Pit Stop:

Spoopy Hands

3D Character models for Mikail Ekiz's Stop Motion film, "Pit Stop." I took direct reference from Mikail's concept art, while also looking at different types of real hands.

Breakdown

Art Direction

Mikail already had all of his concept art and an animatic when he asked me if I'd like to model these guys. His drawings and sense of color and design have always been very strong and they really helped to inform the look development for his film. 

Concept By: Mikail Ekiz

Sculpting and Retopology

Due to the organic nature of the hands, I decided sculpting them in ZBrush would be the best course of action. Once the sculpts were approved I moved on to TopoGun for the re-topology.
