Cold as Lava by Super-Her0 Cold as Lava by Super-Her0
This work was created for the cover art of 3D Artist magazine issue 61. Tigers are one of my most favorite animals, I almost always get captivated by their magnificence. This was a great opportunity for me to try depicting their grandeur.

I used Maya for scene setup, ZBrush for sculpting and Fibermesh, Shave and a Haircut, Mari, Arnold and Photoshop.

how dare you to set such a high goal for me to never reach... I still can't tell if it really is a photo. I can imagine that the hair arrangement took most of the time. I'd like to have a look into the Maya file to copy the setup XD great work

I too, love tigers, and was initially amazed to find such a photograph. That being said, I see now that this is 3D art, and words can not express how amazing I find this.

Thanks a lot! Yep, why not? Everything in 3D can be animated, but it's just a matter of setting it up in a way to have that capability, i.e. bone, muscle, facial expressions or such setups

So your telling me what you REALLY did was take a photo of a tiger close up put it on a plane and rendered it out and touched up with photoshop...
What I'm really saying is wow haha it doesnt even look like a 3D model/Zbrush/Photoshop piece of work.
Really really awesome work!
