This is a portrait done for Kris Costa's class "Fly on the Wall"
After a month of getting my ass whooped I managed to get it to a decent place.
Although I wasn't able to test out his HD sculpting workflow during the class duration I was able to apply a lot of his methods
and techniques in bringing a portrait to life.
The class covers a wide range of topics related to portraiture and it will take a lot of practice and experimentation on my part to be able to understand them properly. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning artistic portraiture as the lessons are fun and packed with info.
I used texture xyz for the displacement, a lot of manual sculpting.
Textures are hand painted in Zbrush.
