10 of our Favorite KeyShot Renderings of 2022

by | Jan 5, 2023 | 0 comments

Could we *actually* pick just one favorite KeyShot rendering of 2022? Psh. No sooner could we select a single favorite star in the sky. Still, we made an effort to gather some of our favorites from this year. The following KeyShot renderings caught our attention for a variety of reasons, whether it was stunning realism, outlandish creativity, razor-sharp caustics, or just good-old-fashioned cleverness.  

Also: is this list remotely comprehensive? Of course not. Feel free to share with us the killer KeyShot renderings we missed in the comments. 

Got a hole in your lip? 

Gorgeous blue glasses that you’re lucky aren’t real, because they’d be all but impossible to drink from. Still, we’re in love with the caustics, textured glass, lighting, and did we mention, those gorgeous caustics?

Does it have an engine? Then Pablo Marcelo has probably dropped a fantastic KeyShot rendering of it. His Insta is full of classic cars, race cars, motorcycles, and even airplanes.

Alex D’souza’s renderings are a gosh darn delight. Probably because he loves providing a sense of “uniqueness, interaction and fun” to his creations.

Excellence. Rendered.

There’s good and then there’s GOOD. Rachel Anne Bernardo’s renderings are the latter. And her own story is both comforting and galvanizing – her philosophy of fearlessly embracing failure will inspire you to do your best work.

Sand on the lens! Sand on the lens!

One of our most-commented-on #clay2keyshot Insta posts of all time drew legit concerns that sand was ruining a classic film camera. And at the time, Jay hadn’t even graduated yet!

A perfect proposal.

Ivan Vuzem has not only designed jewelry for some of the world’s most prestigious brands, but he also took a 2D drawing from his girlfriend, modeled it, rendered it in KeyShot, made a 3D printing of its form, and arranged for the ring to be made for his proposal.
