Red Leaves

For this project, I had the pleasure of recreating concept artist Juhani Jokinen’s artwork titled Red Leaves in 3D. I really loved the mood and storytelling in this shot so I decided to challenge myself by creating a 3D scene from concept art.

Below is a short video of how I recreated the piece.

    Stunning render, saw this last week or the week before, cant tell with this lockdown, time seems like a blur :(

    Amazed how he somehow has placed most if not all leaves at the same location?!

    Also the original artwork is amazing, the colors make it feel look dreamy yet the subject is not so dreamy
