Me and my friend Yibing Jiang just finished a collaberation project together, so we would like to share with you guys here!
My name is Frank Tzeng, currently the lead character artist at Naughty Dog.
Yibing Jiang is the shader artist in our team at Naughty Dog.
The goal of this project is to make the most realistic CG render of Rober Downey Jr out there, Yibing and me have been working really hard on this on our free time every weekend together!
Yibing did texturing, shading and render them out in Vray, also make the hair in Hairfarm base on the fibermesh hair that i made from zbrush and made them even better! Including eyelashes, brows and beard.
I provide the 3d model and gave feedback almost everyweek and paintover/changing 3d model in order to make the renders more realistic and get to the quality we both want.
Here are 3 different of render results: The first one is more dramatic lights to show the shape and anatomy, the second one is lit by lit by neutral HDRI lights, third one is lit by neutral lights with Lambert shaders.
We also created an bonus piece by compositing the render result with ironman digital panel to match the iron man feeling.
Created with Zbrush, 3ds Max, Vray, Photoshop, Mari and Hairfarm.
Hope you guys like it!!
