Next time you see some lichen on a tree branch, go up and have a really close look, it is the most amazing alien world you can image.
These shots were taken with my macro lens in the studio.
I then went into zbrush and created my own lichen.
Not quite as perfect as the real thing, I’ll be sure to revisit it soon.
Here is an extended piece integrated with the photography.
Here is an initial sketch for a small section of a future piece called Oxygen Tree. For this one I am looking at studying air plants, pitcher plants, also aquatic plants and seaweeds.
Posters, canvas prints, stickers, iphone cases, t-shirts and much more!
