    Great work however you have this nice dynamic poise horse but no facial expression on the rider. How comes?

    This is quite possibly the best sculpt I've ever seen on ZBC. The traditional style and dynamic pose is astounding. You truly have a gift.

    thanks, i was aiming for a classical approach to the sculpt, faces are usually pretty neutral or at least don't have extreme expressions. and the rider is not charging or talking.
    he is pretty calm and rested at this moment, not in battle mode.


    so now i little more in depht mini wip.
    i first started to work on the horse, cause that was something i wasn't confortable with, and what's better than start from the zbrush dog and a lot of dynameshing later here comes the horse.
    i tried different pose and various test to get to the final result

    for the fine fur i simply used the penshadow brush, i found that brush really efficient to get nice short hair like this and if you change the stroke type, you either get a fine line to make precise hair like on the head or easy hair for larger areas using the spray.

    the cushioning was done with noisemaker and some inflat deformation tool

    for the pose, the mannequin was pretty usefull to make various test with having to spend too much time reposing what i already had sculpted

    some details were sculpted and then used as an alpha like medusa's face, saved me a lot of poly on an already pretty heavy file

    and that's pretty much it nothing too fancy


    thanks for viewing !

    Thanks again, for the make of material! Could you share with us some info about the part concerning the 3d print, like how many pieces this work had to be cut into?

    Hi, i can't really tell for sure as for those ones, i don't work on the cuts but i would say 4 big pieces and a couple of tiny separate objects, but it could vary a lot if the molds are made base on the efficiency of the mold making or based on the incoming paint job.

    I see.. well, I can't wait for the final product anyway, since ARH Studio does great job with 3d prints and final collectible pieces.

    Very well executed here. Sharp work and lovely lighting!

    Now, I don't mean to be rude but I must be direct and ask if you borrowed your unusually epic horse pose from Pierre-Louis Rouillard's great work? If so, you ought to mention that. The pose is quite well known and particular to his sculpture.

    Edit: Thanks for adding the credit to your OP.

    Great work. I understand you put all your focus on that great horse, but Alexander looks a bit boring to me, like some modern Hollywood actor, not like a greek soldier.
    where is his classic greek nose for instance
    but perhaps you made some consecions to modern tastes?

    but beside of that, i apreciate your work very much!

    Yes, we mentioned that from the start and it wasn't a secret on the other forum where the arh statues are talked about during wip process. Forgot to mention that here tho, my bad.

    Yeah totally, the art direction was aimed in that way, younger, and like you said, more like an hollywood actor than the real deal. style choice i would say
