Musician's Portrait, Akin Bilgic (3D)



Title: Musician's Portrait
Name: Akin Bilgic
Country: USA
Software: Maya, ZBrush, VRay, MARI
Submitted: 29th July 2013

I created this project during some downtime to experiment with photo-realism and to modernize my personal workflow. The subject is very loosely based on the cuban jazz musician Compay Segundo of Buena Vista Social Club fame.

Modeling was done with ZBrush and Maya, Texturing with Mari, and Lighting/Shading/Rendering with V-Ray in Maya.

I've also been toying with the idea of sharing some of my source files with the CG Community that has given so much over the years. So very I'm pleased to be releasing the raw ZBrush .ZTL file of this project free to all for educational purposes!

You can download the model from the 'Files' section at my website: http://www.CGGallery.com

As always, any questions and critique are welcome! I've also been keeping an eye out for interesting new career opportunities, so feel free to get in touch.
I hope you enjoy my work - thanks for taking a look!

OMG, this is so beyond photo-realistic. amazing detail, right down to the wetness of the tear ducts in the eye, the stubble, even the clothing is very well done.

This is amazing. Looks very real! Did you use displacement or is this decimated model?

Wow, great feeling seeing this on the top row! Thanks for the comments everyone!

Prabhakaraan - Thanks very much! Glad you like it.
unclebob - Thanks!
jdrouse - Thanks mang!
InTerceptoV - Thanks Toni! Some the knowledge you've shared about V-Ray is in him as well! This is pure displacement, no decimation. I wrote a displacement workflow article detailing my process for it on my site.
malcolmvexxed - I appreciate it!
Mr-Evil-studio - Thank you!
RAF - Thanks! It's hard to say exactly how long it took, since it was a project I'd work on during my downtime between paid work. I was also learning and experimenting with V-Ray and Mari while making him, so a lot of time was spent getting to know the software as well.

Thanks again everyone! More to come soon!

Hi

This is stunning piece. Thanks for sharing your Zbrush model I will do some practice test of VraySSS2 on it. Displacement is quite clean too..
