I always wanted to recreate one of my favorite album covers from my youth as a 3D animated scene and Halloween was upon us so I jumped in. Also I wanted to check what I could do with the new Facetools pipeline from Character Creator 4. This is the progress so far;(Iron Maiden, Life After Death, 1985, Cover art by; Derek Riggs)
First setup in CC4, the outfit is a placeholder. (Nobody wants to see a naked Eddie ;))Detailing pass of the head and a first pass on the body in ZBrush.
I really enjoy animating in Cascadeur and it gives me an excelent base for the animation in iClone. So I did a quick sequence and brought the result back to CC4.
A quick preview render from CC4.
This is where the project is at the moment. I am still thinking about where to end up for the final result, Unreal, Unity3D or Blender? I will see it when I get there.
Next on the to do list;
- Creating the outfit and props
- Final textures and materials on Eddie
- Setting up the scene and environment props
I will cover those things in a new post so stay tuned.
Thanks for reading!
