So i've been toiling away on a new project, and for the marketing material i wanted something a bit more ... well, not sci fi. I wanted some kind of gaelic/celtic warrior girl, so i went to my go-to girl Ceridwen (which you should totally get btw). The problem is, i wanted incredibly high detail skin, and specific makeup but she just didn't have the look i was going for. So! I made a fresh character from scratch using G3F as a base. 8k hand-painted maps, scratch-made morphs and even a neat head band. I couldn't even find the hair i wanted so i had to re-mesh an old hair set so it fit around the band and gathered around the left shoulder. All in all it was 14 hours work for one promotional plate
Regrets - I should have made the SSS map more dense around the ears. I should have used subD on the hair (forgot). I should have painted heavier AO effects around the brass buttons on her headband. I should have spent longer on her makeup.
Hindsight is 20/20 though. Thank you for listening to my rant and i hope you like my little Frankenstein! It's 4k but fairly cropped so you might have to expand to see her properly.
