With her fantastic hair, we looked at shape and form of shorter hair styles, particularly around the ear to get the flow of the hair right. The t-shirt has a lovely soft texture- look closely and you'll even see that slight fluffiness you get with cotton.
One of the challenges was bringing a sense of depth and mass where the mechanical anatomy can be seen. A nice solve was to use a glass panel effect with a reflection pass and to add depth of field on some of the mechanical parts. This prevented the cut away from the t-shirt feeling too flat and gave the humanoids body a more defined outer structure that felt more fluid in form.
We've been spending R&D time on customised rigs in the studio, to really bring out expression and nuances. This piece was a great opportunity to put all that R&D into practice, especially in her face. We do love those dimples too...hope you like it!
