The Counterattack

Emerson Silva takes us through the processes behind his creation, The Counterattack, inspired by Illustractor Studio artist Edil Araújo.


Step 1: Concept

It all begins with choosing the concept, and this time I chose a concept made by the great artist Edil Araújo from Ilustractor Studio. With his 2D concept in my hands, I analyzed and searched for references that would help me determined the types of textures I would work with.

Step 2: Base Mesh

Every time I create a 3D illustration, I make the base mesh in 3ds Max. I use the symmetry as much as I can and then I make the pose, so I don't need to worry about setting up a rig. In this project, my base ended up by being very simple, so I could see good balance and proportion between elements.

Step 3: Sculpt

After I made the base mesh in 3ds Max, I began the sculpture in ZBrush. At this point, I really started to see the general shape and atmosphere of the project better, and was glad to see the character become more real.
