I always start by creating some rough sketches, to define the moods, colors, and posing for my girl.
Them moving into my favorite 3d software, Modo, I will create a 3D model, she will basically stand in the so called T-pose. Them I will create the needed clothing accordingly to match my sketches
Now onto the posing and making the illustration itself. She is now driving her Vespa, I always try to have the cleanest Mesh possible, it makes things easier for posing and animation. Skinning will run smoothly, I always aim to be clean with every 3D meshes, I am creating.
Finally I have shown you some before and after rendering, using my photobooth illustration.
You can see the various tweaking I am doing to obtain the final result.
I hope you enjoy this Behind the scene, if you want to see more or maybe if you want us to cover some particular details.
