Goblin Library, Marthin Agusta Simny (3D)

Title: Goblin Library
Name: Marthin Agusta Simny
Country: Singapore
Software: 3ds max, Deep Paint, mental ray, Photoshop, ZBrush

Hi guys, this is my latest personal work.
I want to create a grumpy old goblin in an old library.
Inspirations come from world of Harry Potter and also the works of Jean Baptiste Monge.

Here's a close up look of the character :

As usual, any input are very welcome.Thanks for viewing!

Fabulous atmosphere and character. I do feel you have a few minor issues with shadowing here and there, basically just a lack of contrast in places - the hand holding the pipe is a particular trouble spot here. I also think the depth of field in the foreground looks weird, surely there shouldn't be any DOF on those books at the front?

Aside from these, it's a really nice image. Time to get some fresh stuff on the frontpage for the new week.

Very nice. Only crit would be on the Owl. Im assuming its alive since its perched on the chair. A stronger less symetrical pose would help breath a little life into it.

The owl stood out to me too. Overall, I like him, but he looks a bit floaty, as if he is barely perched on the chair. Maybe his claws should be more firmly attached, or dug into the chair. Still, a really nice piece of work here.

Great stuff, nothing to crit here. I like higher contrast in images than this has, but it is only me

I saw it on Front Page, but it is not now there? Something hapened?

Wow wonderful image. Great mood and atmosphere. I agree with others about the owl though. Its talons is not griping the chair (and probably cause a big gash). It would be more appropriate if it is on a perch.

Good work!

Really great work. the character and owl is top notch! Just that lamp with fairydust stands out a little. The light coming from left on face , seems the shelves should block it

Great atmosphere!
