Being a big fan of Barontieri's work and an avid supporter of Steambot Studios, I thought I'd try and tackle one of their original concepts. This one is of a futuristic racer which I came across via their Steambot book of awesomeness. I hope I did it justice! Done entirely in Zbrush from a basic dynamesh, then retopo'd seperate sections, and detailed. Finally, I textured him over the last couple of days and posed him for the final here... I like to think it's a candid snap of him preparing for an upcoming race, smoking a cigar to relax, all the while maintaining focus as his ship is prepared. Rendering was done using BPR in Zbrush and comped in After Effects. Enjoy!
