The Thing, Tristan Lock (3D)


#1

Title: The Thing
Name: Tristan Lock
Country: Australia
Software: Maya, mental ray, ZBrush

I made this guy to test out working with displacement maps. As well as forcing myself to do more texturing and shading. I’ll probably animate it later.
I was also trying to portray the psychological pain a person would go through after being hideously mutated from cosmic radiation. Thats why he’s looking away.

#8

Thanks for your comments guys.

That’s why he’s screaming. :scream: J/K

Not much to look at. Most of it was done in Zbrush.


#9

That’s why he’s screaming. :scream: J/K

Thats what I figured LOL:scream:


#10

just curious will the shorts be removed Surgicaly?


#11

It’s hard to tell if he is angry or in pain from the pose and focus of his eye at his semi-clenched fist --almost like he has a large splinter. I think he should be turned more towards the camera than away from it. Interesting texture work. I think the shorts have a nice rubber/latex look. Generally, the rock skin is good. Overall, I like it.


#12

It looks like you made Jae Lee’s Thing from the miniseries Hard Knocks.


#13

Good job on texturing, image looks very nice. Definitly the best Thing I’ve seen all Summer, at least he looks like stone and not rubber.


#14

Looks cool. I think the traditional Thing has a different shaped head but maybe you made a version I do not know. Otherwise great work.

I really like the pose. Where the calf intersects with the thigh looks a bit funny, but otherwise I really like it.

Thanks for all your critiques.

I was trying to do my own interpretation of the thing. But that is one that i was using for reference. So yeah, it pretty close. Here’s a little front render.
