This is my most recent asset, completed so that I could better learn how to model, sculpt, and texture organic assets. I also wanted to learn some of the basics of grooming in Xgen, so I made sure to choose a hairy species of crab. Spiny Spooner Crabs are found across the Indo West Pacific area, living at a depth of up to 20 metres below the surface. They're very colourful and bright because they are often spotted living among corals!
A short breakdown of my maps. I used a PBR workflow in Mari using the node system. It was nice to texture an organic asset with PBR, because I didn't have to use the metalness map at all!
