Thanks to everyone for all the great feedback, I still hope to improve my skills.

I just use Modo for modeling and I think it's top at it, but seeing your work gives me some doubts... I am pretty curious....

B-Max, At the time I created Axe, I had only been using Modo for UV unwrapping, texture clean-up and detailing as I was still learning the software. However I have found Modo's modeling tools to be far better than Maya so have have recently been using Modo for most of my 3d current 3D work. I still use Maya for real-time shader set-up, rigging and animation.

Can i ask you how you generate the final image? Is pre-rendering? generated in sofware or some engine?



PaLantir The image is a software render done in Modo. Here is a shot of the character in-game :

Superb, reminds me a bit of the 2000Ad character Slaine, that is quite a cod piece. Why did you call him the Axe battler when he's carrying a claymore?

Yes, the Art Director on Golden Axe, had Slane in mind when I created it :-). The name is the name of the character in the original Sega Golden Axe game, and he had a sword at that time, as well.

Beautiful work. Agreed on the Slaine similarity - a benchmark for fantasy warriors everywhere!
