Star Citizen - Tagaca
Tagaca is one of the characters in the single player story module of Star Citizen. He is basically a big intimidating brute character.
This character was a collaboration with a bunch of artists at CIG. Omar Aweidah made his clothe and did the initial head polish pass. Jeremiah Lee hand drew and scanned the tattoos that I used on his arm. Claudio Clemente did the initial assembly and polish pass.
I was tasked with the final polish for this character. I felt that the problem with Tagaca was that he didn't look good when we put the scanned head on a scaled up version of the base male body. He didn't feel like a unified character with strongman proportions. So what I did was re-sculpt the upper body, neck and arms. I then re-textured the arms with faded tattoos and scars. Finally, I did another polish pass on the head texture and some slight tweaks to the hair.
This character was done in winter 2017. Tools used were the usual: max, maya, zbrush, and mari.
