This is my first attempt to model a character. I got convinced by a friend to learn Softimage XSI, so I used this project as a gym. I took me a very long time, more than one year, to model, delete, remodel again and again this character.
Along with the new software tools, I had to learn human anatomy and mesh topology since I didn’t had any school or other experience experience.
And after modelling, I  had to learn lighting and composition as well. Another whole new world!
When I was about to add this project to the gallery, I couldn’t help playing with the passes in Photoshop for a couple of hours, and I improved the lighting a bit.
