Environment Modelling

I picked this concept art for X Men 2 by Mark Goerner to do a model to render study of an interior environment scene. His concept art pieces are so incredibly detailed and well thought out!
Though I need to do a lot more of these before I really get the hang of it, I totally enjoyed working on it. I've finished modelling and UVing the scene and blocked out the textures, shaders and lighting. More fixes, polishing and render tests before I can call it done.

Mastercopy: L'italienne au tambourin

Another value study of  a painting by William Bouguereau. I blocked it out in sketchbook pro on my iPad and decided to continue the study in PS & ended up starting over from scratch for the most part. I normally don't enjoy revisiting older paintings but I had Indian election & political scandals to keep me entertained through the study this time around :)
