What I did in this project?
1- WIND TUNNEL:
Helped develop the wind tunnel visuals. After that, I made the 3D model.
Guto Sposito (VZ's Senior 3D Modeler) modified it and made it's textures to fit the director's view (Nando Cohen).
2- NISSAN METAL HERO:
This one is a long story.
We were presented by a concept art by Rodrigo Idalino. After that, this model needed 3 artists to be finished in a record time of almost two weeks..
Guto Sposito made a super low resolution proxy for us to work in the same scale.
Then, I began to work in the neck and torso models. I had to create his back entirely because it was't visible in the concept art. Those parts needed to fit very well because it would assemble on the actor's filmed body.
Sposito would focus on the helmet, that needed special attention and care. Bruno Saber (also a VZ's senior 3D modeler) modeled the arms and hands.
After that, I jumped to the pelvis, legs and boots. I had to create a lot of those parts too, because they had to work well when animated. My idea here was to make functional joints and parts instead of deformable armor (that would look very fake). As soon those parts were finished, I had to modify some details of the arms, like the jointing parts and lava tubes.
When the model was completely finished, I made all the models textures using Substance Painter, which helped me to save a lot of time. Later, Marinho Silva (Light TD) modified the shoulders textures and added the logo bump in the chest's center piece.
In part 2, a better focus on the armor model.
