For me, the challenge was to make a cool hair texture. After struggling with Photoshop, I decided to come back to my favorite method: procedural texturing. I made it by blending/mixing some noisy gradients as you can see in Fig.06.

Fig. 06 - Click to Enlarge

The scarf, jacket, badges, jeans and shoes were made with simple Photoshop texturing (Fig.07). The skin material is a simple standard material with skin color and falloff.

Scene Setup and Rendering

The scene setup was quite simple. I used a V-Ray Sun as the principal light, with a warm Omni (Fig.08) and GI. Then I rendered a few passes (Light/Diffuse/Occlusion/Zdepth), imported them into Photoshop and applied some color correction and exposure control (Fig.09).

That's all folks (Fig.10)! I hope you've enjoyed this making of and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at or If you like this little guy you can find him at his Facebook page ( where you can see some pictures of the art toy) and there is still my portfolio at
