i have reserved this journal only for my photography for quite sometime already. but i am making an exception now. Gatchaman II is the anime which starts it all for me. Ironically, i have never done any artwork on the series throughout my career. in times of uncertainty like now, i decided to create a Gatchaman piece, and should my career as an CG artist end, this will be the most appropriate work to commemorate it. i am not a character artist by training, so i decided to break it up in phrases. i am still detailing the full body model and so phrase 1 will be artworks of his facial close-up.
Base model is done in 3DS Max, Maya. Further sculpting, texturing and rendering in ZBrush. Composite is done in Photoshop.
I am so looking forward to paint that big red bird emblem on his chest!
*i think i can't help myself lighting and processing my 3D character portrait like myreal life photography.
