This is my collaboration with awesome 3d character artist - Maria Panfilova. She gave me this model and I made the all grooming(hair,fur,feathers) + lookdev+lighting+render work for it =)
Maria gave me Substance Painter file, so I exported the all textures and adapted them to Vray Next.
Hair and fur was created with Ornatrix Maya. Rendered with new Vray Next beta for Maya on very fast Vray.Cloud
Awesome HDRi from https://hdrihaven.com/
Slide down to watch info about guides =)
For bear body and bear head I created many guides. because it is more comfortable for me in this work, but for simulation of course I recommend 2000-3000 or smaller =)
Render was done on a very fast Vray.Cloud. Awesome magic cloud =) ChaosGroup made incredible =) Given the ability to render simultaneously on 50 fast servers .. and this is still beta, still didn't connect the GPU servers... Thank you ChaosGroup!
