This is a new series I just finished. I created these for an art show called project sketchbook. It's basically an open gallery showing where they send you a small sketchbook and you fill it with art, send it back, and they display them all in a showing one weekend.

Anyway, I made this little character and put him in some really simple environments. I wanted to focus on color and composition. They were fun to make. Any comments welcome.

These are great little pieces. I could see these as illustrations in a childrens book. Or even as a set of framed pieces hung in a childs room or childrens library.

Oh, Amazing!
I love this... lovely colors, textures, compositing, everything.
Very cute character.

@otacon - How much you used post processing with these and what kind?
I would like to see RAW render and post processed one.

Great serie, perfect for project sketchbook. Top composition, the ones with the typo,the mirror and the red alley are my favorite .

Mostly these kind of modeling and rendering is not my preferred style...but these are great images :) I liked them very much. The robot could have his own series .

Here's a closeup comparison shot of the straight render and the final. I use the dodge/burn tool a lot to add highlights and imperfections. Adjusting curves tweaks the colors a bit to make them pop. I also add a texture layer on top to give it some noise. It's just a concrete image, and the layer blending mode is set to soft light.

I really like these a lot. Beautiful colours. You could sell these as a poster series.

Good luck with the exhibition.

Mind to share your camera settings (filter, pattern, AA, AS, OS)?

Here's a few photos from the showing. There was probably150 books total. It was pretty cool.
