Here is how one of the first draft renders looked like after I put Ebola into the environment, set up the materials and added lights.
– Ambient Occlusion
– RGB pass
I decided that it is necessary to try to express the nature of the HIV not only in colour or render, but also in the form.
I started drawing, began searching the spirit of HIV on the paper.
Here are the stages of work on the model. Briefly, but I hope the way will be clear.
Body object and CellPACK elements detailed and textured in ZBrush 4, using decimation master to optimize the mesh and UV master for unwarping.
