"Papageno" from Mozart. The man who catches the birds. This is a 3D/2D illustration. I've been inspired by the old master painting and Caravaggio for the character. My main focus was the texture and the environment. It took 1 month, with concept, and referencing. I've worked a lot between Maya and Zbrush, textured in Mudbox and pushing the illustration details in photoshop. I did the matte paint in Photoshop too.
