RUI PANG| 3D Artwork Research Collection | Entry 2020
Hi, My name is Rui Pang, Here is a collection of my 3D artwork research projects throughout my school year at Media Design School, Auckland. I would like to focus on modeling and texturing as my future career. I am very grateful to be able to show my artworks and to learn from others on this fantastic platform. Cheers!
PROJECT_001: This is my 3D Portrait likeness practice of Scarlett Johansson, which I have done during the school lockdown period in 2020 (Thanks for the pandemic). I was in charge of the whole process, which included hand-sculpted models, handpainted Maps + XYZ maps, grooming, lighting, look development. The most amount of time that I was expending on was in the refinement process, as I wanna try my best to make all her visual elements as closer to the reference as possible. There were lots of trials and errors during the production, I was managing to do research and problem solving, especially the hair generation, cos it was my first time to use Xgen in MAYA. I know there was still a lot of room to improve closing to the deadline, but it was definitely a really good chance for me to break through my limitation and improve myself.
The software I used was Maya, Zbrush, Mari, Substance Painter, and Marvelous Designer.

There are some of the reference images below. As you can see from those images, she looks so different in different shots, with different makeup conditions. I had to manage to defined her most noticed visual features that help to build up her likeness.
PROJECT_002: "Insomnia"_This Still life 3D artwork was my class project, I went through the whole production process which includes researching, concept development, studio photography, studio lighting setup, studio-based HDRI generation, Modeling, Texturing, look-development, Lighting, Rendering and Compositing.
The main purpose of this practice was to create a set of 3D realistic assets based on real-life photo references.
The software I used was Maya, Zbrush, Mari, Substance Painter, and Nuke.
Here are some of the reference images below, and the experiments I did in our school photography studio, which are demonstrating the researches about surfacing details, different lighting conditions, and compositions.
Thank you for your time :)
