Female game character (nudity), Steven Stahlberg (3D)



Title: Female game character (nudity)
Name: Steven Stahlberg
Country: Malaysia
Software: Maya, Photoshop

This was a job for NCSoft's game Tabula Rasa, to be published in Playboy's November issue. It's online here:
http://www.playboy.com/magazine/features/video-game-babes/
(Please vote if you like!) :D

I used Maya and Mudbox, Mental Ray for render, then some Photoshop painting. The brief was to take their character Sarah Morrison, a hardened alien-killer, and make her Playboy material.

WOW!

Great work on the breasts, they actually look like they have weight to them, the skin texture is wonderful as well.

I believe we need a tutorial or at least "how I did it" here!

Beautiful work.

Personally, I can't beleive you stoop so low as to make this soft porn. Sure, there's a market for it, and a big one, but taking part in articles portraying topless game heroines is the sort of behaviour I'd expect from sniggering teenage boys, not talented artists.
I realise some people will do anything for a quick buck, but I'd be interested to know where you'd draw the line.

No offense but you have two naked figures in your CGPortfolio, where do you draw the line?

Nice work. Overall I really like her, the pinup effect definetly works. The face being the strongest part, I like how the nose is being lit out, and just the whole expression/ eye contact works. (How much is render, and how much painted/corrected?)
On her body some points bug me though. First her shoulders being quite wide/big compared to face and hips. But that could be a personal taste matter. Also the neck somehow doesnt work for me, and distracts. Cant fully point out what it is, but again it seems to wide (little bit) and also too tensed, while I would expect (or prefer) to see it more relaxed and smooth in this pose.
Great natural breast, more artist should work on their research regarding this subject, hehe.
Last point that distracts, is the tattoo on the pelvis area, wich seems rushed and added last minute, doesnt come across as a tattoo.(misses the painterly more traditional treatment)
But as always, a pleasure to see new work from you. Good to see you started using an app. like mudbox aswell, since zbrush and you did not go together to well I believe. Cheers.


Edit: To add to the 'soft porn' comment, I would not even go that far, as for that there should be more of a clear sexual 'motif', if you'd ask me I would categorize this under glamour nude/ pinup, wich as I believe is nothing vulgair or wrong with, specially not in this form. Let's not stray into a discussion thats offtopic....
