The GoldenAxe Twins, John Hayes (3D)
Title: The GoldenAxe Twins
Name: John Hayes
Software: Maya, Modo, Mudbox, Photoshop, XSI, ZBrush
The two Twins I created for the Sega video game, Golden Axe Beast Rider released on the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox360.
The characters were modeled in Maya, high-rez sculpt created in Zbrush, normal maps created in Mudbox, ambient occlusion in XSI, textures edited in Photoshop and Modo used for UV unwrapping, texture clean-up, and rendering. The character is roughly 15000 polygons with three 2048x2048 image map sets. The final image has some paint over clean-up done by the concept artist, Silvio Aebischer.
Using Modo's subsurface skin shaders, a few colored lights and some saturated image maps I was able to get some color variation in the skin, as I had hoped to get a look similar to a Frank Frazetta painting, however I am not sure what other techniques I can use to get closer.
The image was created for Sega marketing purposes however the model is the same geometry as seen in-game. This image has been published in the Golden Axe: Beast Rider Strategy Guide as well as Game Developer Magazine.
