Realistic 3D Female Portrait Inspired by the Chinese Dragon

Vick Wen unveiled a new original character made using ZBrush, Substance 3D Painter, V-Ray, and UE5.

3D Character Artist Vick Wen has recently paid tribute to the Chinese dragon, also known as loong, by unveiling a new original character dubbed C-Loong, a photorealistic 3D female model and a "digital incarnation of the C-Loong from the Chinese Neolithic Age".

As stated by the author, the character's body was sculpted in ZBrush and textured in Mari and Substance 3D Painter, with TexturingXYZ's, 3D Scan Store's, and Triplegangers' materials having been used to set up the character's skin. As for the hair and clothes, those were made using XGen and Style3D. Finally, the artist employed Chaos' V-Ray and Unreal Engine 5 to render the character.

Over on ArtStation, the creator shared dozens of static renders and behind-the-scenes shots providing a closer look at C-Loong, we highly encourage you to visit Vick's ArtStation page to check out the entire collection:

The project was inspired by the so-called "First Loong of China", a jade C-shaped object depicting a Chinese loong (which you can also see reimagined as a necklace worn by the digital character in question):
