passage through the old shrine, mohamadtaghi aibaghi esfehani (3D)

Title: passage through the old shrine
Name: mohamadtaghi aibaghi esfehani
Country: Iran
Software: Maya, mental ray, Photoshop, ZBrush

Hello every one,
This is a project that I've been working on for a couple of months part time.
Beeing inspired by Frank Frazetta's amazing paintings I decided to depict an art work in
which, a valiant warrior is passing through an old haunted place facing some evil characters.
Now Im not sure whether or not he breaks ito a fight with these guys so feel free to interpret.
For this piece, I used Maya, Zbrush, Mental ray, Photoshop,shave and haircut...
All the textures were painted using Zbrush per polly painting function and projection master
in combination with basic Photoshop techniques.
I tried not to use any real life textures and painted all the details by hand.
Hope u like it and comments are totally welcome.

This is a great scene. I like the lighting and textures on the characters. If I would critique something would be the expression of the main character, which on the contrary seems to have no expression. If you would probably add some emotion to his face, and probably modify a bit his posture, it would add even more tension to the scene. Nevertheless, great job.

Smile yeap

I must say that I am aware of the fact that the main characters pose is too relax for this scene. I kinda wanted to make him look like he is not affraid at all, but seems like I wasnt so sucsessful.
thanks any ways.

I think that the modelling, texturing and lighting are all great!
The composition doesn't have the impact for me I know the image has to potential to provide, perhaps if you rework the poses as you say this might just come naturally.

Great work though!
Keep it up!

Excellent textures on the main character and a i also loved the detail models on your portfolio and the character designs excellent light as well.
Although, facial expressions does make me feel they are hypnotized or still.

Keep up the good work.
