“I like ex­per­i­ment­ing in Zbrush,” says con­cept artist and comic book colourist Neeraj Menon. “Marvelous de­signer is some­thing new I’m play­ing with. I do a lot of dig­i­tal paint­ing so both soft­ware come in handy for ini­tial ideas.”

“Al­though the ma­jor­ity of my time was taken up sculpt­ing the un­der­ly­ing model, I think the most sig­nif­i­cant part was cre­at­ing the cloth in Marvel­lous De­signer,” he ex­plains. “The ac­tual de­sign is sim­ple, it's just a sheet of cloth. The real chal­lenge was to lay it just right, hid­ing cer­tain parts and show­ing oth­ers.”

De­spite be­ing a chal­lenge at times, Neeraj main­tains that the ex­pe­ri­ence was an en­joy­able one. He con­cludes: “The most fun part came dur­ing the ma­te­ri­als and ren­der­ing phase. Once the translu­cency of the cloth was ap­plied, what I had seen in my mind re­ally be­came a re­al­ity. Ev­ery­thing fell into place.”
