WOW! You've hit another one out of the park! He looks like a dwarf from the LotR movies. I take that back. He looks BETTER than that!
Wow, your skin detailing is just on point man. You're a master at it these days. Also, those eyes are a zbrush render?! Looks great.
He reminds me of the old man Jafar embodies when he tricks Aladdin into going through the cave of wonders
Thank you so much guys! Really he looks like that old man
The eyes are a Zbrush render, toyplastic material tweaked a little bit for them and on the top of the lower eyelid is layed out a longitudal sausage shape extract with the same material applied and transparency on for a bit of a wet effect
BTW I've tweaked it and edited the alst post not to be too boring with much posts. Tweaked the skin and eye shaders, as well as trying out different ways to render out the fibers. I'm now much happier with the skin and eyes, but would very much lilke to work on the fibers from scratch when i find the inspiration for it.
Real wet/oily looking skin ! A very convincing render!

He is cool. I am glad you changed his hair it looks much better short. Shorter fibermesh is easier to control isn't it.
From Gandalf to ser Gandalf that is a really good sculpt, he has a lot of character, I would like to be his friend.
