This 3D illustration project was inspired by the well known White Walkers from the HBO TV series Game of Thrones. This version started as a ZBrush sculpting exercise from Flipped Normals that turned into this piece.
This character was sculpted from a sphere in ZBrush using
Dynamesh. After the main shape was done, I transformed it to a standard mesh using ZRemesher. I used GoZ to start implementing the lights in 3D Max and I created a 3 light studio using vRay Plane lights and a vRay physical camera.
Each 4k render took 45 minutes in an Alienware 17 with
a 3.2 GHz Intel Hasselblad.
