German designer Till Nowak has created a masterpiece “Salad”, a fantastic digital image of Alien made out of vegetables. His tribute to HR Giger and Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
Till Nowak modeled twelve digital vegetables in 3ds Max using classical polygon modeling techniques. Photographs of fresh vegetables were used for the texturing process. Most of the vegetables started with a cylinder primitive and needed around 30 minutes of work. The modeling was easy â€“ it was much more difficult to find the right places and orientations to build a monster with it.
Till Nowak presented “Salad” at SIGGRAPH 2007 in San Diego. artfuture was there and did an interview with Nowak about the piece.
