Hi there people! I would like to share with you the workflow behind the creation of one of my characters - a redesigned version of Lobo.

When I decided to create a character from a well-known DC Universe - Lobo - the first thing that I realized was that my character was going to be a bit different from the original. My main goal was to create an older version of this guy, so I thought that if I was going to shift his age, why not change his whole look as well (Fig.01)?

Concept

I decided to shift his overall look a bit and make my own version of the classic one. Some kind of fusion between moody-biker-rasta-pirate-sci-fi-badass!

Once I'd calmed down, I decided to change the concept to something less vivid...more human, with the essence of humor (Fig.02).

Modeling

After I had decided on a concept, I went to Maya and modeled a base for the body. Then, in ZBrush, I did some basic sculpting to define the main shape for the "organic" part, after which I exported the result into Maya where I continued by creating some clothes and adding accessories (Fig.03).

When I was working on the accessories I decided not to overwhelm him with stuff and also make his weapons as separate elements.

At the time I was being influenced by Rage (an upcoming game from Id Software), which inspired me to use local plastic shapes in contrast with small pieces, thin lines and hard edges (Fig.04 - 06).
