Let's start with Frida Kahlo. She is a representative of the Mexican culture, where her strong character, her physical characteristics and her identity are reflected in this character. Modeled in Maya and Zbrush, textured in Substance painter, Hair with Xgen and Render with Arnold.

During my vacations in Colombia, my native country that I love so much, I had an inspiration while traveling through the villages of Antioquia. The motochiva! it reminds me of the folklore and creativity of our country. That's why I wanted to recreate it in 3D doing the modeling in Maya and the texturing in Substance Painter and Illustrator. I hope you like it.

in this project I wanted to experiment with realism, clearly I chose a colorful animal that we can find in Latin America. Did you know they tend to change color to warm up or cool down? 
I did the modeling in Zbrush, texturing in Photoshop and Substance Painter

I am happy to share with you my Anthropomorphic character. I wanted to highlight the mixture of cultures, taking art from particular regions that have distinct characteristics depending on beliefs, values and customs.

She is a warrior, very territorial and she is going to stand up for her believes.

Would you fight her?

Additionally, I would like to show you some projects I did during my studies at ISART Digital. It was a great experience and I feel very grateful for having had this opportunity. 

This last project was my undergraduate work that I did as a team, I was the production manager and the Character Artist (design-Modeling_texturing-Blendhsapes-CFX)   hope you like it!
