Title: Bad To The Bone
Name: Kosta Atanasov
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay, ZBrush
Hey guys! This work is from the beginning of 2006, and I actually wanted to show it when the whole movie is completed, but since I dont have much time to work on it it seems clear that theres no sense to wait. This is the main character for my graduation flick at the university, which unfortunately is still in a near initial state (I mean the short movie, not the university or the graduation). I have already graduated, but with another animation a short pseudo-cutout (I have posted it on my website as well). The work pipeline I used on this is: Low poly modeling and UWV unwrap in 3D studio Max, detail and textures in Zbrush and Photoshop, and mid poly with normal maps import in Max again. Its rendered in V-ray, as the whole movie would be when completed.
In short, the whole idea of the Bad To The Bone movie-to-be is that bikers, aside from looking mean with all the sculls, black leather and spikes are actually nice normal people, that not everything that glitters is gold and vice versa not everything that is gold, glitters. Ive decided to name the character Bad for contrast. Heres some more info about him:
Bad is a true old school biker. A lone wolf, he loves to ride alone he doesnt need anyone else. On his scarred face you can rarely see emotion the one thing that changes his stone expression is the rare squeezing of the eyes, the slow movement of the heavy eyebrows as they drop even lower. He has the hardcore macho aura, and never, ever smiles. His passion for motorcycles, for the smell of gasoline and burning tire can only be compared to the love of leather clothes and sculls, with which he decorates every possible thing starting from his bike, the belt, the boots, the tattoos, to the rings on his hands he LOVES sculls. Looking mean, acting tough, inside he is truly a nice guy but he never allows for others to know that. He is content with the world thinking that he is the Bad and mean biker. He doesnt show that he cares about anything, and doesnt let anything crack his stone cold attitude. He is the personification of the word Badass if there is a “Badass Biker Association”, than Bad is its president.
