    Default Musician's Portrait (Including Free ZTL)

    It's been a while since I've been able to post some personal work, so I'm proud to present my latest project here!

    I created this project during some downtime to experiment with photo-realism and to modernize my personal workflow.
    The subject is very loosely based on the cuban jazz musician Compay Segundo of Buena Vista Social Club fame.

    Modeling was done with ZBrush and Maya, Texturing with Mari, and Lighting/Shading/Rendering with V-Ray in Maya.












    I've also been toying with the idea of sharing some of my source files with the CG Community that has given so much over the years.
    So very I'm pleased to be releasing the raw ZBrush .ZTL file of this project free to all for educational purposes!



    You can download the model from the 'Files' section on my website: CGGallery.com
    Pixologic has also been gracious enough to offer a mirror of the ZTL on their server: HERE

    As always, any questions and critique are welcome!
    I've also been keeping an eye out for interesting new career opportunities, so feel free to get in touch.
    I hope you enjoy my work - thanks for taking a look!

    Excellent work! Thank you very much for sharing your file with us. Your facial topology looks very solid, and I will certainly use your ZTL to study this topology for my own learning. Thanks, again!

    Many thanks for sharing. Wonderful work. Things like this really help me learn about skin pores, so thanks again.

    Thanks for sharing the ZTL, I can't view it though as I'm still on 4R4 (it's for 4R5 above).

    Great details everywhere, is the lower lip really like that? It seems a bit flat to me, no?
