Queen Eemirée and Jericho Interceptor

Hello everyone, I am glad to share with you the two personnal projects I did aside of my graduation movie From Above in ArtFx. Those two projects were my way to improve my knowledge of photorealistic asset creation.

I will start with a bit of background: Eemirée is the queen of an extraterrestrial planet called Malito. She is a very powerful warrior but also a melancholic being as she faces violence and absurdity of her kin.

This project was a playground to push further my knowledge of character art and experiment new technics such as grooming in houdini. I learnt a lot through this project since it dealt with many aspects of CG creation (organic modelling, hard surface, clothes, lighting,...)

One of my challenges was not to use any XYZ map. Everything is sculpted an textured by hand. I hope to have better results in the future but this choice allowed me to learn much more about how skin works than if I had used scans as a base.

This ship was my way to dive back into hard surface after being more involved into organic modelling. I chose to make a fan art of the concept by Vadzmin Makaranka for Star Conflict (https://www.artstation.com/artwork/lDmaz). I was quite fund of its style and silhouette. I tried to stick as close as possible to the proportions but I had to invent some details to gain interest on certain areas that were too plane.

UVs + Wireframe / Roughness / Metalness / Albedo / Final

I will conclude by saying the ship was a lot of fun to work on, and I would have liked to push further the texturing in order to add storytelling.

However, character art remains my main focus and I hope I will soon join the industry in this department.

I hope you enjoyed my projects!
