Hi my name is Martin Nikolov and this is a project overview for my image: The Girl with the Plastic Flower.
It is a personal work, made one day in my free time for fun. I started started with no specific idea; I just wanted to model a girl, with a kind of vintage look. I did some research and gathered references for the face and her haircut, then for the gloves, helmet and accessories later on. It started just for practice, then I added more details and decided to made a render of it, and give it a more finalized look.
I started with sculpting the face in ZBrush from PolySpheres, using DynaMesh. I think it's the fastest way to start with modeling, because you have a lot of freedom in the beginning, and you can quickly experiment with the shape and form with no topology boundaries. The brushes I use the most in this process are the Move and Clay brushes, with lots of smoothing. For the hair, I used DynaMesh too as at this stage I didn't know I was going to give her a helmet (Fig.01).
