while many of you are doing a character I thought to do one myself. And here is what has kept me busy and sidetracked in the last time. I’ve been pushing the verts, loops and poles of this head in over 150 iterations already. Now I think I have a first presentable result for you.
Everything is still WIP and especially the shader and the texture are subject to future changes. Several maps are still missing. And it needs more color variation. And if I really render the face at a bigger resolution I’ll have to work hard on the textures. Personally I think there is too much subsurface scattering happening, but I’m following the main stream here.
The title is borrowed from the movie. And the whole scene is inspired by a scene photo, that I saw and which you may also know. I don’t plan to make a complete copy of the scene, but to recreate it. But what would describe the subject of the tread better than “ex machina”.
My apologies that I took this up and didn’t continue my work on the harbor or the needless things for now. But I thought that some character practice would be appropriate. And none of the other projects is abandoned, you know.
