3ds Max, Maya, V-Ray, ZBrush

ZBrush Part

When all UV mapping has been done, it was time to take it into Zbrush. Zbrush imports and exports .dxf and .obj file formats. So by exporting the mesh from Maya to .obj file format made this step easy. The mesh was then smoothed or subdivided about 6 times, so I could paint or sculpt in the detail as I wanted. The painting process was straight forward, just adding detail after detail gradually. And not adding new subdivision levels before I needed to. An important thing I had to remember this not to rush things, because at the same time as I was modelling/sculpting, I was also learning the program. I wanted to have a expression on the face that was suitable for a warrior, so I used my own facial expressions as a reference when I was sculpting. When I felt happy with the result, I exported the displacement map from Zbrush, and by applying that image in Max as a displacement map, I could render the changes I had done.
