I really love the Blacksad series and wanted to make some fan art of one of my favorite scenes from the books.

At first my plan was to just make a detailed sculpt of him and make a clay render but decided to take it a bit further after realizing he really needs hair and colors.

The main shot is based on a frame where he shoots a frog named Ivo Statoc (one of the city's most powerful businessmen) in the head after a heated debate.
For who's interested in the scenario there's some screenshots of the frame to be found online:

Reference1 & Reference2

I used Octane to render the shot and Ornatrix to create the hair.

Hope you like it !

This project was made with 3dsmax, Zbrush, Marvelous Designer, Photoshop, Ornatrix and Octane
