My work was featured in the cover of the Eye For Games Magazine 2013.1. Also, I had the opportunity to give an interview in the pages 29 and 30.
Bob Bump Turntable
I did the UV layout inside the 3DSMax. While this model is symmetrical the texture is not. So, I just shared the same UV space for the arms and legs. Also, I mirrored some parts of UVs 0-1 out of the UV map just in case to help bake textures like Normal map later on.
I have used a Checker map to see the resolution sizes and check if it has any distortion on UVs. I let more resolution for focal points like the head and the cap.
I did the Polypaint in Zbrush for diffuse texture. Also, I did baking textures with Topogun to create Color map, Normal map and AO map. After, I finished the textures with Photoshop.

Body – breakdown texture
I used the Marmoset Toolbag 1, to create materials, test the maps on the model and create dynamic lights in the scene. Here are the texture breakdown and screenshots from Marmoset from my firsts tests.
Rendering the final image
The final images was rendered inside the Marmoset using dynamic lights.
Just to give him a place to stand and bring a better mood to the scene, I created the floor and background in Photoshop.
I want thank you my mentors Fabio Doná, Cezar Brandão and for all those who have supported me in this project.
