The Prince by Art-by-Smitty The Prince by Art-by-Smitty
The Prince

It was a scary idea to me to attempt to make a character from one of my favorite shows of all time, Dragonball Z. Not to mention, I would be doing my own rendition of a character that was created by Akira Toriyama, my favorite artist of all time. The lats thing I would want to do is destroy one of his amazing designs. I hope that this rendering embodies all that Vegeta is...

I hope my rendition in 3D reflects his notorious arrogant pride and short lived brash attitude. His evil tempered heart, molten and smoking with rage.

Programs used:
ZBrush (Sculpting and rendering with BPR.)
3dsMax (Blocking out geometry.)
Photoshop (Comping render passes from ZBrush, and making final adjustments.)
Topogun (Recreating head geometry for sculpting.)
Roadkill (For unwrapping geometry.)
