A couple of white bears at north pole, after a snowstorm.

Heiya Everyone!
As you can clearly see, this is my latest work, featuring a couple of white bears at north pole, after a snowstorm.
(The one on the right is backfacing the camera, of course)
Modeling took me about 4 weeks, because I’ve never modeled a bear before, but I’m happy with the overall look.
Render in Cycles at 8000 samples, with a little bit of post processing with Photoshop, Gimp, Paint, a teaspoon, Nuke and Natron.

One of the best rendes I’ve ever seen

Very impressive. I would consider making the bear on the right harder to see because snowstorms limit visibility but I can still see the bear.

You could add a vignette so you bring the attention on the eyes of the bear. For now, the image is “bearely” readable… :spin::smiley:

Five stars. Texturing is impressive!

I think your levels are slighty off, which is a pity bringing down the great modeling a bit. Can you also post a wireframe- render please? :wink:

Could you share your lighting setup? Really love the polar bear material too. How long did it take to render?

Majestic work, the bear expression is so natural and captivating!

Saluti da Udine e complimenti per gli altri lavori che hai su ArtStation. Chiaro, questo qua li batte tutti :)!!!

This is far better than any other image you have on ArtStation :slight_smile:

great for 4-1-2017 :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :spin:

Really impressive work! So much emotion in this render. You did a great job with the hair particles!

Great Work! I really like the high level of anatomical correctness! And by the way, the snow material is brilliant! Could you post a node setup please?

Hey mate, i can’t see the image. Just two black-dot on the white blank.

Haha that will be the bear on the left side :stuck_out_tongue:

Heiya people!
Thanks to everyone which got this and made a creative-comment for this 1-4-17 render :°)
Those made my day :°)
I’ll not post wireframes or materials nodes because, you know, they will be so huge and complex that server could explode if I try!

See you around with more-serious stuff maybe :stuck_out_tongue:
Happy Blending!


That was a good one, David. Made my 1/4 :slight_smile:

One of the best pieces of art I have seen in a LONG time. It might need a bit more depth of field though.
