Character : Frost Giant



Hi,

Some of you might remember that character I had started sometime last summer. It was modeled after a painting from Paul Bonner. The WIP thread from back then seems to have fallen into the oblivion of a server crash. Rats !
Anyways, here's the final piece. It was started in Max4 and finished in 5, rendered in Brazil. Nothing too special about modeling and lighting, but for those interested there are a few WIP pics along with wireframes and concept design on my website here.
I also made a shameless self-promoting wallpaper that you can get here .
Hope you all like it.

AWSOME! no crits here!!! well maybe two.... The skulls really stick out because they look like they are lit differently. Plus it would be nice to maybe see a light snow fall over the top of it all. But awsome stuff

Waiting for the front page plug.....

Absolutely Superb

I remember seeing this WIP last year...the untextured version was impressive enough, but this is just awesome.

Great attention to detail in the skin, the veins in his biceps, those cloth "bracers' on his forearms......

Where's the steam coming from tho? Him?

Always thought a frost giant would sorta have a low body temp to match his surroundings

sweet *right click save as*
added to my collection of your previous wips

i really like his skin

the only thing is the back lighting on the skulls, looks a little odd to me, but other than that, perfect

This is definitely AMAZING....I would love to see him with a different darker and more contrast lighting also...
