Stylized Viking

Hey there, I am pleased to show you this stylized viking model, made during my free time and based on the beautiful design by Gaetano Leonardi
, good friend, sometimes a colleague and basically an astonishing art director and concept artist.

As for the renders, I was really inspired by the great lights set Brice Laville did to showcase his fantastic models.

First time I saw his neutral renders with hot/cold lights, I thought that type of light set and backround was perfect to enhance model presentation and to keep the attention focused on the details, plains and surface.
I basically tried to reproduce with Arnold what he did with Renderman.

As follows some backstage videos:

I really hope you like it
