Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you, what do you do, and where are you located?

Hodei

I'm a 25 year old guy who loves videogames and everything related to art and digital design. I studied 3D design because I didn't know what I wanted to do after high school, and I think it was a good decision to get into the world of 3D. Apart from that, I edit videos, make logos and other graphic design, and 3D right now is more like a hobby although I would like to work on it someday.

What was the workflow behind your latest gallery image? Where did the idea come from?

Hodei

As is obvious, the inspiration comes from Riot's recent series which I'm sure everyone knows “Arcane” by now. Their designs motivated me a lot to make a Fanart. The workflow is very simple; I spend the most time sculpting a face that I like using ZBrush. Then I sculpt the rest of the elements, make the textures and so on are spot on, before finalizing the details at the end in the render and post-production.

What challenges did the image present? Did you learn something new?

Hodei

Normally I don't usually do retopology to my models, because my goal is to make a render and that's it, but with this one I decided to do retopology and prepare low poly versions of each part. At the end everything flowed much better.

Do you use any other software, either for work or personal projects?

Hodei

The software I use for 3D is always the same: ZBrush, Maya, Substance Painter, and Arnold Render. Maybe someday I will dare to try something new. Apart from those I also use the whole Adobe pack in my day to day work.

How do you keep your portfolio up-to-date? Any tips?

Hodei

I'm not thinking all the time about having my portfolio updated, I'm simply expanding it when I have inspiration and I feel like doing something that motivates me. I’m motivated by making things I like, hoping to make others feel the same way.

Do you prefer digital or traditional art? And what’s next?

Hodei

I have a lot of artists that I admire, I couldn't choose but I would definitely go for digital. I like to do 3D designs of artists who draw in 2D, and also fanart – so you can expect to see more of these!
