Italy,  Florence Accademia Nemo NT (Firence),  Visual FX,  June 01, 2014
My name is Lorenzo Melizza, I'm a passionate 3d modeler. Three years ago i started my adventure in the CG world, and by now, I'm totally addicted to it.
I'm always trying new thing, new way to reach and beat my limit. On June 2014 I graduated in the Visual FX class of Nemo Academy of Florence.
During my last year I study to build a stronger portfolio and, in the meantime I coworked on some indie project.

In this video I show the texture and shading of this drow ranger inside Marmoset Toolbag 2.0. This project started a couple of week ago during a game of D&D.
In this project I used Autodesk Maya for the low poly mesh, Marvelous Designer for clothing, Zbrush to sculpt the anatomy and all the details on clothes and accessories, Xnormal to bake the base maps and Photoshop to paint them.

Total polycount: 19922 (39600 triangles)
Maps count: 34 x 2K - 7 x 1K
Rendered in Marmoset Toolbag
