Software used:

After I was done with the low poly modeling, I used Turbosmooth as a subdivision modifier. I applied a double Turbosmooth to every single part of the armor, but here's the trick: the first one was used with smoothing groups, and the second as usual, just for smoothing the edges (Fig.11).

One of the things that everybody asks me is how I did the hand holes. It may seem difficult, but it's really easy. I wanted to thank Vitaly Bulgarov because I learned a lot from his hard surface DVD, and it was really helpful for creating the hands (Fig.12).

UVs in Max

I used two tools for the UVs: UV Layout and Unwrap for the organic parts (Fig.13 - 14).

Textures in Photoshop and ZBrush

Apart from the head, not many pieces had a specific texture. The only exceptions were some alphas used for blending. Fig.15 shows some of the textures I used and Fig.16 shows them applied.
