks for the lights and shaders! I just did a render for an article and wish I had seen this before hand...
Great stuff Julian, checked out your website (thanks for taking the time to visit mine & comment) Alot of your stuff reminds me of a mix of Francis Bacon & Raymond Pettibon. You're really doing some inspiring work. Is the progeria piece of Leon Botha?
Shhark - Thanks for stepping by ma. No it's not particularly Leon Botha. Oddly I learned about him only when I was already quite far with the model. Regardless from there on it was of course also inspired by him.
Either way I didn't want to make a portrait of someone specific. rather than an imaginery portrait of "anybody" with Progeria.
Also, essentially it isn't that much about the condition Progeria but about the condition 'life' itself, because that's what Progeria is in a way - a very condensed version of life. The beauty and the struggle of lving between birth, aging and death we all share is just a lot more imminent and less ignorable for someone with Progeria, because it is determined to happen a lot faster and more obvious than for the rest of us.
Man, that Mickey and fat man sculpt scenery is so wonderfully bizarre and disturbing, you gotta finish it
Never heard of Raymond Pettibon before. Gotta check his work out.
great work! really interesting stuff!
