Cel shading Study

Cel shading Study

my attempt of trying to replicate similarities of the guilty gear XrD art style based off of their GDC presentation. Most of the work involved researching and testing ways to properly edit vertex normals to control the look of cell shaded models, the character was also made by myself. Before and after images, along with a gif are on my behance. modeled and rendered in Blender.

Modi & vali stack model

3D render of the Schiit Modi and Vali amplifier and DAC, did this as a small one day project in between a bigger project and liked the results. Some times when I'm bored I just like to model small props for fun. Modeled in Blender, textured in Substance Painter and rendered in Marmoset Toolbag 3.
