Rainbow Scarab Beetle

Some test renders of my Rainbow Scarab beetle, sculpted in ZBrush and rendered in octane for Maya. Textures created in Substance. I still need to rig and add hair. My goal is to be as accurate as possible with this model. The species is Phanaeus vindex. It is a colorful dung beetle that is super cute in spite of the fact that it really enjoys poop. I have recorded an entire series of videos that is available on YouTube. Check out the playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfnchxTqMUjlC_eFjmlRwh97AKtZ3uKVK
