There is a Maya and ZBrush viewport presentation from the Young Man character of the Swing project. This is a great art project for a 3d re-vision of the famous 1767 painting by Jean-Honore Fragonard. Firstly I captured a lot of reference images from the Casanova movie as well references from the 18th century’s aristocrat costumes, wigs, and tricorn hats. I made the sewing pattern of the justacorps jacket, the vest, the pants, the scarf, the ruffles, and the bow in Marvelous Designer, then I animated the character in laying position so finally, I got the base of his costumes with cloth simulation. Then I exported and detailed the clothes in ZBrush. I used NoiseMaker, custom crease brushes, and IMM custom brush for the lace of the coat. I took reference photos from a guy to find the right expression on his face. To make the wig hair, eyebrow and eyelash I used the powerful Maya XGen. You can see more details about the making-of in the Swing Breakdown post. Here is a WIP version of the rendering by Spencer Fitch. Last year was an exhibition about the project by Chris Coy.

To grooming the wig, eyebrow, and eyelash I used the powerful Maya XGen tool, I really like it. With guide curves easy to control the direction of hairs, with expression easy to customize the style and details, with texture maps easy to control the density.
