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).

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.
