Skin textures created in Mudbox. I've used texturing xyz maps for the displacement information and a combination of cross polarized textures and hand painting for the base color.

The moment I saw a Mursi warrior with boar tusks hanging off his head and an AK-47 in his hands I fell in love with their look, so I decided to create a 3D character based on this tribe.

My main goal was to create a realistic character as well as practicing organic and hard surface modeling, texturing, and shading. I had a limited time to create the character (10 weeks) so I decided to focus on the upper part of the body and I created a portrait.
