Spent a few nights this week kicking out this material/model study of Martian Soil & Rocks. Started by sculpting the rock in Zbrush, then composed this little scene with it in Marmoset by digging up an old practice Substance Designer material that I ended up finalizing and tweaking to match for this rock. Went for flat-ish shale-looking rock. Was a fun little exercise, haven't done personal work at home in forever!
Wanted to push colors and wetness in my version, even though not quite dry and dusty as Mars. Mars reference was more of the launching point/inspiration, didn't want to mimic it 100%.
