Here is a turntable of my model of a Norn, inspired by the "Creatures" Artificial Life series.
The Norn was modelled, textured and rendered in ZBrush, including the fur which is made using Fibermesh.
It took me a long time to get the render passes working in ZBrush, I followed a very helpful tutorial on the ZBrush website to learn how to build the AO and shadow shaders from scratch. After many frustrating attempts I finally got something that resembled my original image (on my website), which I used the BPR render passes with.
I have learnt a lot from the experience and hopefully next time it will be a lot easier!
