Textures and Shaders

To make the texture I used the Polypaint option in ZBrush. To get an accurate color reference I put the image of the concept in the spotlight and painted on the base model only. Then I picked colors and painted according to the reference (Fig.09).

Once I'd finished with Polypaint I started to export the textures: Diffuse, Normal map and Displacement. I used these to create my other maps in Photoshop (Fig.10).

After finishing my textures, I returned to Maya to configure and set up my shaders. For most parts of the model I used the Maya's misss fast skin shader in mental ray. For the eye and collar I used a default Maya phong material (Fig.11).
