Childish Gambino

Hey There. I never post, but I thought this might be worth sharing. This is some concept sculpting work I did at Google for Childish Gambino’s AR avatar, used through the “Playground” app on the Pixel.

We went for a stylized likeness. I try to use Zbrush whenever I get the chance, and this was the perfect opportunity for it. We also experimented with some 3D prints and I’ve included a few images of the results.

This was also used in an ad that aired during the Grammy’s:

These are some early facial expression tests using Zbrush. Layers came in handy.
