Doing super hi-res work like this both intrigues me, and fills me with worry and stress. I'm intending this summer to get back on the saddle and do some similar stuff. Believe it or not your a big catalyst for it. (refering to LJ projects Gatsu and Fullmetal)

Nice work.

Looks great dude! The hair seems kind of flat, and the flat texture for the ringmail kind of detracts from the overall polish, but otherwise freakin astounding! Going in my :+fav:'s.

Also, even though faux-3D textures with bump and lightmaps are awesome and all, don't rely too much on them to make dips and grooves in super-high poly models like this one. Kind of makes the model look gimmicky and plastic when you view the textures from an angle.

Yeah, I'm not too happy about the chainmail.. but it's cheap and fast. I opted for a lighter model since I knew rendering time was going to be pretty high. I was thinking a displacement map with work better, but in the early test it was painfully slow. Some sanity over quality is how I like to put it. XD

Hahha, thanks! =D

Whoa, talk 'bout amazin' work...

Awesome details! This looks incredibly realisitic! I'm lookin' through Wen's gallery to see if I can find the drawing you based this off of.

I think my favorite part has to be his stubble and scars across his face, though the chainmail and armor is quite astounding!

:heart: Keep up the wonderful work! You're an inspiration to us all~ :heart:

WenM did some redesign when I was making it into 3D so it's changed a little bit.

Hahahha.. Thank you!

the textures are pretty damn awesome. nice work on the hair too. at this rate you and wen could make a 3d fighting game :D in which case, i should be one of the characters too ;)

Konartist3D Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2007
It'll be an EXTREAMELY slow fighting game since he takes 6 hours to render this frame. Considering most fighting games runs at 60 fps.. it'll take about a week for him to throw a punch.

It'll wouldn't be fair.. you'll make Rah cry.. =(

6 hours.......rendering....*dies*. oh i'm chasiewbao btw..one of wenny's friends from the bay area (in case you didn't make a connection or know).

:O we should make a 16bit version of wen's characters >D

Ahhhhhh!! Now I know! =D

16bit?.. That's like Genesis/SNES era with old school sprites? Nahhhh.. I had my fill with working with sprites. Not going back there again. Haha
