Thx guys! Nothing special shader wise, as you can see in the screenshot I'm using SkinShader4 (which comes with Zbrush) + some color correction tweaks in photoshop
Is that even 3D? Awsome!!

Looking really good! You've got to show us a 360 of the model.
Very cute and very nice style Renaud, love it !
Hey guys, here's the "finished" piece. It's not much of an update (I fixed a few little things based on feedback) but I need to move on something else
Thanks again to Matteo De Longis for his inspirational artbook! Make sure to follow him, he's an amazing artist.
Model turn around :
Before posting the model breakdown, I also wanted to share my custom "left handed" setup + a couple of custom brushes I have been using for a little while now.
You can download the UI, alpha, modified matcap and brushes here : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/..._Setup_1.0.rar
Additional UI credits :

If you know who created this custom alpha, please let me know!
Quick model creation breakdown :
1. To sculpt the bust, I used a base mesh offered by another amazing artist ( http://luckilytip.blogspot.com ). The texture is pure polypaint + some custom alphas for the tattoos.
2. The hair was sculpted from a sphere using Dynamesh. The additional hair strands were sculpted using the "CurveStrapSnap" brush and a custom curve modifier that impact the size and intensity (based on this video tutorial by Steve James : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLoL19_0nDQ )
3. Matcap breakdown detail.
4. Some meshes were modeled in maya and added to the scene before being posed and polypainted. Finally, I used the "CurveTube" brush to quickly generate the headphone cables.
And last, here's a quick animated .gif that shows some of the steps I used to create the final image. I only used 2 renders (one regular BPR and one flatcolor) that I mixed together + some tweaks in photoshop
I hope you'll like it
Thanks for the great breakdown! Lots of good information here
Love the style! And thanks for the extra information and resources; they'll be really helpful!
Oh man, you worked on Guild Wars.... I lost thousands of hours to that game when I wasn't trying to create anything. You did cover art? Concept?
Well I think that's pretty damn cool
I sometime find that SkinShade4 isn't anywhere in the list, do you have the same problem?
Great! only one question where did you get the matcap skinshade4 please
