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

Jeerawut

Hi. My name is Jeerawut  Boonchuaynampon, I’m 33 years old. I use ZBrush and Maya. I currently work is a teacher in Khon Kaen university but I am interested in becoming a 3D Character Artist and Digital Sculptor. I usually enjoy viewing realistic characters, anime characters, and hard-surface models.

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

Jeerawut

I love Pokemon a lot and one of my favorite characters is Nessa, so I did my personal work: more than 80% of the modeling and texturing process was done in ZBrush, and Arnold was used for rendering, and Image adjustment in Photoshop.

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

Jeerawut

Nessa is the first work of mine to be an anime character. In this work, I want the characters to look cute and sexy. In this work, I was interested to learn how to pose the characters to look beautiful in ZBrush using the expression of materials and light in Arnold.

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

Jeerawut

I use ZBrush for about 80% of my work. For me, ZBrush is a very important program because my main work is as a Digital Sculptor using Maya for rendering. I used Arnold for Maya to render the images more beautiful. In the final part, I will finish with Photoshop to decorate the images.

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

Jeerawut

Having said that, I am not a very talented person. But what made me achieve my job was effort and curiosity, which helped me develop myself. Each day I will practice regularly in order to get better.

Next time I'm interested in working with realistic male characters and I'm looking for a samurai concept. At this time I have made this character.
