Gas Man
Summer 2009

A personal 3D-character project.
It's about 12730 tris.
Utilizes one 2048x2048 texture for color, spec and normals.
I wanted to try out a new and more flexible workflow with this character focusing less on sculpting and more on subD-modeling and retopologizing.
All normals were baked in Maya while I used 3ds Max and Zbrush for all retopologizing.
Almost all texturing was done in Photoshop (with the exception of a couple of details that were hand painted in Zbrush).
