I think you ought to know I'm feeling very depressed...

Just a little WIP render from my current CGTalk hardcore modelling challenge entry. I’m doing Marvin and Arthur from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (movie).

Fantastic work!….

May i ask, was that created in blender?…
being an artist myself, i am using this software for much of my own work, a wonderful program to use!.

Still have much to learn as always with art, an ever learning curve!….

You have done a wonderful job of creating marvin, a fantastic movie too!.

Look forward to seeing more from you in the future!.

The head was made entirely in blender. For the body I made some quick basemeshes for each part in blender and then sculpted them in zbrush, then took them back in to blender and retopo-ed them to get nice smooth topology.

Rendered in zbrush with a little post in blender and gimp to do some colour balancing and add the glow to the eyes.
