Kurt Cobain Recreated in 3D With ZBrush & Maya

Hadi Karimi has shared one more take on the legendary musician.

Hadi Karimi, a renowned Character Artist and 3D Sculptor whose incredible 3D portraits of historical figures and celebrities have been featured numerous times here on 80 Level, strikes again and unveils one more outstanding model.

This time, the creator presented a photorealistic recreation of Kurt Cobain, the legendary rock musician and Nirvana's lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter, depicting him with an angry-looking facial expression. To set up the portrait, Hadi utilized his usual toolset, using ZBrush for modeling and painting, Maya's Arnold for rendering, and XGen for hair.
