my name’s Davide and this is Don Gaetano, an ol’seaman which is a friend o’mine!
Even if i’m really not into character modeling, I felt pretty inspired about this, and gave myself a try
Since i’m addicted to low polu stuff, I’ve tried to keep it simple and punchy, looking for some oilpainted illustration style. Just 5k verts, almost only toon/diffuse node materials, rendered in Cycles (2500px * 3500px) at 300 sample, it took about 5/7 min to complete the render.
After adding freestyle lines and some PS post processing, this is what i cam up with!
C&C are welcome!
