Qilin, a mystical chimerical creature known in China to arrive during the passing of a sage or ruler, was one of the inspiration for this piece. I wanted to challenge and sharpen my detail dexterity in Zbrush by creating a high detail sculpt that also tells a story, as a sage runs through a battlefield. This project is also a testing region for my lighting and shading skills, to help me understand the process of creating shaders such as gold, jade and oxidize bronze shaders. This project was in part hugely inspired by Digital Artisan Zhelong XU and his piece "Kirin" please check out his portfolio! Character Model provided by Ranran Meng.
