Once I was satisfied with the face, I used ZBrush's Decimation Master and brought the reduced model into Blender, where I quickly went about reconstructing the face with better topology (Fig.05). I find Blender's poly modeling very efficient for this task. Once the ideal topology was done, I brought it back to ZBrush to transfer the sculpt details from the original head and also to refine the sculpt a little (Fig.06).
The next task was to build the body. For this, I brought the model into Maya and, using box modeling, I slowly built it part by part. I constantly paid attention to the model's silhouette and kept refining the contours of the body (Fig.07). To get the details, I used Maya's Crease tool (Fig.08) for hard edges and lots of floating geometries (Fig.09), a trick I picked up from Dominance War IV's winning entry.
Echo0 on Mon, 21 April 2014 9:38pm Since my previous comment was cut off- Not only do I think the model was a success, I disagree with some of the other comments posted. To me she does look older than the comic samples on reference sheet while still being easily recognizable to who she is- something a lot of people have a hard time achieving. The texture sheets were also very impressive. Good job.

Massey on Wed, 01 December 2010 7:56pm A nice job on the modelling - but your final model looks almost identical the one in your reference pics, not much "older or younger", but oh well.

Seems to me like the basic concept, and most of the details are something you "picked up" from that as well.
Still looks impressive though
