One of the best female characters on tv is Michonne from the walking dead. To create this design I firstly started out by modeling and posing her in 3D studio max, then importing the design into zbrush to add the muscles and the detail on the clothes, face and body. For the hair I used the curve tube brush in zbrush to create an effect as close to the charecter from the show.
I used the following brushes in zbrush to create the detail - move brush, claybuildup, and dam standard, for the hair curve tube and then surface to have some noise to it. Katana sword was made in 3d studio max with a reference from the net
