elf – finished

so here is the final model, rendered from several views. had so much fun doing his hair first from zscetch 🙂 … and, i reused the passiflora from a previous project to show what kind of elf he is 🙂

and here is the final illustration i made, ,,, i know green is crazy, but i liked it for this elf, to emphasis its habitat…

passiflora – 3

made the necessary proportion changes on the flower, and then created a leaf. to get the basemesh, i used the retopo tool on a circle, as with the flower petals. its really a nice way to get clean geometry with an even polugon distribution… this is a first test render, lightning needs more tweaking, and, of course details are missing…

passiflora – 1

tonight i started something completely different : digital botany… long years ago i had once modeled in animationmaster, a great spline modeler, a hibiscus flower and won second place in a competition with it… now, i saw at zbc a member showing his modeled gerbera, and this inspired me to try modeling flowers in zbrush too… i chose a passiflora, since i once had a very nice one, and so i am somewhat familiar with these beautiful flowers…

i started making the petals, using first a circle tool, shape that, and then remeshed it to get a good topology. before subdividing i creased the edge to form the bottom ridge… next step is to add details …
