Introduction

Hi everyone, I'm Won Gyo Lee and I'm going to show how I created my "Prototype A" image. I'll be focusing on how to make a detailed normal map and I hope you find this article interesting.

Concept

This story for this image is in the near future. A huge international company wants to use soldiers to monopolize special resources, so they create a prototype soldier for war. This character is one of those prototype soldiers.

To start, I gathered together some images to use as references (Fig.01).

Modeling

When modeling, I usually start with creating a whole, rough body, and then I decide to divide the hard surface parts and sculpt parts (Fig.02)

The next step is making the hard-surface modeling in 3ds Max and sculpting some parts using ZBrush (Fig.03a - 03b).
