Title: The Soulforged
Name: Julio C. Espada
Software: 3ds max, mental ray, Photoshop, ZBrush
Here is my newest artwork. As ever, i´m deeply inspired by Fantasy Art
I have used 3dsmax to model basic pieces that later in Zbrush came to live. I did a lot of Zbrushing in modeling, displacements and texturing (Projection Master is great :D). After Zbrush, it all returns to 3dsmax to get the lighting, fur and additional details. It all was rendered with Mental Ray. I had to do a lot of tricks to render without memory crashes! (original image is 2480x3507 at 300dpi)
At last, I merged all the layers in Photoshop and gave him the final light and more and more details.
If you want to see more images of the work in progress I have a thread here at cgtalk that you can reach here:
There is a higher resolution image at my website.
Hope you like it!
