Freelance 3D artist Gustavo Profeta gives us a quick breakdown of how he made Viking in ZBrush
This artwork is based on a concept by the talented Marco Furtado. I wanted to have a play testing materials such as leather, iron, and skin and what better character to use as a model than a Viking! This was also my first time working with hair and fur and was a bit of a challenge.
Using a copy of the original concept I started sculpting with ZBrush, once I had the basic shape of the character I moved on to doing some retopology. I like to use Topogun to retopolgize each part of the model. Topogun is a great tool for getting meshes ready for production, to add more details and if you want to animate your character. Head here to see a short video of my modeling process.
用一份原始的概念，我开始雕刻在ZBrush，我曾有过的基本形状特征我在做一些拓扑。 我喜欢使用Topogun重新塑造模型的每个部分。 Topogun是一个伟大的工具，让网格准备生产，如果你想让你的角色，添加更多的细节，在这里看到我的建模过程
After opening the UVs on UVLayout, I exported the low obj file to ZBrush and start detailing each part to create normal, ambient occlusion, and cavity maps. You can see a video of my detailing process here.
I tried several times to use V-Ray hair material but I wasn't able to get the results I wanted. I have found a new way (for me) to approach making hair, I use splines for long hair, selected and extracted meshes for short strands such as sideburns, beard, and chest hair. As the splines and meshes needs different color setups, I split the materials into two parts. I used 3ds Max's hair & fur material (not V-RayMtlHair) which gave me good results.
我几次试图使用V-Ray头发材料但我没能得到我想要的结果。我找到了一种新的方法（对我来说）做发型，我使用样条为长长的头发，选择和提取网格的短链如鬓角、胡须、胸毛。由于样条和网格需要不同的颜色设置，我将材料分为两部分。 我使用3ds Max的头发和毛皮材料（不是V-RayMtlHair），它给了我很好的结果。
I did some tests to render the Viking in the same position as the concept, but it wasn't impressive as the concept, so I changed the story slightly by going back in time to before the Viking caught the Unicorn. In my image he is waiting for his prey in the forest. Watch this video to see my lighting process.
Here is the final image. I hope you have enjoyed learning how I make my creations. Thank you for reading!
