Im a big fan of avatar. Inspired by the character in avatar and from another inspiration of my friend who made the fan art too, i decided to make this. started with a base mesh in maya and then sculpted it in zbrush and even added textures using polypaint.
Rendered out the different textures and had setup the shot with three point lighting in maya and rendered out with mental ray with three point light setup. Tried a bit of subsurface.
