Catfish Guard

Welcome to my first entry for a Rookie Contest 2022. I found this awesome concept art "Catfish Guard" by Rudy Siswanto on Artstation and I decided to create this character in 3D. I hope you guys like it.

For the character I started with ZSpheres in Zbrush. Then I started to sculpt and block out the shapes of the body. After that, I retopologized it and did the UVs in Maya. I imported the low poly mesh into Zbrush, projected everything and started with a little detail sculpt.

All the other Accessories like the belt, ropes, cloth…etc. were done in Maya by me.

Afterwards, I did all the texturing in Substance 3D Painter.

Here is a turntable with a hdri rotating.

To start with the posing I used the rigging tool with ZSperhes from Zbrush, next I imported a low resolution model into Maya. After putting lights in the scene, I started to do the shading with Arnold. In the end, I rendered and did a little of compositing in Nuke.

I learend a lot from this project, for example to be more organzied and having a cleaner workflow.

Thank you very much for your attention!
