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

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.

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?
