Hello everyone, my name is Wang Xiaoyu, and I am a student in China. I am pleased to talk to you about my new work, 'Beenpod Blooming'.
Making the pose
In China, there's an ancient saying "a woman looks prettier when she looks back back over her shoulder with a smile. So, I chose this pose for this still.
I imaged that the girl was dancing when she looked back to the camera and smile. This is the pose that I imagined.
There should be lots of detail in the eyelid and the eyelashes. Eastern girls always have soft eyelashes, especially the lower eyelashes. So, I chose transparency map for the eyelashes below, because transparency map ‘faking fur' looks more soft. I chose the hairfx for the top eyelashes because the lashes should look harder.
You can see below, the upper eyelashes look harder, and the lower lashes look more soft, that's the distinguishing feature between transparency map and hairfx for eyelashes.
For the model of the eyeball I prefer the double-deck model. You can see the difference between double-deck model and only one model with textures for eyeballs.
