I'm super excited about Artstations new blog feature and decided I'm gonna start consolidating some WIP shots to show you guys how my projects are coming along. I thought for this first post I'd share a project I'm having a lot of fun with. I'm making Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy 7. For right now I'm focusing on getting him looking cool but once that's done I'm going to start engineering him for print and make a small little statue of him.
This was the most recent untextured render I posted on here recently. It was a Keyshot render with a 3-4 point light set up that I really enjoy. The textured version will have a different lighting set up.
Here's how my material for the sword looks
Other than the sword, I also spent a TON of time making Cloud's hair a bit more 3D Printer friendly. I used the Hair Clump and Hair Detail brush created by Marthin Agusta from XM Studios using a method they showed in their Zbrush Summit 2017 presentation. The brush can be found here
As always, he's still a huge WIP all around but making good steps towards completion! Moving forward I'm gonna continue to work on texturing the rest of his body and making other changes as I continue to polish him up.
Thanks for checking out my blog! Looking forward to posting more on this in the future :)
