3D Character Artist Michal Patton has unveiled Cadet, an impressive non-photorealistic model of a futuristic-looking soldier, created by the artist to learn more about the stylized character LookDev.
Based on one of Adrian Bush's illustrations, the character features an outstanding custom-made post-process filter, which gives the character a painterly look and, according to its creator, works in any lighting condition, set up by Michal using Unreal Engine 5.
