This is a character I created for a spec movie poster but I wanted to isolate him out for his own full render. I wanted him to be pure emotion and rage. I modeled a base mesh for him in 3ds max and then took him to ZBrush to finsih off the sculpting and texturing. I then imported a medium-resolution mesh back into 3ds max for rendering with VRay. I used normal maps and sss to achieve the look I wanted. I finished off the final piece in Photoshop to enhance the lighting, add particles, DOF, some drool, and hair effects.

Hey Oniram,that's a fair question. I figured people were wondering about that. Truth be told, I was not happy with the final result of that Battling the Giants image. The client gave me specific compositional direction and I tried to make the best of it. So afterward, I decided I'd just do some hero shots of the two characters I liked the best and enjoyed working on. I thought I could get the angles I wanted better and isolate out their characters in a more impressive way. So now, I'm officially done with this effort. The Battling the Giants image was for the client specifically (for no pay) and the other two hero shots were just for portfolio purposes. Hope that makes sense! :)

i dont understand, the pieces youve posted up have all been from the same thing. Screaming GiantBattling the GiantsDavid: Herothey've all been one from the same.. why not just post them together? (dont get me wrong, your work is amazing, but im just wondering how you're going about working on these pieces.. if u just do little by little, or its a constant project?)

When we were viewing this one for the main 3dtotal gallery, someone said he looks a bit like he's made of chocolate, Rich said "I'd eat him" and someone else muttered "not in a gay way I hope" then we all laughed...ah the fun we have.......Still he got into the main gallery too :)cheersTom

thanks guys for the comments! glad you like the site frostsnake. :)The skirt has bugged me too and I even thought about adding some fray to the bottom. I had in mind this thick leathery skin skirt so it was a bit of a challenge. Perhaps I should have gone with more of a cloth skirt - would have been more dynamic. His skin I wanted to look more weather worn and tough, not all crazy soft and sss'd up. But I do understand the comments about how hard it looks. Working on that whole tactile skin thing - I used vray to light this guy and the sss in vray (imo) is a lot harder to get right than the mental ray that I've used before. All this being said, I'm probably not going back and fixing anything at this point cause I'm working on another sculpt that I really want to finish. I had several learning moments in this piece so I'm gonna apply em to future works.

The chest scars and stomach area make him look too hard instead of looking like skin. Also the leather skirt needs some spec as it's looking very flat at the moment.Other than those crits its a nice, well executed, piece; like the exaggerated proportions.
