Female Cleric, Arno Schmitz (3D)

Title: Female Cleric
Name: Arno Schmitz
Country: Netherlands
Software: Maya, mental ray, Mudbox, Photoshop

This is the first completed project after graduation. I started working on this right after finishing my previous character the asian mage. But went a year abroad to study fine arts. Now I finally had time to revisit and finish this piece, applying many lessons learned from the classical arts.

The overall workflow was very standard. I made a basemesh in maya, detailed it in a sculpting package ( in this case Mudbox ) and baked the result to a lower poly model. Texturing was done in Photoshop, Mudbox was used for projection painting. Rendering was completely done in Mental ray. Post effects such as the rays and atmosphere where applied in Photoshop.

The idea was to create fantasy character that could exist in the same world as my previous character, only representing a different culture, religion and personality.

Thanks to you all,

Shadowtrixz, because you asked I have uploaded some more images. Below the wireframe. As you can see she is not that high-poly as you might expect. No extra subdivisions, smoothing or displacement was used all the extra detail comes purely from the normal map.

Also a close-up of the cross. There is so many detail in it that the wide shot doesn't really do it justed. All the little decorative things on the side are modeled in.

reverseengineering, Mental ray is the renderer I used for this image. It comes with Maya. Eventhough there are some amazing renders made in with other products, such as Vray, Arnold or Renderman, Mental ray has always got the job done for me personally.
