The last knight, Carsten Holtmann (3D)



Title: The last knight
Name: Carsten Holtmann
Country: Germany
Software: 3ds max, Brazil r/s, Photoshop, ZBrush

I used Zbrush for the Head (modeling and texturing) The amor is simple polymodeling done in 3dmax. I used Brazil for rendering and Photoshop for some color adjustments. I´m doing character´s just for fun and to improve my skills.
I hope you´ll like it and critique is always welcome!

somehow, he looks a little like Sean Connery...

Congratulations, great char! for armor ornaments: did you use also ZBrush or regular bump mapping?

Cheers

Thank you for your nice comments :-) In fact i used some pics of Sean Connery as a reference for the face. But i lost some likeness as i added the beard and made him bald.
For the Armor i used simple bump mapping.

Thumbs up

Most impressive! 5* image for certain.

Could You tell something about the skin shader You've produced for this work? - if that's no secret
I'd be very thankfull for some technical specification.

Cheers!

Beautiful work! 5*! He really somehow looks like sean connery! Maybe there's a liltle bit too much light on the bald patch.
