    Default Race For The Globe - Character Diorama (UPDATED with Character Expressions)

    Hi there,

    Here's a little diorama I made as part of a personal project I've been working on for the last couple of years. I made base meshes in Maya and then did the rest in Zbrush. Render is just a quick BPR, plus alpha lens blur and some gradients in Photoshop.



    I have loads more work for the project over on my blog. You can check it out here:

    Cheers!

    Great sculpt! I'd lose the lens blur, though. It's distracting and blurs out some details that are so good they need to be shown off. If your sculpt extended out into the background farther I could see a good use for it, but as it stands, you should show your work to its best effect.

    These models are great, I love the character design and the cleanliness of the shapes!

    They reminds Team Fortress 2, but with an interesting twist!

    I hope you will texture and render them properly!

    Default fantastic blog

    Hi Nick,

    Glad I discovered (if late) this thread and your awesome blog.

    Really like your work and style!!! Hope to see much more.

    (Interesting how yet another great artist is influenced by Miyazaki)

    Thanks for all the kind words!

    voodoodad: I agree that the lens blur is a little cheap. I just threw it together in Photoshop. I'll do a more accurate depth blur when I render the diorama properly.

    Here's a sculpt of Cairne Bloodhoof that I did on the Artists' Stage at Blizzcon last year. It was auctioned of during the event and the winner received a 3d print of the bust:

    nice characters. I don't mind the lens blur on the previous piece I think it makes you focus on the foreground characters
