Portrait of Kim Jung Gi
I am honored to present this portrait of the amazing
artist Kim Jung Gi. I asked Kim Jung Gi while we’re at THU if I could take create his portrait, and he enthusiastica lly agreed. It saddened me to hear the new of his passing only a few short days later. I hope that Kim would have been proud of this finished portrait. Kim decided his pose of pointing towards us, perhaps it was one of his final messages, I like to believe that it was a message for us to look within and believe in ourselves, that it is our turn to step into our potential.Thank you Kim Jung Gi, you are a legend and inspiration to us all.
Kim Jung Gi was modelled and textured in Maya and Mudbox, no scans were used, it was rendered with V-Ray, and the hair is created with X-Gen. The workflow was using GPU RTX rendering, I used 2 RTX 6000 graphic cards from Nvidia to help render on a Lenovo workstation.
