I am new here and I have no experience in CGI or 3D art whatsoever. I am hugely interested though and I believe I can learn to do it, even just at the basic level, but first I need a little help to understand what it is exactly that I want to learn.
I am a visual artist/photographer, and I want to be able to do this with the humans that I am photographing. Basically I would like to create an image, and then, in the post production I want to make these humans look like CGI models. I am attaching some photos as an example of the type of models/skin that I would like to create.
As you can see, the 1st image has some body parts which are created to look like a marble (or some kind of material) statue. Is this something that is possible to achieve in a 3D software?
Does anyone know which softwares I would need to use to create this kind of imagery?
Is it possible to achieve these effects from just having a photograph as a base?
I am so sorry for my weird way to explain things. Like I said, I don’t have any experience and I don’t quite know the “language” of the CGI/3D artists’ world. I hope you understand what I mean! Thank you so much for any advice!
