CLAXON - A 80mm Collectible - Sculpt and Export Workflow

I would like to be sharing the Stoutkin model, a character in which I made for a tabletop game, design and interesting details.
This is the workflow I use for customer models, every step of the process I send for an approval, be it in the blocking, detailing and rendering stages, so, let's take a look below! (Directed by Andrew Scott, a project for a Kickstarter.)

if you have doubts about projects, inquirys, feel free to drop me a email.
Some of the brushs I created to make this work are in my store on the artstation (https://www.artstation.com/renanassuncao/store)

CONCEPT:
Well, let's start, this is the artwork that I received through the Director, a fantasy concept, which by the way I found quite visible in questions of nuances, detailing of emblems and seams on the leather.

HEAD:
In particular in this model I choose to create the head as do initial, I make this decision in some of the models, when it comes to a mesh of hair or beard more specific. and saved in a ztl file, just when the body is blocked.

ACESSORIES:
Particularly choose always to sculpt T pose, because of the practicality of creating the accessories. The first phase of seams and textures is applied, according to the 80mm scale to be visible on the print.
