ZBSee member Undoz goes the distance with this recent addition to the Top Row. The concept for the piece comes from Börkur Eiríksson and Kári Gunnarsson. This Valkyrie character was created for the Eve Prophecy Cinematic Trailer. The sculpting portion of the work was done inside ZBrush and displacement maps were generated by way of the Multi-Map Exporter. Undoz incoporporated ZRemesher to handle some of the re-topology. Check out more cosmic travelers inside his user gallery.
