What if...?

What if Lightyear was a Mecha? This is my personal interpretation

Here's my entry for the Autodesk-Rig.B texturing contest.

I guess it's pretty obvious that my project is inspired by Buzz Lightyear: I really liked the idea of trying to put cartoon features into something more realistic and I think that this mecha/gundam style was perfect for it.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Texturing breakdown

I started by searching a lot of references to have a clear idea of the color scheme of the suite. I took inspiration by both Toys Story's Buzz and Lightyear's Buzz for the details.

For realistic detailing I also used Transformers and Pacific Rim's references.

With the help of Photoshop and Pinterest I created all the stencils and stickers that I used on the model.

I also created an environment to make the final render a little more interesting and with a sort of misterious atmosphere.

Here are some closeups of my textures!

Softwares used:

-Texturing: Substance Painter

-Lighting and Rendering: Arnold for Maya

-Post Production: Photoshop and After Effect
