Digital Animals and People Look Like Paper Sculptures by Maxim Shkret

Russian illustrator Maxim Shkret creates 3d sculptures of animals and people. His artwork is a wonderful mix of unique 3d modeling with carefully applied shadows and light that make it look like something sculpted out of paper. He uses tools like Autodesk 3ds Max, Vray, Corona Renderer, Pixologic Zbrush, and Wacom Intuos to create flowing furs, ridged scales, and intertwined hair.

The inspiration for his work comes from social roles, hunger, stubbornness in pursuing life goals, errors in anthropological and cultural definitions, and real life experience. “My series serves [as] a time machine for me. It can take me to the retrospective of my thoughts, findings, and delusions,” Shkret shares here. You can join him on Instagram to see more of his work.
