Introduction

Hi everyone! First of all, thank you very much to the 3DTotal team for giving us the chance to write this tutorial - I hope it proves to be helpful to many artists out there.

Anyway this artwork was actually done by a team of three artists to promote the capability of our new animation studio, which specializes in a high quality 3D animation service, called Enspire Studio. As for the The Chase itself, we were trying to get an action-oriented sci-fi scene, combined with surreal lighting, set in the distant future.

The credits for the team are as follows:

• Character modeling: Herwin Arkiando
• Environment modeling: Susan Angela
• Lighting/Shader/Compositing: Andre Surya

References

References were important for this piece as we were creating a character and environment that is out of this world. Therefore we decided to combine lots of references of many great robotic sci-fi CG pictures from the internet.

Modeling

The modeling was a challenging part, particularly for the character as we wanted to get the right combination of fast-moving-ninja-like robot, but not lose his body proportions at the same time. The character design itself was actually a brainstorming idea based on feedback from someone else in team. Here is the character detail from a different angle (Fig.01).

Here is the wireframe version (Fig.02).

Really beautiful work. I love the choice of action pose and color scheme. I actually prefer the second to last image of the scene to the finished version because of the clarity. There is a snap to it that grabbed me immediately. Thanks for some great inspiration.
