    Default Alastor - game character wip

    At first, i wanted to post this character finished, to blow peoples mind. But every day, this forum reminds me that i don't have wet the ability to blow peoples mind.
    I also noticed that frequent updates makes a thread a lot more visible.

    So, enough talking, here is my wip on Alastor, a character i created for a personal game project.

    Head started in zpheres, then retopologized.

    Arms and (hidden) torso made for zpheres, hands basemesh created in max.

    Coat and boot basemesh done in max.
    At this step the character miss some elements: forearm armor plate, pants, toggles, scraf and ammo belt.

    His combined weapon (polearm and rifle) is already done.

    Just need to do some tweaks on blade texture.

    I finally have the main shapes of the coat. As he's going to wear a scarf, dont consider the lack of details on the collar. Also the sleeves area are not detailed yet.
    Matcap is "Argilla" by Mauro Patrizi.

    And some paintover to figure how the character will be.

    I like the new additions you have planned; they're definitely heading in the right direction! Not sure you should do the moustache though, as you lose one of the most unique features of your character - that mouth!

    Hey thanks for the comment ! Yeah i was hesitating for the mustache, i had in mind a very light one, but seems that it hides the mouth even like that. I'll rather try to make a bad shaved look in textures.
    Stay tuned.

    Interesting design and nice sculpt work. Would be nice with added beard!

    the hand and forearm armor looks very similar to the wrath in stargate atlantis.. maybe you could use that as a source of inspiration?

    Hey thanks for the comment !
    I watched Stargat Atlantis only once... Do you have a picture of the armor ? Didn't found one on the net.

    Update !
    Only need to add hair and fixing for the chain, then i'll head on fine details, sewings, scratches, etc.

    Looking great so far. Love the hair too!

    Question, did you do that quick drawing (the hair, etc) in Zbrush or with photoshop later on?

    Thanks for the comment rooky.
    I did the paintover in photoshop. I read a lot about Paintstop but i didn't tried it. I might be wrong, but there days i only practice modeling and texturing for video game purpose. Not so much drawing... My tablet is too small and too tired for good cg drawings anyway, hopefully i have sometime a little moment for a pen sketch.

    Here is finally an update of the damn bloody hell of a coat ! I got so much bugs... I solve the problem by splitting the coat in 4 subtools, with overlaps for clean normal baking. I lost easily 3 days of work because of issues on this part.
    Anyway, i'm happy with it.
