First of five little personal projects about the characters of Zerocalcare, an Italian comic book author. This is the main character, the alter ego of the author. It was challenging to make a quite static pose and keeping expressiveness. I tried to represent some major features of his personality, such as feeling uncomfortable and judged.
Modeling was done mainly in Cinema 4d (I used ZBrush only for a preliminary volumes study). I used Substance Designer to create the base materials for all the clothes and the pavement, then I used 3d Coat to add weathering and hand paint the head. Rendering in Arnold for c4d.
