Software used:

The next step was to think about a pedestal. I had three options: a ruin, a pillar or a classic rectangular carved stone. I decided to go for the ruins and the stone, and used some photo references to sculpt it (Fig.17 - 18).

My lighting setup was quite simple: I used two lights (spot with shadows and a simple spherical light) and a slightly sunlit ambience. For the render setup I activated the rendered occlusion and bloom (Fig.19 - 20).

I posed the character using Transpose Master linked with a ZSphere rig in ZBrush (Fig.21).

After that it was just a matter of presentation and submitting the final image (Fig.22 - 24).

That's it (Fig.25)! I hope you enjoyed this Making Of. It was an amazing competition, full of lots of fun and discoveries. Congrats to all who took part!

II'm not an expert in Graphic Computing to games, but I am an expert in Geoprocessing and know the basis of the science of image. Rodrigo is my son and I know his work but never could see the process of character and its complexity. I'm very impressed. Congratulations (I'm not a "hockey dad") Rodrigo.

Isn't time to stop calling these tutorials? They're not tutorials. It's more a show and tell. It's just misleading to call them tutorials.
