Name: Greger Pihl
Software: Maya Photoshop ZBrush
Submitted: 18th January 2010
This is a 3d remake of a painting by Paul Bonner Ive been working on for a while. I have learned so much from this.
Check out his work here: www.paulbonner.net
I used Maya for doing base meshes and then sculpted all the details i ZBrush.
When all details where in place the sculpts where polyreduced with decimation master in zbrush, making it possible to import all parts into maya. (the final scene was about 8 million polys, all the sculpts together without reducing is about 80 million)
Grass was added using Paint effects in Maya, the hair and beards as well.
When all things were in place the image was rendered as a grayshaded image with Maya Mental ray. Spec- Reflection- Ambient occlusion- and mask-passes where also rendered.
Finally the image was composed, textured and colorized using Photoshop.
