Title: Hairy Old Man
Name: Jose Alves da Silva

Submitted: 28th January 2013

I made this character portrait as personal work.
It was sculpted in ZBrush and rendered in 3DSMax with Vray.
I hope you like it. :slight_smile:


Wonderful rendering and really great design brother! Congrats!!


Thank you, Vic!

Here is the ZBrush sculpting sequence using Dynamesh and starting from a Sphere:


I used Fibermesh to create the hair inside ZBrush:


Here is an almost full resolution detail. The final image was rendered at 3535x5000pixels.


great modelling i love it the skin but the ear is 2much long this for me
any way
good luck


Lovely character, it holds up well at a high resolution.
My only crit would be that you have a wonderful character, but no real story going on in the render (ie, would be nice to tell a little more story in the background)

It would also be cool to see some over exaggerated expressions on his face! Almost crazy.

Great work, I’m a great fan of your work!



Incredible oldman. I love shaders, lighting and hairs!


Thank you for the feedback, everyone :slight_smile:


Wow, I am amazed by the detail you can see in the full resolution render. Great work. :slight_smile:


Solid work! Thanks for posting your WIP images.


Wow, i’m very amazed by the skin shader, i try to create him but i always failed … What’s your secrets ? :bowdown:


Very nice work in every respect! There’s a good balance of cartooniness and realism.


I like your design, very personal.


The reflection of the sky light in his eyes is just too … wonderful … well done :slight_smile:

And maybe the light behind his ears is too strong?

But very good Art anyway :wink:


lovely design


Está muito bom :wink: really love it =P


I love the expression and Wonderful rendering!!
grate work :slight_smile: Congrats!!


Thanks guys! :slight_smile:
