3D Still Life


TA-DAH! After 3-4 weeks of hard work, and one particularly hectic last week of intense dedication, I am proud to present my final project for our Photorealism class, made with my classmate Candice Mayer.

For our final project we had to pick a traditional still life painting from an artist of our choice, and reproduce it as photo-realistically as possible in 3D, using Softimage XSI. So we decided to use a lovely whimsical painting by artist Michelle Waldele as our inspiration. Below you can see our reproduction, followed by her original painting.

All the modeling, setup, lighting, shading and texturing was done in XSI. The final render was then brought in Photoshop for final color correction, grain addition, some edge blur and very minute additions to some of the textures.

Overall I have estimated our work on this project to be somewhere between 50-60hrs each, from initial concept research to final tweaks in Photoshop. It was a lot of work, but I had an awesome time working on this.
