Joriel, The Borrower

This character was inspired by the Studio Ghibli film The Secret World of Arrietty where there are tiny humans known as "borrowers". A fair bit of the inspiration also came from the fictional character Nils Karlsson Pyssling by author Astrid Lindgren. The goal of this project was to make a charming colorful character with focus on small props that could serve a different purpose than oroginally intended. The blockout was made in Maya and sculped in ZBrush. Retopologized, rigged and posed in Maya. Baked and textured in Substance painter and rendered in Unreal Engine 4.
