Marquesan Islander

Portrait based on a beautiful photograph by Jimmy Nelson of a Marquesan islander in French Polynesia. I was able to complete this piece thanks to the amazing mentorship and guidance of Pete Zoppi (CGMA instructor), Miguel Ortega and Eric Valdes (Gnomon instructors). This was a really fun project where I wanted to focus on human anatomy and texturing/shading. I used Mari for the skin textures, and everything else was done in Substance Painter. I hope you like it!
