This is my attempt to make a high quality character. I am really having a lot of fun making the assets and the shading of the skin

Hi! This has been a really challenging month for us all, but i think that all the hard work payed off,  i am extremely happy with the result of this piece, this took me so far, and made me see that i have a lot to learn, but thats the best part of it, the progress and the results!

By participating in this challenge, i can finally say i consider myself a 3D Character Artist! I received a ton of feedback on this piece and i can truly say that i applied everything people told me to change, from the primary shapes to the light and pose. I also improved my shading skills, because before this project i wasnt able to do realistic metal surface.

The workflow to do this character was next:

Scultping in Zbrush | Retopology and UV Mapping in Maya 2019 |  Texturing in Substance Painter and Zbrush | Posing in Zbrush | Lightin and Rendering done with Redshift 2.6

Hope u like it, and thanks to all the nice people who helped me to achieve this!

Finally doing the shading of the face and the eyes, kinda like the feeling they are giving, obviusly the displacement map is still a WIP, but the  hardwork will pay off, by now i made only the base color and the specular. For the armor, retopology was kinda tricky but i like the results.
