Digital: Docker

Docker - 01


Bust of a docker, combining a black and white photo of a dock worker with another image of an old man for colour and texture references. Rather than being a totally observational study, I hoped this would be useful in a push towards character development, working in a more exaggerated style, but using realistic looking surfaces, materials and lighting. This experiment was fairly successful, although rendering the images for the flattened export was somewhat time consuming, as running a Best render followed by a BPR render to get the highest quality image took a few minutes for each image, and positioning the model at full res resulted in some instability and lag in Zbrush, despite working to minimalise the file size.
