Ultimate Captain America

First- great model. But why is it a re-coloration of Ultimate Captain America by Bryan Hitch? Its not, as suggested before, sort of influenced by a bunch of designs- but a change in the coloration of a single design:



Okay- so I'm an ultimate nerd for even pointing it out- but just wondering what the story is? Was this model originally created for an Ultimate Cap project? Great work either way.

Um, I think it's a coincidence? The only thing similar is the camera angle and the belt. And I think the comment you are referring to was what the poster saw in the image, which was his opinion, as this is also yours.

Great job!

OMG!! 6 days to complete? That's so fast. Did you have a pre existing figure model or are you just super fast? This is incredible work. I gotta learn z brush. What type of renderer did you use in max?

Thanks for all the comments guys. I agree with the crits about the pelvis/legs. i guess that is a casualty of the short deadline. Pixologic wanted a generic superhero that used typical superhero traits, which was good, since the deadline didn't permit me time for concepting. I started with a base male body I had, and spent the next 6 days sculpting, texturing, posing and rendering. I created all the textures and normal maps in zbrush, and then imported him into max to render in mental ray. the lighting rig is just a simple 3 point set up with a skylight. here is the pose that was used for the main banner:

We can all agree that this is a great image and executed amazingly- but as for costume design- I thought there might be a reason for the similarity- an homage maybe? Not limited to the belt, I also see the same chest star, shoulder star, glove, mask design, chain mail, even the way the chain mail splits into cloth on the chest ... basically the same costume with different colors. Not saying its a bad model, or wrong to use the design, just wondering if there was a story behind the use of design?:

That's an influence from Stretch Armstrong!
