You art is gorgeous, I love all the details you put into making your 3D models.
I was wondering, how do you make your models low-poly after sculpting them? I have my ways, but I'd like to figure out how a professional does it.
As someone who's just getting started in the Game Industry (currently a Student Game Art), could you please give me some tips and tricks and tell me about your experience? :)

After your Hipoly is done you need to do a repotology in order to create a low poly. For that you can use retopo tools in Zbrush (which is pretty funky and most people dont like using it) or you can use 3d coat, Topogun or Maya-3dMax for retopo. I find 3d coat is the best for this purpose because Im using this program for texture painting as well.

Hey! I love your work on the Zarya Thunderguard skin, do you think there'll be a chance we ever see it in Overwatch??
