Athlete Wrestling with a Python


After a visit to the Tate Britain Museum in London, I fell in love with this statue of Sir Frederic Leighton’s. The masterful composition really left me in awe, so I decided to dedicate this replica to the memory of the sculptor. The digital double was created in ZBrush using various reference images I found on the web and took myself at the museum. After the modelling was done I imported the model into Maya, made a simple Vray shader resembling the original black bronze and set up all the lights to create the mood.
