The legend of the monk King

This is my first CG work. It took me a total of 5 months to learn and complete it.I am deeply grateful to my teacher Yang Guang for helping me overcome lots of difficulties.
The original oil painting was 《the legend of the monk King》 created by Spanish painter José Casado del Alisal.

Everything basically starts with a ball, no model assets used.I use ZB to suculpt highpoly model. Without ZB, it is hard to imagine that I can quickly complete such a large amount of work.
hair used xgen and rendering used Arnold.

hope you like it!
