Arch Guardian Life Drawing by heozART Arch Guardian Life Drawing by heozART
This is the life drawing room at Think Tank Training Centre. I tried to integrate my 3d model (the robot not the person :D) into the photograph using an HDR I made in the same room to light the character.

Arch Guardian concept art by Keith Thompson: [link]

Please visit my web site [link] to watch my demo reel video with Arch Guardian and other projects.

Edit: I was informed that the portrait in the background is by Warren Louw. [link] It is physically hanging on the wall in this room, and I did not comp or photoshop it in.

Hi, yes, this was my first attempt at trying to integrate cg into a photograph, and got me interested in compositing. :)

Thanks, and good luck with your study at Think Tank! Btw, if you'd like to do this sort of stuff, the best advice I can give is to learn photography, composition, colors, perspective, and just about as much as you can about the visual language now and not to wait till school starts. There are no dedicated courses for such subjects, and you will have enough classes to keep you busy while in school.

If I manage to get in that is~ But I plan on taking another semester of some art classes to keep me busy until June :]
Would you mind if I asked you some questions regarding the school, etc?

Thank you. :) The link is already in the description, but here it is again. [link] The artist is Warren Louw, and you can order a print from his deviation page.

First thing I thought was "What's this doing in the 3D group?"
Basically, I'm convinced. Looks very nice!

Hahaha, it was not accepted at one of the groups I submitted. I hope they thought the same and didn't read the comment. :D

I love your Gia portrait, and it definitely adds a lot to the ambience of the room. I guess that's why I subconsciously included it in the frame when I was taking the picture. :)

Hehe you fooled me!
I didn't know it was a 3D model composed into a photograph until I read your comment, Wes.
So I guess you did alright

Would love to see what Del has to say about this though :D

I thought I recognized that guy! It's awesome to know he did the concept art for one of my favorite video games.
Also, this is a great piece :)

I've never played Borderlands, but from the screenshots I've seen, I feel Keith Thompson's concept looks much cooler.

Hey Edward. Yeah, I actually graduated at the end of May, but now I just have to keep working on stuff and update my reel till I get a job in the industry. Thanks for checking out my reel. :) I had to google Warren Louw's Gia, lol. They have artworks hanging everywhere in school.
