Software used:
MODO, ZBrush
As a starting point for a Diffuse map, I used a skin sample taken from the back of a male reference image I found on www.3d.sk. Then I placed the Displacement map over the skin sample and set it to Overlay blending mode. I did the rest of the details by poly painting inside ZBrush, except for the lips which I took from an actual photo (Fig.04).

Rendering

For the rendering I chose modo 401 because of its incredible speed and quality. For the lighting I used one of the environment images from modo's assets and set it to illuminate the model with Global Illumination. No additional lights were used in this scene. As for the material setup, you can check out my Making Of - Starfleet Officer here on 3DTotal.  

Once I'd rendered the bust with golden rings and a piece of cloth, I switched to 3ds Max to make some hairs for the head and cloth. All of that could have been easily done in modo, but I wanted to try this great Hairfarm plugin. So I exported my model as an FBX, did the hair and combined all the passes from the hair and my main model in Photoshop (Fig.05).

And with that the image was finished! I hope you've enjoyed this Making Of.
