Title: SEGA’s VIKING - Hel
Name: Michael Kutsche
Software: Painter, Photoshop, XSI
Hel, Skarin’s evil opponent from the recently released Sega/The Creative Assembly title Viking: Battle for Asgard.
The task was to achieve a rather realistic and more detailed feel of the in-game character. Since it was used for life-size standee prints, the artwork has an extremely high resolution, it was a challenge to bring in all the details while preventing from a too stiff and unnatural look with that huge size. 95 percent done in Painter X and Photoshop CS3, only the chain whip is 3d.
