16 Realistic Character Design Illustrations


Take some 3D software and mix in some creative suite products and you have an unstoppable combination. While the end result produces a 2D image the fact that the base is built with programs like Zbrush allows you to create a new scene by simply changing the angle and maybe a slight re-posing. If this were done totally in Photoshop (which one or two of these are) then it’s starting from the ground up if you need to make a pose adjustment and I can’t imagine starting over from scratch with something so detailed.
