Software used:
Photoshop, Maya, Blender, ZBrush
Once I was satisfied with the face, I used ZBrush's Decimation Master and brought the reduced model into Blender, where I quickly went about reconstructing the face with better topology (Fig.05). I find Blender's poly modeling very efficient for this task. Once the ideal topology was done, I brought it back to ZBrush to transfer the sculpt details from the original head and also to refine the sculpt a little (Fig.06).

The next task was to build the body. For this, I brought the model into Maya and, using box modeling, I slowly built it part by part. I constantly paid attention to the model's silhouette and kept refining the contours of the body (Fig.07). To get the details, I used Maya's Crease tool (Fig.08) for hard edges and lots of floating geometries (Fig.09), a trick I picked up from Dominance War IV's winning entry.

Since my previous comment was cut off- Not only do I think the model was a success, I disagree with some of the other comments posted. To me she does look older than the comic samples on reference sheet while still being easily recognizable to who she is- something a lot of people have a hard time achieving. The texture sheets were also very impressive. Good job.

A nice job on the modelling - but your final model looks almost identical the one in your reference pics, not much "older or younger", but oh well.

"To get the details, I used Maya`s Crease tool (Fig.08) for hard edges and lots of floating geometries (Fig.09), a trick I picked up from Dominance War IV`s winning entry." Seems to me like the basic concept, and most of the details are something you "picked up" from that as well. Still looks impressive though
