This is a personal project based on an illustration by Gabriel Soares. This design tells a beautiful story about being humble and true to yourself, and it inspired me to recreate this piece even more.
Gabriel sent me reviews and corrections on how he envisioned his character in 3D space. I really enjoyed taking on this huge challenge, translating as much as possible without losing the the appeal and stroke from the original artwork.
Also I wanted to explore visual styles over a cartoon character.
Sculpted in Zbrush. Textures made in Substance Painter. For the hair I used the Hairfarm Plugin for 3dsMax, and rendered in V-Ray.
I will be doing the 3D printed version soon!
