Going to try to be a little more diligent in showing the process.
(from the bottom up)
Render done in VRay (change of plan). Havent used this renderer much, but really enjoying it.
Still needs a fair bit done. Texture fixes, model tweaks... got a bit of time tomorrow to finish it.
Some pretty messy textures for now. Would like to do more, but will have to do for now.
Quick lighting setup with some basic shaders.
Trying out some shaders options and basic details. I think he's going to be in a desert environment, so Im going with orange and greys in the foreground (I think everyone has forgotten District 9 by now... right?) I might try the blue and white for an Arctic version... see how keen I am after Im done with this...
First test render
Rough sketch in Zbrush. Retopo'ed in ZB before detailing in Maya... Im old fashion like that;)
