Eric Testroete worked as a 3d, mainly character artist in the Vancouver game industry for 9 years. In the last three years he focused on world art.
Obviously it was his former job that inspired him for this three dimensional self portrait which he dedicated this year’s Halloween.
“The head was modeled in 3ds Max based off of photos I had Jen take. The final triangle count was 370
“The texture was done with Mudbox 2010 and Photoshop CS3. The projection features work great to get a texture down quickly. After that I used the new export screen to PSD feature to clean up the texture and remove shadows.”
