Pixie and Brutus

This was a fan project of the Halloween designs for Pixie and Brutus, two characters from Ben Hed's comic. You can find it on instagram @pet_foolery.

This one was a unique challenge in trying to capture the ice and fire materials in a way that felt grounded in realism and also worked within the constraints of Marmoset's rendering engine. I ended up flipping the normals for the sculpted fire so that I could still texture the mesh, but view the bones within clearly. Had a lot of fun with it!
