The Last of Us fan art: "Joel"

JOEL FAN ART ("the last of us")

since i contributed a 2D image for that "itsartmag" contest, i thought it's a good chance to get better in 3D for this one: a 3D sculpt of joel (if you don't know him, you should play more video games!). it is my second ZBrush bust ever, so this one was really time consuming for me. i did one other bust before, and two or three models for a mod, but i am really new to 3D and learn a lot while doing this one. a lot of trial and error, going back and forth etc..

the first one is called "endure and survive" and the second one "you'd just come after her". added a black and white version too, suits the original artworks more. ;)

sculpted from a sphere, polypainted textures, all wrinkles and dermal-details are hand-drawn inside ZBrush too.
main hair, eyelashes, beard and eyebrows are fibermeshes (first time usage).
rendered it in ZBrush (since ZBrush is the only 3D software i own), composed the passes in photoshop. hope you like.
