I wanted to get better at texturing and UV mapping, so I decided to pursue this fun concept of renaissance era still life paintings with a little modern twist I had in my idea list for a while. While working on the series I tried to do a lot of research and stay as close to reality as possible – both visually and historically – it’s not 100%, but hopefully close enough! The series took around 300hrs from start to finish and was done between April and September 2020.
Is this how 16th century advertisments would look like?

“Durable, lightweight and gold plated. Enter the battlefield with style and protection like never before. Nike Iron Max is the definitive sabaton for 16th century combat.”
“It's ultralight and built with real leather. Whether you wear it as a midlayer under armour or by itself, it'll add that extra layer of protection with unrestricted movement. Combine this with intricately embroided design and you get the brand new UA Gambeson. Improve your survivability and impress all fair maidens!”
“This men's burgonet and shield set has high-key decorated style with an embossed logo and three distinctive stripes. Made of hardened steel and 24 carat gold, it has truly heavy duty design. It also features adjustable chin strap so you can personalize the fit. To lighten the set we added feathers sourced from the finest birds in the realm. Practical burgonet design shades your face so you can stare death in the eyes on the battlefield like never before.”
