I can see how your skills have progressed via your portfolio.

Lugosi is a great choice, love the old "cold" feeling he gives off.

Looking excellent so far.

Good luck

( robo3687, i dont forget you for the screen capture...i dont have my pc with the file today )

Im really enjoying this piece

Great skin shading and lighting, Marc. I'm definately going to use a few ideas from your bump mapping. A few critiques for you:

For the likeness: the Lines on the cheek bones and the fat under the lip are too sharp. The little vein above his eye would be cool to see too.
Lighting: I think you should reveal more of the whites of his eyes, like your reference picture. A lot of character is lost by keeping the eyes in shadow. I'm sure this isn't the final lighting, just what I noticed.

Great work.

Adambolton, thank you .

you have right for the modelisation problems, ill atenuate them.
the lights are for testing only and i think that my new monitor need to be calibrate.
and yes ill add the little vein above is eye ! i completly forgot it !
thank you

here is an update. the bump map are putting in zbrush, and i push the mesh with it.

eyes and eyebrows not done..

Good stuff, so far! Looks like I have some competition...I have a couple questions, though.
1. Any particular reason you chose to model Lugosi so late, past his prime? Is it so you can model more detail?
2. Have you started to model the body yet?
3. What kind of pose will he be modeled in?
4. Very nice lighting setup! How many lights are you using? Are you using VRay?
