Elven Knight, Michael Stern (3D)



Title: Elven Knight
Name: Michael Stern
Country: Czech Republic
Software: 3ds Max 5, Final Renderer Stage 1, Adobe Photoshop

Hello,
this is my first attemp to create a character. I'm not well experienced MAX user, so I will be happy for any critique :).
This picture is created in 3DS MAX 5 with Final Renderer Stage 1 and a little adjusted in Photoshop.

Hello mister starwalker

U sure you're not a well experienced max user? That picture is very nice. Texturing, modeling, composition.. I've nothing to crit.

When I look at the picture I see an elven warrior who finally comes home after many battles. He could be standing on the top of a hill with view to his home village. That's cool.

he's looking really good and moody Some thing to point out are his hair and cloak are not looking so natural yet, and his body is a bit lost (same blue asn the cloak?) Also if you would pose him so that we see more of his geture

The lighting could use some work as it's a bit flat in places and too evenly lit. Better dispertion of light across the surfaces to help distinguish important areas and adding more mood/depth to the shot will help tremendously. I like it overall though, just some minor tweaks and you'll have a solid piece.

Thanks a lot :o). I'll try do something with the lighting and maybe with hair texture (it looks little unreal, but I like this style .

WTF is with this server's compression!? Pics like this deserve to be seen in better quality.

It's very stylish, but the way the hair is it comes off as anime-ish. I'd also change the textures on the shoulders to a different type. Maybe something with a high colored reflectance.

Thats an amazing modeling job for a first character. However i would suggest a more readable pose. Having his face turned away from the camera, leaving a bunch of hair floating in the wind, doesn't make much sense to me. That character definitely needs a face, or at least part of it showing up. Given the fact that the lighting, texturing is not very good, it took me a while to figure that this was a human figure with a cloak, holding a shord. But again, thats just my opinion.

Looks good. But, I think what would make it look even better, is if you had his head turned and him looking behind him out of the corner of his eye. It would look more dynamic. You could also do a long shot where he's standing on a hill top of blowing grass looking back. That too would look cool. At least, that's what I picture anyway.

I think he's partly right..
It might be a good idea to have him turn his head, and give us a mean look, so we can see his face, and it would add to the character's aura, feeling.
