In the midst of all my not-at-all-artistic finals, I needed a break today and came back to this guy for a few hours. I softened up some of his features, added a slight expression, and blocked out his clothing a bit more in Mudbox, then brought him into Maya. I began to mess around with shaders and added livelier eyes. Finally, I started to experiment with a funky hair system. Hopefully you can tell that each curl is a stylized little spiral of hair. I think it looks pretty cool. He was a redhead for a little while and I liked it a bit more, but I think grey hair will better suit his personality once I get the color down.
I finished writing my graduation speech a few days ago and picked up my cap and gown today. If my speech makes it to youtube I’ll be sure to post it here! I am really excited. I can’t believe how close I am to graduating. Time can really fly.
Sorry for the dead blog! It always tends to drop off around my finals, but hopefully I’ll be posting more soon
