    Smile The Pixie Trickster

    Hey guys

    It's been a long while since I posted, but here is my latest piece. It was inspired by two particular illustrations created by Paul Bonner, and also the movement in the sculptures of Simon Lee (Spiderzero). I really wanted to create a piece that had a lot of story-telling and dynamism.

    It was a real challenge to balance all of the elements, but the sketching phase was relatively quick and easy in Zbrush. I used a lot of zspheres and dynameshing primitives for all of the initial sculpting and composition tests.
    I have included quick mini-tutorials for how I tackled the foliage and fuzz elements in the scene.

    All of the assets we're created to run in realtime, and the final scene was rendered inside of Marmoset Toolbag. I hope you like it!


    Cheers,





    Here are shots and turntables of the individual assets in the scene.

























    Here is a quick breakdown of how I tackled the foliage with nanomesh.

    Default Fuzz Breakdown and Clay Renders

    Here is the breakdown of the fuzz process used on the Canopic Doll characters.



    Some basic clay renders of the scene.









    Here is a simplified turntable of the final scene, without the background.
