Stone Weaver 3D

3D art of Taliyah, the Stoneweaver, a character design by Lin Chang. https://www.artstation.com/artwork/1mN3G

With GDC this month, I wanted to fast-track this piece, so I skipped the usual retopo stage and opted for a simple decimated model. This also worked well with such a dynamic static pose, as opposed to something I’d want to animate and thus need good topo.
