Nosferatu, Sebastian Schoellhammer (3D)



Title: Nosferatu
Name: Sebastian Schoellhammer
Country: Japan
Software: Maya, mental ray, Mudbox, ZBrush

I created the model for this image initially for the "classic movie monsters" contest over at Kolbies excellent SinisterCircle forum..
It is based on Klaus Kinski in Herzog Werners Nosferatu (a film, although long and slow I can very much recommend!) I tried to convey the melancholy of the character.

Long time passed and recently I finally got some time and motivation for doing some textures and rendering. I might do a bit of animation but I guess that'll be later!

Sculpting was done in Zbrush, Texturing in mudbox and rendering with mental ray in Maya. I've used displacement maps on everything but the collar (reduced in zbrush).
There are 3 area lights from the front/bottom and 2 spots for back lighting.

Hope you like!

Incredible! The eyes are perfect.

My only complaint is the mouth. You can see that the inside of the mouth is blacker than any other of the blacks in the image, making it look slightly strange. Also, the outline of the teeth is very sharp overtop of that black, while the rest of the image is slightly blurred.

Great work, his eyes are very expressive! The only thing that catches my eye is the whiteness of the teeth, they could use some color break up and subsurface imho.

Well done

Thanks a lot!!
Mmh.. yes. You people are right of course - the mouth is too dark! Let's just pretend it's a view straight into his very black soul (and say nothing about the fact that my monitors gamma is probably a bit off!) I will fix it when I do animation for him though, promise!
