CHARACTER PROFILE

REFERENCES

After I had written my synopsis, I gather some visual references and tried to get some references that fit the character personality and age. I also tried to observe Dr. Seuss art style from the movie and the illustrations that was found on internet.

MODELING

In the stage of modeling, I had created my model in Zbrush first and import my model into Maya. After that, I use the quad draw tool to retopology my model. Although I personally think that the model looks better in Zbrush than Maya after I retopologize the model, I think that I am satisfied with my final 3D model character.
