Character modelling/pose and the armour

As I'm a lazy guy, I simply use a posermodel with the pose that I like best, and import it into 3dsMax. (I don`t own CharacterStudio or anything else like that.)

Now, I have a good reference for scaling and adjusting the amour.

Then I start to model the armour bit by bit. I do this with polymeshmodelling. So, I build a lowpoly mesh and look carefully for the right mesh resolution. This is important for the celtic decoration, that will follow later. I add extra polys where I want to have some decoration on the armour. I give these polys another material ID so that I can easily select them later on.

That was amazing! When I first saw the pic, I thought it was a digital painting. Such awesome detail~! Gotta love high poly sculpts.
