Modeled in Qubicle, Animated in Maya, Rendered in Unreal Engine :)
I wish I had maya =,=
Comp is only 32 bit right now (will upgrade to 64 soon)
Nice fan art tho. You make fan art for other games as well or just decided to do it for this one?
Maya offers 3 years educational license, you get all the features of Maya for non-commercial use. You just have to sign up :)
You only get it once, so make sure you're serious about using the educational license when you sign up!
For many of my previous titles that I have worked on, including Starbound, I began by making fan art for the current developers. It gets you to study their current art-style, and at the same time performs as an 'art test'. It is a great and inspiring exercise :)
