Greetings to the organizers and participants of the competition!

My name is Roman Kogay, I am an artist and 3D modeler from Uzbekistan.

For the last 2 months I have been busy with work, but periodically I studied the possibilities of CC and methods (pipeline). I guess it's time to try creating my character. Since there is almost no time left,this will be a 2-day sprint to speed up my idea Hehe

I am inspired by the progress of technology in our time.

But did robots exist two or three centuries ago?..

Of course, legends about living humanoid statues circulated in ancientGreece. And in the 18-19th centuries, these were mechanical devices, clockwork dolls. Automatons.

Theywere created for the entertainment of the public. Automatons danced, playedmusical instruments, and wrote with a pen to the amusement of ordinary peopleand high society.

My character is an automaton. He was created to perform at social events, entertaining high society ladies and gentlemen. One of hundreds of thousands like him. He became a silent witness to many secrets andintrigues.

But what if the mechanical body of an automaton has a mind and a heartbeats?.. If its memory of the past can be extracted in the future? Fix a broken Victorian doll and give it new life behind the glass of the laboratory. How will he feel in his new life?

This character is deeply psychological, I will try to convey the inner pain of a creature whose purpose is to entertain the audience in the past and become an object of experiments in the future.

I will post here the process of working on this character.

Also you can visit me on ArtStation https://www.artstation.com/ren_mark

Let's start!Smile

 

P.S. Guys, sorry for my English. This is not my native language

WIP #1
Automaton

In order to understand what my character would look like, I decided to draw concept art.

WIP #2
Automaton

Starting  with the CC base - Caleb, I edited the general proportions of the body. Then, I chose a photo of actor Ben Kingsley as the main reference for the character's head. With the settings in the СС, I corrected the anatomy: the shape of the skull, cheekbones, jaw, eyebrows. Changed nose, mouth and eyes.Used sculpting in CC (great to have it!). Selected and corrected textures for the future model.

WIP#3
Automaton
I imported  the CC model into Blender, set the Shape keys and continued sculpting the  character's face using the Elastic Deform, Clay Strips, Smooth, Inflate, etc.brushes. I didn`t want to create real Ben Kingsley, so I continued adjusting the character's head to get a unique one automaton. Then I made a note on how my character's body would look. To  create a mechanical arm and legs, I used several parts from the kitbash of OlegUshenok, sculpted and transformed them into a metal skeleton of the character. I made wooden overhead plates that mimic the automaton`s muscles. I used the Multires modifier and divided into several steps. Next I am going to use Marvelous Designer to create clothes for my character)https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/5d55744a-f797-498b-b247-a507.pnghttps://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/63a1b0dd-16ac-4acd-a581-5229.pnghttps://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/e34d58ac-11fe-47ac-9ab7-9312.pnghttps://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/164a9e8d-3f97-4815-b164-3ab2.pnghttps://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/3efdc5aa-ae5e-4ffa-bd6c-d839.pnghttps://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/dd122867-73f8-4c4f-9206-cac2.pnghttps://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/a0d2fae3-a19a-4af3-bd59-6c25.png

WIP#4
Automaton

The character has 3 main details of clothing: 1-pants; 2-vest; 3-tailcoat. To work with Marvelous Designer, I imported the character model with only the main body parts. I created a pattern for each garment. During the simulation, I fixed the fabric at key points, since it was necessary to obtain reliable folds from the effect of the fabric “nailed down” to the body mesh.

In Blender I made a neckerchief (tie) and a top hat. This way I got a dressed character,almost ready for texturing in Substance Painter.

WIP#5
Automaton
Before importing the model into Substance Painter, I retopologized the main details in Blender and prepared the UVs for baking. In Substance Painter, I selected basic materials such as textiles, metal, leather and dust, dirt and patina effects.
This way I created the character textures and applied them in Blender.
Unfortunately, I didn't have time left to put my character in the pose I would like to see him in in the final render. And right now my character is being rendered the way I managed to make it)
P.S. I could not use my corporate Substance account to enter the competition because this account belongs to the company I work for. I used the personal trial version for a long time and now I want to say  thank you so much guys at Adobe for the personal license bonus provided!
P.P.S. 
I think I'm late. I will not have time to make the final render. Thank you guys at Reallusion for this great event! Congratulations on your 20th birthday!)))
