The Kid: IFCC 2018

I made this for the TGW "I am the Kid" challenge. 
The idea was to redesign the IFCC mascot originally designed by Marko Prpic Zets

I had a lot of fun with this and used it as an opportunity to learn Substance painter. 
For the smoke I exported the render scene from keyshot as an FBX and took it into 3ds max so that I could simulate and render the smoke using Phoenix FD and Vray. Then I just comped the 2 renders together in photoshop.
