Here's a new project I'm working on. I want to try to show the progress in a thread here, I'm still not sure how this site works.
Here is how my model look now. The hi-poly is of the character is mainly done.
Translating a 2d concept to 3d is a challenge, I changed the face and proportions a lot since I started, and I'm pretty satisfied with how it looks now.
This project served as my final project of the year, I've been learning a lot of new stuff since July so I want to compile all my new skills to this project. Hopefully, I can finish this before the year ends.
My final goal of this project is to make a mix of stylized and realistic render. I want the model to still look stylized but the textures and lighting are more realistic. I'm still not sure how I should handle the hair, whether I should use hair cards.
It's based on a concept by Kyoung Min Yoo https://www.artstation.com/artwork/xzy9gX
Note: Compared to my previous study project posts, this particular project hasn't been getting much attention on my social media. It does looks good to me, but others don't care (?). Is it that bad? It makes me question if I should continue to do this project, whether this will be a waste of time or not.
