This work was done as a jewelry piece for a client who wanted madam leota’s face as a cameo to sit in the center of the mirror base. Based off Leota from the Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort.
Another model that was done this quarter. (Wrapped up completion about a few days ago) The initial design of this creature was intended to be more of a carnivorous herbivore (yes, you read correctly) but as time went on it really started to bother me, so I ended up starting over, a decision I do not regret.
Final render, composited in Photoshop:
For this creature I decided to start with Zspheres:
I used ZRemesher and some guides to generate a loy poly mesh, then reprojected the details, finished the sculpt and polypainted the model.
Quick posing was done using Zbrushes transpose master:
