ANATOMIC DRAWING + POLYGONAL MODELLING

GAME CHARACTER IMPERSONATION
IMPERSONATION OF G-MAN IN "HALF-LIFE 2"
James Van Dyk utilizes Autodesk Maya to build up digital head basic topology of himself. Then he sends the polygonal model into Mudbox for digital sculpting and sculptural texturing. James further sends the sculpted model with high-res texture back to Maya for rigging and animation. He takes reference from the famous online game "Half-Life 2" and impersonates the monologue of G-Man.
