Todd Mcfarlane’s Spawn
[color=white]COMIC BOOK MASTER NAME : Todd Mcfarlane

Demonstration Video :…yer_profilepage


Description: Spawn is on of my favorite characters. A demoniac soul with some kind of “good” mission. I always wanted to do a Spawn and with this challange i had the opportunity and inspiration. i Tried to keep all of the Spawn’s features, but giving a bit of my interpretation too. I did a simple Zsphere basemesh to the body and all subtools are made in Max. Using the Zbrush Decimate, i put all in to Max and rendered with mental ray. Composed with Photoshop.
Thank you Todd to your inspiring work!
