Beat Reichenbach

United States of America,  Los Angeles Gnomon School of Visual Effects,  Digital Production,  June 01, 2016
My name is Beat and I’m a 22 year-old student from Switzerland who recently sold his soul to Gnomon School. There I'm specializing on modeling and texturing but I enjoy all aspects of 3D.
There is nothing out there that makes me happier than seeing detailed characters or environments from other worlds. Those moments are the reason for me to be an artist. I want to carry on those feelings to others. The medium doesn’t matter, as long as I can create art that conveys the ideas of something so amazing, that you forget everything around you and just for a few seconds you are part of another world.

I worked on this character for over a year now on and off. It all started as a quick 1-hour sculpt. From there I created base meshes in blender that I then took into ZBrush and refined. I baked all the little belts and the different layers of clothing into several bigger meshes and took those to Maya where I rigged and shaded the model. I rendered it out in VRay.

I want to make sure that this is unofficial fan art based on concepts from various AC games.
