Two Women Taking a Romantic Stroll
This project took a long a twisted path.
Made with Maya, Substance Painter, Photoshop, and Zbrush.
I first began this piece January, 2020. I did the bulk of the sculpting, texturing and high poly baking between then and March. I also did my first round of rigging and posing of the two women, which can be viewed below in the progress gallery. I created very basic rigs, so I could pose and publish them before refining it for further animation use.
Then a pandemic hit, and this project was left behind.
Two days before Valentine's Day 2021, I was struck by a sudden determination to compose a scene with the two models that I could be proud of. I am happy with the models and proud of my improvement in texturing and UV Layout. It was a shame to leave all of that work in the proverbial broom closet. I used the rigs as well as they could be and organically sculpted the poses from there. Then I set up the scene in Unreal engine with a tree model I had created for the project, and Unreal basics to fill out the background.
The journey, starting with the beginning steps and continuing until the end.
