Magneto Head, Jonathan Clark (3D)



Title: Magneto Head
Name: Jonathan Clark
Country: United States
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, ZBrush

Ok so I decided to do a Sir Ian McKellen Magneto likeness. I really just wanted test myself as to how much detail I could push. This was also my first time using Keyshot as a renderer and I have to say it does a really good job and it does it fast.

It's a great technical piece, if I may though it's REALLY begging to be made into a bust.

I find there's a massive divide in the impact of a portrait when you have a bust, even if framed above the clavicles, vs a head floating in space with the neck cut or wrapped.

For the amount of additional work it'd represent I think it'd be really worth going back to it and extend it.

Regardless, it's still a strong piece. Plugged

It isn't actually. Looks just about perfect to me.

Phenomenal work, Jonathan. The eyes are alive, man - kudos.

Thank you all for your comments. Yeah I'd like to go back and add the shoulders at some point. I'm in the process of finding a job at the moment so I have to maximize my time, try and cut corners where I can, and focus on perfecting only certain parts I think give me more bang for my buck. Compositionally I think it would benefit me though, you're right.

I love it. Something about the nose I'm not buying, though...

As already said, the nose is too stubby. I also think the corners of the mouth should droop a tiny bit. It looks like he's attempting to smile, but not quite...

Truly quality work, with great likeness. Definitely this head begs to be made as a bust!
Great render as well, lately I see more and more beautiful human renders done with this.Congrats!

Great Job, very nice details Jonathan.
Maybe the light of face is a little different on the helmet, i think that seems to float in the middle...
I agree ThE_JacO´s comment also
