Bleach - Ichigo Fan Art
Cycles, 3000 samples, filmic, MBlab add-on, hair with curves (tutorial by pancake_manicure), cloth weaver for overcoat, hdri lighting, 3 point light plus emphasis lights, post processed with Paintshop Pro, all new elements
Completely threw out my timer on this one. I use these challenges as speed modeling practice and force myself to stay under 6 hours for modeling. Probably like 10 hours straight modeling all the elements. It has helped immensely. I may not be better but I am faster. It also helped my insomnia kicked in last night. About a 3 hour render, which is exactly how much sleep I got this morning after the sun rose.
Not super happy with the pose I chose but I am not going back and try to redo all of it. Fitting the clothes to the model always takes forever. I still have not perfected getting clothes to work well with the armature and body collision. At some point I have to work on that some more.
P.S. Okay. It was driving me nuts. Fixed the arm so its a little lower and I think that went a long ways to fixing the weird pose. Changed the material on the lettering as well.
Applied same post processing filters to an old model I built a while ago. Surprised me to learn there is a Metal Gear anime.
