How to Win a Mill Challenge?
22 September, 2017

Check out an interview with this year’s Mill winning artists that shared some details on the creative process behind their amazing works. The competition didn’t have a theme this time, so this was all about pure creativity.

After some concepting, I decided to make a portrait of a girl with birds dashing from her head; a representation of ideas trying to escape from a person`s mind. I knew I was going for a stylized, sculptural look. To add more interest to the visuals, I picked a translucent material with a light, shining inside.

I ZBrushed most of my elements and made a rough composition there. I then exported things out to Cinema 4D where I finalized my composition and added extra small details. The final look was rendered with Arnold with some small touch up in Photoshop.
