Hi.
Last time, i told you i was about to make a new pict with this character. So this is it.
i wanted to play more with textures in photoshop and painter, so this is what i've done. A more basic rendering in Maya, 3 lights, to get the shape, and...

hope you'll like it. This one is closer to my other works compared to the previous (http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?threadid=96570) assassin

wow :eek:

dude that is... strange but VERY good work. I keep staring at it.. I love what you did with the colours (left/right).

I didn't like your previous picture that much though it was good, but these colours and pose are way better.

excellent

a thing of beauty
do you have a highres to place on my background ?

Your textures are fantastic. I would love to hear more about what methods you used in post production to create those patterns and textures. Are you applying digital photos in various blending modes over your render, or is it a combination of that, PS patterns and brushes?

Great stuff. Please keep us informed on your future works.

There is a beautiful power in the pose and the composition.
The only thing I don't quite enjoy is the severe kinking of the strips of cloth. This may be intentional, but it seems a little too creased.

Very spectacular indeed!:D

a great piece of art my friend, after a long time i have seen cg and art fused, the pose is very electric, the dynamism is enforced by the the white rays falling on the figure and the strands flowing around him. top class..i am going to check out your website. ..and is it possible to post a larger vesion, so i can use as a desktop. as a inspirational guide, every time i log in to my PC.

Thanks everybody
i changed the initial pict of my thread for a larger version.
Anyway, we're still far from the original, which is 5800px hi. Designed for poster print. Might be on Zazzle one day...
Thanks again fellas.

really nice balance between 3D and 2D... looks like you know way much better where to put your 2D effects and when to stop adding things ;) as a result, your work gets lots of power, density and flavor.. really nice work, keep it up!

I loved that character when you first posted it, and this tops that :D Can't really say anything but "GIVE ME A POSTER!"

It's just too cool for words :D

Wow. Very nice man. I have to agree about the cloth strips though ....they seem to turn and twist unaturally, but other than that great piece.

omg. plugged yet?

I agree with what's said about the chin and the eyes (being too far apart) but everything else is cool. I love the style and hair. That hair.

Oww oww.

lovely :applause: very nice art style.. makes me wanna go scratch my eyeballs

this probably goes against what you intend but could you please show the model - right out of maya, I would like to see how/what you've done to push the image to where it is currently

You could do more whit the upper part of the image in terms of colouring. At the bottom with all the white going on and the colours surrounding that area is just awesome.
And as others have mensioned, your mix of 3d and 2d is top notch.
Overall, love the image, amazing artwork.

When will I be able to do such great artworks? Hopefully soon. This picture is superb. Is there a way to get a poster from it?
Which resolution have the textures and did you work with photoshop and painter after the pic was rendered?

Oh by the way some infos or a tutorial how you modelled and textured this one would be great!

Great job at all.

Hi.
Here is the basic render. As i told you, this one is really poor and just allow me to have fun on post process but you already know that don't you
http://www.e338.com/forums/RoughRender.jpg
Now, few answers.
Artician: yeah, it's a mix up beetween homemade textures and patterns, + a bunch of layers, photos, scratches, with a graphic tab. Jumping from photoshop to painter, then to photoshop again.
Some details are manually added, same for the lights, etc...

Erilaz, and the other persons who think the strips of cloth are too creased. Well... what can i say? Not sure... The pose is kinda weird. halfway beetween the "Kick in the head" and the "bloking". In both cases, his left leg is mooving very fast, so i think it's logical the strips goes that way. The sharp creases are also logical i think. Those strips were folded before he bought'em ;)

Asphyxie: I'm not sure i have to do anything else with the top of the pict due to the hi amount of details in the whole piece. I had to contrast with the bottom. And there are also details that we can't see in the post. here's a exemple.
http://www.e338.com/forums/detail_fd.jpg

Thanks to you people. I'm gonna take a week to work on something new (a sign? once upon a time in the...). I'll show you asap.
see Ya

but seriously , i love the graphic designy feel you have. and whats more , i love the design of the character and his pose. he kinda reminds me of my avatar:thumbsup:

ok. well...
Here you are.
you'll find this assassin on Zazzle. www.zazzle.com.
category: fantasy
soon, it'll work with keyword: e338, time for zazzle to update its database i guess.

I didn't upload it in the maximum resolution, because i'll print limited series for local galleries; but the definition is good enough for classical print (22.5" x 35").

I'm really glad you ask for it, so, once again:

I'm wondering how much editing did you do to the models texture post-render?

It looks like a painting!

I really like the style of your character. Is it your own style or do you draw your inspiration from another artist?

Above the hair in the top left theres 2 five fingered limbs and part of the body, and in front of the left hand of the assassin theres a tail!

Those are all the obvious ones, My feeble human eyes are unable to extract any further dragon details. Doom.

Wickedly cool style. Compositionally it's good except for the white paint scrapes on the bottom. They take away the focal point and give a bottom heavy display. try covering that spot up or flipping the picture upside down to see what i mean.
I really respect your ability to be be unconventional:D
