Olivier Pautot is a 3D designer based in Besançon, France with an incredible portfolio of 3D work, especially, in my opinion, the fun and whimsical character design ones.
One of my new years resolution is to practice and learn more 3D. I've been playing with Cinema 4D for quite some time now but never went into much depth. I know it's going to take some time until I reach the level of the images I'm about show you here, but I'm going to do my best to make the learning process as fun as possible.
So in this post I have selected some remarkable 3D rendered characters from the CGSociety, one of the best sites out there on the subject. There are images from guys from all parts of the globe. Click on the images to go to their pages at CGSociety.org for more details about the work.
I wanted to get motivated to start my endeavor in this uncharted territory, at least for my brain :)
