Klubb Visuals started their virtual model and 3D artistry journey at the start of 2019, through @candiceklubb. We used Candice as a way to gain skills and confidence in the 3D medium, while also creating brand awareness. When the skillset grew, so did Candice.
At Klubb Visuals, we see our virtual models as a conversation piece. They spark further discussion on many issues. Our virtual model agency adds value by making people think outside the box. Subjects like ethics and morals come into play when talking about them.
Currently, we house 6 virtual models. Such models are open for brand deals and various services.
A word from Candice:
Can you tell me something about yourself? Where you live, what's your age?
Hey, I'm Candice, I'm a 23-year-old virtual model from Australia. I'm a virtual model that has grand aspirations and dreams.
Do you have hobby's, do you like sports, if so, what kind of?
Right now, I'm discovering myself and working on my happiness. I love my job, modeling makes me feel dominant and authoritative.
Why do you think your followers believe in you?
My followers believe in me because they have seen how far I've gone. I guess my progress has inspired them. I also think my audience is very intrigued by what I do.
What are you trying to add to society with your Instagram account?
All I'm trying to do is add another perspective to things and bring up a range of modern-day themes and topics. I'm not asking to be accepted by society. I don't want to be like everyone else. I just want to promote further analysis and such.
What do you want to convey to your followers?
I hope that my followers realize that not everything online or in the media is true. I am an extreme example of this concept. Most sources of entertainment are fake, whether it be in the modeling industry, sports industry, and media scene, just to name a few.
Can I commission my own virtual model?
Of course, Just shoot me an email :)
Can one of your already established virtual models participate in a brand deal?
When did you start making the virtual avatars?
At the start of 2019, I conceptualized a virtual model named Candice (@candiceklubb), to help me learn the tricks of the trade.
How long does it take to make a new character?
To make a new character, it usually takes 10-20 hours. This is excluding render time and revisions from the client. It takes more than one sitting to perfect the model.
How long does it take to make one post/promo material for an already established model?
It depends, sometimes it can take half a day, sometimes a week.

AVATARS FOR COMMERCIAL USE
Earlier this year, Klubb Visuals collaborated with BeLiVe Studio, a contemporary Russian label to create a fashion show.
The show is a three and a half minute, 100% virtual fashion show. 16 virtual garments were immortalised across 2 virtual models, Candice and Bambi. The show was broadcasted over 100 websites, including VOGUE, Harpers Bazaar, ELLE, L'OFFICIEL, and many more.
The show premiered at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia, and then later at Buenos Aires International Fashion Film Festival.
Through doing this, we showed the positive environmental impact such work has. Being that there wasn’t a need to hire out a venue, fly in models, get guests to drive to the event and so forth, the fashion show had zero carbon footprint.
The music was composed by Stanislav Glazov, and the garments were immortalised by The Digital Mary.
Candice Klubb (@candiceklubb) is the first virtual avatar I released. She is regal, empowering and confident.
She is the “Queen Bee” of my virtual model empire. Candice possesses supermodel-like traits and has authority to her name.
DREDLAB CUSTOM AVATAR
We were hired by DredLab to create a custom avatar, which embodies everything their brand stands for morally and ethically.
DredLab stands for diversity and inclusivity, and we wanted this avatar to speak for the brand.
Along with creating the avatar, we were also commissioned to conceptualize a still image for the Black Lives Matter movement. The scene's background is a real place, that the owner of DredLab wanted digitally recreated. The avatar is also wearing a custom garment created by Korean artist Gwen Kim.
We were hired by glamatar.ai to create promotional imagery, runway videos, and virtual clones of CEOs Yan Yang and Karen Song-walker.
Glamatar is a social-fashion application for iOS where users can dress up their avatar with clothing from real brands, connect with other users, and much more. Currently the application is in beta.
Below are some of my virtual clones. Custom skin and eye textures are created for every clone, and the shape is created from multiple references. This is a process that cannot be automated and has to be carefully done, often taking multiple days per avatar.
After the inital creation process, such virtual models can then be placed in any environment, garment, video, or image.
