While in grad school, I was accepted into an Advanced 3D Modeling course. Lacertilia Mantle, is a fictional creature I made up that lives under the earth’s crust. I sketched out his character, built a low poly model in Maya, sculpted him in Mudbox then added bump maps. His skin is made out of photos of magma and alligator scales. From there, I rigged him, posed him and added a bit of environment.
