Wedding Cake Topper and Favors

This was one of the most fun projects I've ever done. As a gift to my very dear friends, Michael & Ralph, I created a Wedding Cake topper of them, in a vintage style photograph pose (2017). It started with body scans, then touch up of the digital sculpt in Zbrush. (Additional digital modeling by Rafael Fernandez Jr.)
They were not scanned in the exact suits, so we had to model and design the final look. The heads were sculpted by Tony Reynolds, and touched up by myself, with the aid of Katie Adams (Ralph's best friend since highschool). Paint done by and Jamie Orsillo.

I aslo created wedding favors of Michael & Ralph in a silly pose and mold/cast about 140 pieces to giveaway.
