Imperial Crown

The Imperial Crown of the Holy Roman

Empire is a private 3D project

I finished in early 2010.

 

I tried to rebuild the original as

detailed as possible.

 

This is an extremely high-poly model I

reduced to approximately three

million polygons via mesh-optimization

to use it for animations and renderings.

Final rendering with V-Ray

All of the modeling was done in Zbrush

Every detail from the arrangement of tiny

pearls, over the inscriptions of the so-called

“Bildplatten” (picture-plates), to the

cross was precisely realized.

 

The characteristics of each material like

gold, iron, gems or velvet were exactly

adjusted to achieve a photo-realistic

impression.
