Here is my latest character. For whatever reason, whenever I uploaded this first image the colors came out all wrong. It seems as if there was a gradient added on top of the image. It is supposed to look like this: http://tanya.cgsociety.org/portfolio/project-detail/1141233
Hopefully they will fix this problem.
So getting back to this character. It was all created with Maya and ZBrush. I even tested out the noise maker to try and get a cloth feel on his coat, vest, shirt and gloves. Let me know what you guys think!
