2010 Comicon: Valkyrie, Jon-Troy Nickel (3D)

Title: 2010 Comicon: Valkyrie
Name: Jon-Troy Nickel
Country: United States

This is my character from the 2010 Comicon challenge.

I picked the marvel comic book heroine Valkyrie - But i wanted to revamp her in my own way! I used Maya, 3dsMax, Photoshop, Zbrush and xnormal in her creation, but did not render her - i used Xoliul's FREE 3dsmax viewport shader. Aside from the background / smoke and particles which are added in photoshop - this a straight viewport grab from 3dsmax.

She is all handpainted, except for the dirt map overlay for the metal - i wanted to keep her clean almost like that pvc figurine look!

She is roughly 11200 tris and uses 2k maps.

Thumbs up

Looks like underwater nice wings. Armour could have more contrast in specular. Love the rose details on helm, belt and legs.

Good work!
Render Life....

Thanks for the kind replies all !

Dodgeas3d: Thanks man, i agree with you - it does look undewater. Just kinda ended up that way after a very long night of trying to finish the competition haha!

Jibin08: Thanks for your comments, I decided to really change the subject this time, i wouldnt have the motivation to be working full time in the industry and cram this out in 5 weekends if i was simply making a duplicate marvel Valkyrie, so I wanted to make her my own, to challenge myself and also give my own flare to it. I hope i achieved that!

Some more shots for you I hope you likethem!
