Digital: Precariat Punk
by Beauchamp Art
A haggard youth intended as a character study for my ongoing dystopian narrative project, with no reference used but drawing some elements from self-observations.
In the final staged of the sculpture, I reworked the hair style, added chest hair, and made a few modifications to the rendering process to produced well balanced illuminations for the model with a combination of warm and cold lights to create a more organic aesthetic. Possible under the influence of the recent Bowie overdose, there is an influence of Ziggy Stardust in his styling combined with a hint of John Lydon, whom I have sculpted previously; though the orange/ginger hair is intended to involve the city fox, its ruddy fur and bushy tail prowling and scavenging the urban environment, roaming as the spirit animal of the contemporary youth.
