Ian Spriggs is back with his newest hyperrealistic work, a Portrait of Erica with her dog Carmine. The project is actually the first portrait he has done with an animal and Ian states that this was quite a challenge.
The concept of the piece is said to be based on the Ambassadors painting by Hans Holbein the Younger with multiple meanings behind it.
“Lenovo and NVIDIA supported me with this portrait, I used their Quadro P6000 graphic cards and a Lenovo workstation which allowed me to use GPU rendering, it quickened the speed in which I was able to make iterations and make adjustments. I want to thank V-Ray Chaos Group for their ongoing support with my work too,” added the artist.
The work was modeled in Maya and Mudbox, textured in Mudbox and Photoshop, hair was done with X-Gen, skin details were set up with the help of XYZ textures, rendered with V-Ray, with some final touch-ups in Photoshop.
