Software used:
Maya, ZBrush

Retopology

When I achieved a base mesh that resembled the subject (Fig.04), before starting to sculpt the fine details I needed to retopologize my mesh. I did that in Maya, using a plugin called NEX, which has a function called Quad-Draw that allowed me to easily draw polygons on top of my high poly mesh (Fig.05).

When the retopo was done (Fig.06), I added one step of Mesh Smooth, to have some more resolution on the model before I did the UVs (Fig.07).

UVs and Projection

I made the UVs in a tool called UVLayout which, in my opinion, is the best tool on the market for making UVs (Fig.08). After that, I imported my new model back into ZBrush, and projected the details of my base mesh into my new retopo model with UVs (Fig.09).
