Normally I would be annoyed that I missed the deadline but getting sick and having to move house conspired against me in finishing this to completion and on time. I still wanted to finish her all the way up to texturing and hopefully can finish her in the next month or 2 (as well as give her some hair :P)
Hmm, Tumblr is shrinking the images, click here for higher rezzzzzzzzz
The more I see Zorin Vasili’s work, the more I like it.
Hari & Deepti (India/USA)
Hari & Deepti are an artist couple currently based out of Denver, Colorado. Hari (whose full name is Harikrishnan Panicker) is a trained graphic designer and illustrator, born and raised in Mumbai, India where he was a senior designer and an established illustrator. Deepti Nair is a certified geek, an Interaction Designer and also a trained artist.
Hari & Deepti moved to Denver from India and carried with them a Pandora box full of stories and imagination that they bring to life through their intricate paper cut light boxes and paper clay sculptures. They have always been drawn towards the imaginative aspect of story telling and seek inspiration from them. Stories have so many shades and depth in them, and paper as a medium has the exact qualities to reflect and interpret them. They believe that “Paper is brutal in its simplicity as a medium. It demands the attention of the artist while it provides the softness they need to mold it in to something beautiful. It is playful, light, colorless and colorful. It is minimal and intricate. It reflects light, creates depth and illusions in a way that it takes the artist through a journey with limitless possibilities.”
They started experimenting with paper cut shadow boxes in 2010 with hand painted watercolor paper which was then cut and assembled in a wooden box to create a diorama, with years of practice their art became more intricate and minimal at the same time. They started experimenting with lights and simplified their pieces by losing the colored aspect of the paper. They have since then evolved to add their own style of paper cut art incorporating back-lit light boxes using flexible LED strip lights. “What amazes us about the paper cut light boxes is the dichotomy of the piece in its lit and unlit state, the contrast is so stark that it has this mystical effect on the viewers.” (src.

Finished high poly for this monthly challenge on Polycount. 5 days of gastric flu and a week without a computer from moving house really threw out any decent schedule I had planned for her so I finished up the HP and have done most of the LP, just need to make hair, UV, bake and probably texture her at some later date.
Has been fun refining my workflow and getting (much) faster at putting together high end assets, good times!
