Staff pick contest November 2019

November's Staff Picks contest was a close-fought contest, with Ching-Kai Yen's Joaquin Phoenix as Joker 3D model beating off the contenders! Created in ZBrush, Ching-Kai used many references to get the likeness just right - and we think he did a great job! Check out the winning image below, as well as the runner's up!

Perfect work with beautiful lighting, and with an excellent combination of colors and materials. The highly detailed forms look scanned, but the work feels more than just realistic, it is super atmospheric, and has a surrealistic feeling.
