I worked for some months in my spare time on this personal 3D project “Space Cadet” a character with anime characteristics, based on a concept of Guillaume Singelin, a French comic artist who has a lot of inspiration from Manga artists like Akira Toriyama(Dragon Ball) and Katsushiro Otomo(Akira). This is the fifth project of the series. The main topic to learn was Substance Designer to make some patterns. I made a guide of the workflow, this includes YouTube timelapse videos. Also if you are really interested you can download the clay render for free.
