Gellert Portrait by deslea Gellert Portrait by deslea
Gellert Grindelwald at home in New York.

This one was part of my ongoing attempt to find a Johnny-Depp-Gellert that I can live with and mentally situate in the same universe as Young Gellert. I'm not 100% happy with him here, but he's getting closer. It was my first experiment in custom IRay shaders (not for everything, just the chrome) and my first experiment in learning how to use IRay properly (I'm not all the way there). The New York 1920s skyline is a still from the movie, with the ship's deck and side doubling as a balcony here.

Thank you! I might still tweak him a bit more, but I think he's pretty close now!

I must say that I like this version of him. Especially the hair is great. It's also awesome how you did the background. I'm almost always too lazy for backgrounds. :)

Thank you so much!

Honestly, I often can't be bothered with backgrounds and I try to pan in the camera pretty tight to avoid them sometimes. They're so resource-intensive, and they often don't add very much. But this one needed something to break up the black and white.

You're welcome! :) 

I tend to leave the background out completely and later add one with Photoshop. Rendering backgrounds always feels like a huge waste of time... 
But sometimes, like in this image, a background really adds to the scene.
