Take a look at two pictures. One is a photo by cosplayer Shirogane-sama, as Nier: Automata’s 2B. The other one is a 3D recreation from Chauliac Romain.
The 3D model looks so realistic that it is hard to tell the difference. The artist used Maya, Arnold and ZBrush to create an astonishing piece, and you have to admit that the result is something else.
The goal of this personal project is to study how to create a believable character working on a middle distance to then re-use on other project.
I’m based on a photo reference from the main video game’s character NieR: Automata.
I made the study based on a @Shirogane-sama Cosplay.
The other objective was to realized it on a short amount of time during Christmas holiday, so it’s took me about 3 weeks of work.
