I just started this head, I have a version with little horns, but I gotta work on those some more, the mouth was a little tricky and that should get a little revision too. The idea "I think" I am going for at this point is a devil with a business suit top/shoulders, and a hand or two, in the scene, one smoking a cigarette, or a cigar, or even presenting something, Bare with me, this is an evolution in process. O.K folks, rock on!
Forget the horns Pang. Go for the Joker! This would be a great start on a version of him. Color him up and put him in a proper scene and he will rock!
o.k this guy is done, well in my point of view he is. i don't mean to pat my self on the back, by no means, when I say that I am pleased with the way this turned out. The big difference "i think" was the color adjustments made in z-brush, adjusting contrast and brightness. Assembly is usually a bugger, but the work flow for the assembly on this went pretty smooth, the eyes were done in projection master, but any coloring to the skin was done in real time. The skin was a modification of basic material 1, just messing with noise patterns. The pitch fork was meant to be more metalic looking, i just made the reflection to high, but after a long render on my dinosaur pc, i am hesitant to adjust it, because i do feel it works well. p.s I wanted to have some smoke drifting from the ciggi, but no matter how many patterns i tried, and different shades of grey, it just didn't work, it didn't look right over the flames, so I left it like this... and after looking at an actual ciggi, i decided it isn't all that dense, enless your going for a more illustrated "cartoony" feel, and although this characters dimensions are cartoonish" I think the materials and environment lean towards a more "realistic" feel. I don't like really using anything that I didn't create myself, but the background is royalty free pic I obtained and safe from copyright infringement. Also, I know shoot me like a fish in a barrel "i don't care" but the hand was posed from poser, and imported as a wav.obj... like i said I don't care, I can't model hands for "crap" and everyone "almost" uses all these other programs to assist with their final pictures, and I am too broke to buy these programs so I use what I got. Some post work done in coreldraw/photo paint 7 (another dinosaur) but gets the job done.
o.k, thanks for reading my disertation, lol....
