Hello folks, 

This is my entry for The Rookies contest of 2021, a 3D portrait, likeness practice of Ben Stiller. Hope You enjoy it!

The model was sculpted in ZBrush.
Inside Maya I made a scene with 3D models and camera accompanied with Arnold lights and shaders.
I used Mari to setup xyz textures ( onto the Ben's head. Beside using xyz textures, I also sculpted a level of tertiary details inside Zbrush HD Geo.
With Marvelous Designer I made his shirt that was painted and textured in Substance Painter.
I used both Xgen Description and Xgen Interactive for hairs.
Final render view was made in Arnold renderer.
The final render image was enhanced in Photoshop and Alien Exposure.
Head has 4 UDIMs, rest (eyes, shirt) each has only 1.

ZBrush, Maya, Mari, Marvelous Designer, Substance Painter, Xgen, Arnold, Photoshop and Alien Exposure. I hope I haven't missed a thing!
