Software used:

3D sketch

So I began the 3D sketch:

- I started with ZSpheres
- I made a base mesh
- I made a sketch of the human body
- I sculpted the basic parts which were drawn in the last sketch

The stages of 3D sketching

- I did retopology

After retopology

- I did a more detailed sketch in ZBrush
- I made the final retopology and final detail in Maya

The final high polygon model


Presented above is the final texture of my Technomage. I used 3 textures; color, specular and alpha. I did not create glow as a separate texture.

I had to do correct topology to burn textures correctly from high-poly to low-poly. I then used xNormal for baking textures. This is a great program! After, I opened my black-and-white texture in Photoshop to paint iron, rubber, and glass. Finally I painted ornaments and added scratches.

This picture shows a grid of the character. I did some parts plane with transparency to save the density of the grid

After I applied the texture to the model

I made a simple setup of my Technomage and a very simple test animation. I set up the light to see how the character will look in motion.

In this video you can see Technomage in real time in viewport of Maya
