After posing the character, it was time to finish the sculpt. First I refined the face and hands. Then the body was refined and I sculpted some extra texture for it. Another tool in ZBrush that came in very handy for this was the Surface tool. I created a very simple UV for the body using the UV Master tool. Some polygroups were also made to help the tool create the UVs (Fig.07).

Then, by using the Surface tool and adjusting some of its options, it was possible to create this hex tile texture for the clothes. When I use this technique, I pay attention to the density of the mesh (always in a high state). I always store a morph target of my mesh and I do the deformation in a layer of the subtool (Fig.08).

Before sculpting the surface modifier, I masked it out and used the deformation option (Inflat). Then I applied it to the model (Fig.09).

After adding some final touches to the sculpt, I stated to do the painting. All the objects were hand-painted using only ZBrush. The process was really simple; I just picked some colors, adjust the intensity of them, chose an alpha and then applied them (Fig.10).
