A 3D Rendered Image from my fourth RTJ4D Entry, representing Run the Jewels' 4th Album
Project Breakdown:
In August 2020, I was a participant in the worldwide 3D Art Competition, called "A Visual Remix Challenge", hosted by both Run the Jewels & SketchFab.
As a participant, I was tasked with "remixing" the Run the Jewels symbolic 3D Logo in my own unique ways.
On this page you'll find Interactive 3D Scenes, Rendered Images, and brief, individual breakdowns of my 4 entries to the contest.
Everything in this project was modeled and textured from scratch by me.
Software Used:
Blender & Adobe Illustrator

RTJ4D - Entry #4

I created a Blender & SketchFab Tutorial about how I achieved this Toon Outline/Shaded Look, which you can view here.

The environment layout was planned and executed as a freeze-frame of a world where Run the Jewels' fourth album comes to life.

I used an Illustrated style, paying homage to Run the Jewels' establishment origin as its members were introduced to each other by way of a "Cartoon Network"/"Adult Swim" executive, Jason DeMarco.

RTJ4D - Entry #3

This retro-style scene is a combination of some of my favorite things, and acts as a fun and playful take on the old-school, yet fresh, conscious, and relatable form of music that Run the Jewels brings to the genre of Hip-Hop & Rap.

RTJ4D - Entry #2

A representation of the energy in every song from Run the Jewels' Fourth Album.

Run the Jewels represents Raw Power & Clarity by ways of clever Lyricism in Rap.
