Biotop from Polygonia
Randomly Generated Insect Species
This is my second set for Neonmob (first project : Radiolaria Index).
I had to choose for a subject who could lead to a lot of possible variations. I've always loved insects and I use them as subjects for macro photo for years now. So this theme came quite logically. I wanted the set to look like entomology plates used to expose insect's collections in museums.
So I imagined species who live in a polygonic planet. Some are inspired by terrestrial species, some not. Each species has four to eight specimens coming from differents sub-species.
I've started on Cinema 4D by creating a "species basis" who has all particularities of the species (extra legs, wings,...). I used some deformers (displacer, polygon reduction) in order to give the species his overall shape. Then I created each specimen by shifting some parameters on the deformers. Afterward, I rendered each specimen in Cinema 4D and postworked with Photoshop.
The set is really huge, the biggest set I ever made : 100 differents insects + 100 night versions of the same insects + some surprises if you collect the set on Neonmob :)
So this is just a small part of the full set, which is available on NeonMob exclusively. If you like it and want to collect the full set for free, please use this link for signing in, this will give me some extra-cards ! Thank you :)
EDIT : Added real-time 3d version for two insects (first tests on Sketchfab) !
