The Flash Noir, Christopher Brändström (3D)

Title: The Flash Noir
Name: Christopher Brändström
Country: Sweden
Software: Maya, mental ray, Mudbox, Photoshop, ZBrush

So, I finally managed to finish this piece. Started working on it almost 2 years ago but didn't have time to finish it back then.
This is my take on a 40s version of The Flash. Didn't want to overdo it with very sci-fi gadgets, nano-fabrics or general high-tech neon-glowy-stuff. Wanted it to feel like a first trial run of the suit before it became the red/yellow spandex suit it is today.
Hope you like it!

Here's a VERY highres version of the image which I think you'll appreciate more: B.jpg

Fantastic cloth. Brillant used look of the leather.
The work was really worth it.
I also like the pose.

Cool work, Chris!

Being not familiar with the depicted hero, i can only say that he looks like a smart Swedish sportsman with unique earflaps. Outstanding styling and excellent execution!

great character, like the textures alot, cloth is great. the only crit i have is the mouth area, it could get more detail/definition.

Kzin: Thanks for the feedback. He's got a light fairly close to the face which is the cause of that.

DanHibiki: Thank you!

CHRiTTeR: Thanks! I was putting my focus and time on the character but yes, as an action image it's more appealing with a proper environment.
