This is a 3d anatomy study with high attention to detail. The character was sculpted in ZBrush, rigged in 3ds Max and final images were rendered with Sub Surface Scattering shader in Mental Ray. The male character was modeled in a real-world scale with the golden ratio for the ideal human proportions. The male has an anatomically correct athletic body and a very detailed topology. The height of the character is 180 cm and the eyeball size is approximately 2,5 cm. The mesh contains only quads and comes with high detailed realistic textures (8192 x 8192). Whilst making this character’s study I learned a lot of things about human anatomy and also I use this body as my “base body” for my other characters. From this geometry, I can easily make many different kinds of bodies.
Close-up of the eyes, I put this eyeball to the character.

For ideal proportions, the human character was modeled with a golden ratio based on the Vitruvian Man according to Leonardo da Vinci.

The base mesh contains only quads and the model has clean edge loops based geometry. It contains 30 300 polygons (triangles). You can see wireframe images on subdivision level 1:
The character was rigged with Biped with extra twist bones and also I used the Skin Morph modifier for better deformation.
The character has complex high detailed eyes (eyeball + iris, cornea, pupil, wet part). These eyes bring life to the model. The eyes have also LookAt Constraint as a rotation controller to manage the movement of eyes. I used WSM Hair and Fur modifiers for eyelashes and eyebrows.
For extreme details, the head and body have separate SSS textures set (color map, backscatter map, subdermal map, epidermal map, specular map, glossiness map, normal map, displacement map). For the character, I made a proper UV Layout and I painted the realistic high-resolution textures from photo references in Photoshop.
