I actually like this shot better than my previous closeup render for some reason...!
Great work!Love the dirt..the hair is top!
Was the texture painted yourself or from photographs?
It was hand painted
did you use a lot of reference images?
I do use a lot of reference image for all of the different stage of the character.
from the sculpting stage I look at anatomical reference, image from the character I'm making, clothing fold references etc,
For the texturing on that one I looked at so many pictures of Ellie from the game to try and bring it as close as I could from the actual in game model etc
Does Zbrush also have retopology functions??
Hope all these questions aren't bothering u too much.
Doesn't bother me one bit
Yep zbrush does have a retopology tool.
It's not bad, still I really enjoy topogun better
Sounds great, I'm still playing around in Maya and Blender (more so blender with its great sculpting tools ) I'll start some Zbrush training soon.
It's really great when you find an artist you admire reply to your messages thanks so much!
Would you be okay if I sent you updates in the future for critiquing? annoying apprentice style?
Brilliant work on the textures!!
