Long life to Embark studio and its fabulous procedural artists dream team !

truly excellent and inspiring to read. Would have loved to read some on the texturing since that is top-notch.

great environment with a lovely serene sense. Thanks for the write-up!

Raising the Bar for Realistic Portraits
14 June, 2018

Ian Spriggs continues to amaze us with his stunning realistic portraits. The artist has recently presented his ‘Portrait of Cassidy’ and it is mind-blowing once again. 

The character here is based on his old friend’s daughter. Just check out those little details! Ian used Maya and Mudbox to model and texture the scene. Please note that no scans were used.

The hair this time was done in XGen, and then the whole thing was rendered with V-Ray.

I am pleased to present my latest portrait, a commission from a good friend of his daughter Cassidy. 
It was exciting to see that this piece was used for the cover of 3D World Magazine. 
It was modeled and textured in Maya and Mudbox, no scans were used, the hair is my first attempt at XGen, it was rendered with V-Ray and some small touch-ups done in Photoshop.

If you want to learn a little bit more about his techniques, make sure to read his interview with 80.lv.
