Alexei Popovici's Sketchbook

Hey guys

I am Alexei Popovici, self-taught 3D Character/Concept Artist from Moldova.
I have been working in game industry as Character artist for several years before i got into board games/ miniature industry.
It was an amazing experience for me, so i decided to concentrate all my efforts in this domain.
What i like about this work is that 99% of my time i can spend in Zbrush sculpting , concepting and simply have fan :slight_smile: no technical stuff like uv’s, low poly’s and so on :slight_smile:

Few projects what i was working on have recently successfully finished their Kickstarter compaigns and i would like to share with you some of the sculpts what i have done.
Critics, opinions and suggestions are more than welcome :slight_smile:

DARKNESS SABOTAGE :

Thats a board game with figures from 32 to 150 mm.
More info about this game:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dezoku/darkness-sabotage-the-board-game/description

I was responsible on creating concepts and models for this project.

Space Pirates:

Rooster

Rooster is diametrically opposed to any kind of tyranny and is a hero of humanity.
His personality is explosive. When he faces Tyranny or evil of any kind he is immediately enraged. He is
quintisential white knight, hero of good wrapped up explosive spirititual weapons and defenses.
Main weapons are the “Peace Maker” (huge Light Cannon) and “Wrecking Ball”(Spiked Iron ball attached to the chain)
