The dawn of the vampire

Hey guys! This is my first post in the wip forum.
Some info about the scene... the vampire will sit on the throne... looking a bit sad and angry(he is old and sick...) he will hold in one hand a scepter. I will detail the thorne as much as i can, in the back... there will be a courtain. I will work at the lighting.

The character... well... he is my dad .... I dreamt of him beeing a vampire when i was about 8 or 9 years. He will wear an armor or something.... and a cape. He is my 3rd character. I only worked at him for about 2-3 hours so i will tweek it and try to clean the wire as much as possible... Then i will unwrap and detail all the way in zbrush(i work in zbrush for a month or so... and i am handling myself quite well in it)

I hope u like the ideea...

and the wire:

You have some issues with the topology of the head. The edge flow needs to sit right if ur planning to make face expressions as u mentioned in the first post. Here is a rough idea of the edge flow i made by my sucky mouse its not perfect but fits the idea.

I fixed the neck bones... and futher detailed the head...

2 renders... one with skin(from the picassa tutorial)

with skin(from that tut)

and without skin(to show the actual sculpting)

For this detail... i used my dad as a refrence.... all the wrinkles will be detailed... i will inflate all the spaces between them so they act like normal wrinkles...

i hope you like it...

i kinda like the pail(white kinda face... like he hasn`t got any good blood left in him, that`s why i call it The dawn of the vampire)

wow nice looking hand
but you should improve the head i think for it to fit

i mean , the hand is waaaay more good looking than the head!

keep up!

thx man! i`m glad u like it! I will detail the head once I finish the whole scene.

exported to max...

I need to make the red lines more dark... i like the mat as it is now

I think that 2day i`ll make tests for the lighting... then make him a good shirt... then detail the scene...

[edit] I need to make the nails too!
