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.
Reindeer country
Some 3ds Max proxy and procedural material practice work that turned into a massive negative displacement battle due to the animal tracks involved.
The peeking twin peaks of the nearby hill Teerivaara as seen from the top of Iso-Syöte, the southernmost hill in Finland to (kind of) meet the local definition of a mountain.

Iso-Syöte, Pudasjärvi, Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland.

Diriumm and I finally finished our time lapse film from the icy shores of the Barents and Norwegian seas. Upping the ante for the next one will probably be done with aerial footage, dolly shots and maybe even an editing phase that won't last years.

You are highly under-rated here on DA. I feel like I've found a hidden gem. :)

Marketing. Difficult. :P
Well, the constant linear growth in followers is a good motivator.

Nonnih, tein pienen lisäyksen siihen kuvaan Dawn ja nyt se ois nähtävillä mun galleriassa. Oisit epäilemättä voinut tehdä siihen hienommatkin kuut itse, päätellen upeasta 3d-osaamisesta, mikä pistää silmään sun galleriasta, mutta sainpahan kerrankin tilaisuuden kokeilla saavuttaa jonkinlaisen fotorealismin planeettoja piirrellessäni :).
