Making of on my blog:
In this project I wanted to bring a 3D scanned cockroach into my blender scene. Since I want to print it on a big canvas, I also aimed for a very high resolution render. In the end, I rendered at 10k x 10k px at 500 samples.
I used Blender 2.79, Helicon Focus 6, Helicon Remote, RealityCapture, PhotoScan, Gimp, Instant Meshes and Substance Painter. I would like to thank everybody in the blender community for putting out so many great learning resources. I extensively used tutorials from @Zacharias_Reinhardt , @andrewprice and @aendom , thanks so much guys! Also, I would like to recommend blendergrid.com for all your rendering needs, shapeways.com (I had to 3D print a cockroach holder for my rotating capture stage) and TextureHaven.com.
The project is based on an #inktober drawing I did last year:
Here’s a close up of the cockroach’s head:
