I needed a character for a summer cottage scene. About a hundred pixels tall. Nothing too fancy.
At some point, the priorities may have shifted.
I used Fuse to get a base mesh. Yeah, I know. I render out industrial CAD models for a living, so sculpting an anatomically correct human from a bean in Mudbox of all tools isn't in the heart of my comfort zone just yet.
That being said, a lot of sculpting and painting is involved. I've also learned to hate garment maker and hair & fur, but not enough to justify the price tag of their handsome plugin counterparts.
