this is the model i finished today (been on it for bout 3 days). she is the same woman who appeared on the cover of nat geo. the real pic was photographed by Steve McCurrey.
i am posting the character sketch i painted in PS before modelling (to understand her face,depth,muscle etc.)since it was a single perspective image.
the model was made in ZB using Zsherez n then tweaked in maya. the uvz too were layed out there. the drape was made in maya. all textures were done using ZB n PS. the final render is in maya using maya software (man! i wish i knew mental ray pretty well... ). post efeects done in PS.
