Based on a great concept by Max Grecke : http://maxgrecke.deviantart.com/art/Head-study2-514837357
Done over the course of many lunch breaks. This was mostly an exercise to create stylized hair. I'm pretty happy with the result, except for the eyes, which don't look right when compared side by side with the reference, mine looks "meaner". I had planned to model the whole character at some point, holding a paper cup of all organic, fair trade coffee, but I wanted to move onto something else. Oh well, it's finished, not perfect.
Modeled in Maya, textured in Substance Painter, hair with Yeti, rendered with Arnold
