This is a personal project I've been working on just for fun. I used a various traditional sculpture and photos of rhinos as reference, but apart from that, its my first stab at designing something like this myself. I'm more used to working from someone else's concept.
This piece will form part of the MONKEYZOMBIEROBOT exhibition, and hopefully it will be 3D printed in time for the show!
Base meshes and accessories modelled in maya, organic stuff in zbrush. Rendered in max with vray.
