Onoki was a character that's purpose resonated with me from he's debut in Naruto. The whole idea behind Onoki is that you are never too old to learn, grow, and take action. And that there is always something you can do no matter how small in the face of adversity. He was always a character that just oozed personality and I knew he would be a fun little project to work on!
So far I have used Zbrush for 99% of this project, the remaining 1% is the sole of his sandals which was made in Maya.
One consideration I'm not quite sure on yet is the usage of color gradients on he's tabard. For example, I have already used it on he's back tabards, but not the front ones. Just to get an idea of what it might feel like. Let me know what you think!
My focal points for this project that I wish to improve the most are my texturing, and my overall displaying skills.
I have left some self-critique and a mood board of reference to get started, and will be focusing on nice crispy stylized cloth folds next!
I would be eternally grateful for any and all insight on this project. Let's make this little guy an eye-popping portfolio piece!
