The Flash TV - Grodd
Grodd is cg gorilla character that was originally made by the Encore VFX team from season 1. This latest Grodd is an improved version that I polished for season 2 episode 7.
My polish to this version was:
- rebuild and groom the fur from scratch
- improve textures by adding more color and scratch detail to the face and chest
- update and improve the body shaders
- re-sculpt areas like the hands and feet
I also sculpted another version of Grodd's face that was more aggressive and more detailed. However, the vfx sup thought it was a bit too different from the season 1 Grodd. We decided to keep the face from season 1 and just polish textures and shaders.
I think all off the polishing took a bit less than three weeks.
This character was done fall/winter 2015. I used these tools at Encore VFX: 3dsmax, Zbrush, Mari and VRay.
