could we have a brighter render ? so we can see the detail and things abit beter.
Looks quite good as a start tho.

excellent work there, as far as the render goes, there's a nice dramatic style lighting which would fit well with "lurking in the shadows2 kind of thing. I'd like to see the wireframe of the mesh and your loops etc. and a simple clay render aswell.
This looks great and very stylised as black and white too.

Thank u guys!!
in fact I wanted a dark scene plays with contrast in order to give the image a strong intensity.. I'm gonna fix the contrast on photoshop ,here is the wire ( with displace map) and the work on Mudbox...

Great work. The wireframe is excellent, and the mudboxing is awesome as well. I do have one crit though, I done think he's muscular enough to be wolverine. Maybe square up his chin a bit, and thicken the neck. That's just me though.

Looking so so good, are you going to try and create an aged Wolverine, it's just in the comics and the 3 films he's got an appearance of 35-40 years old, because of his regenative mutant powers he's actually 75-80 years old as he fought in World War II.
Incidently Hugh Jackman who has played this character in all 3 X-Men films has signed up for a 2008 release of a Wolverine movie of his own, which will be excellent.
There's so many comic book movies out and coming out i'm in pleasure overload.
I've recently watched Fantastic 4 - The Rise Of The Silver Surfer & Spider-man 3 (Spider-man 3 was great but a little long at 2 hours 30)
I'm a huge comic book fan especially Marvel and coming soon we'll be able to see a new Incredible Hulk movie with Edward Norton (The Italian Job Remake) as the hulk with capture performance and as Bruce Banner of Course with Liv Tyler (Armageddon) as Betty Ross, John Hurt (Hell Boy, Harry Potter, The Elephant Man) as Her father and Tim Roth (Planet Of The Apes Remake) as Abomination! Also Edward Norton is a pretty well established underground screenplay writer and as such has written a large amount of the screenplay for the film. It's going to be a new beginning telling the tell very similar to the tortured soul of Frankenstein's Monster, very similar to the original TV series. They are trying to steer as far away from Ang Lee's version of the film, but the hulk will still be CGI but early reports are that the hulk will look more like the original actor too. I personally liked Ang Lee's portrayol of the Hulk but i'm excited about this new one for next year.
Also Iron Man is currently in production the tale of Tony Stark having a decaying/ill body and wears the body armor and fights crime etc. That will have Robert Downer Jnr as the starring role.
And of course the only 2 DC characters that I liked are set for a comeback, Superman will return again but it's only rumored and won't probably be until 2009, but Batman is returning with a sequel to the amazing Batman Begin's with Dark Knight!!! Everyone apart from Katie holmes is returning to the film aswell, apparently they were'nt best pleased with Holmes' performance in the first film and Chris Nolan has instilled the very cute (in my opinion) Maggie Gyllenhaal as Rachel Dawes and english actor Heath Ledger as the Joker, from what i've seen it's going to surpass the first film. Not many sequels can manage that, especially when it comes to the Batman series of movies I won't even mention the Batman & Robin film, that was painful. But there's only a handful of truelly great films that have had superb sequels, think The Mummy Returns & Spider-man 2.
Anyway, sorry about that I just wanted to share that information with you. It was kinda relevant Wolverine being a Marvel Comic Character and all :)
Keep the great work up, looking cool so far!

Thanks Parlee :) you're right about the neck , it should be a little bigger, but in final version on photoshop I risk to lose this modification :s ,anyway I 'll try..

Thanks a lot for your comment ''Classic gamer''!! :) I was happy , when you said than this image have a ''dramatic style lightning'', because it's a piece of what I tried to achieved...
Effectively I tried to get an older Wolverine (about 40-50) to have more expression and specially a ''slighty look''
I heard about the Wolverine "spin off'' and I just can't wait to see it :) effectively I thought than Hugh Jackman perfectly give live to the comic character , with deep and great presence..
Me too, I 'm a fan of comic book,althoug I have less time to follow their adventures now...
Marvel rock all my childhood ,and great artists like Jim lee , Silvestri ,Mc Farlane,Travis Charest,etc (which keep inspiring me) are one the factor of Marvel's success...
Nowadays,it seems than Hollywood find a lucrative breach with Marvel's heroes, now, we can only hope than studios find a good balance
between action and drama (Batman 's Tim burton and Chris Nolan, X-Men and specially Sam Raimi's Spider-man , is a good example for me)
New ''Iron-Man'' ( with a great actor like Robert Downey Jr) and Edward Norton in next Hulk (who participate to the script) show than studios seems to give more importance to the artistic dimension
Now, wait and see.. :)
And don't worry me too ,I'm a fan , so it's always a pleasure to discuss, share information with another fan ;)

Excellent stuff, I particulalry like the wrinkles and slight age sculpted into the face at the moment, i'm awful with organic modelling and i'm been seriously consider Mudbox of ZBrush but i'm not a fan of the high geometry that ZBrush produces. But this is certainly shaping up nicely.
One of the things i've noticed with the Dark Knight next Batman movie, is that the Joker really really looks scary and sinister. Not to say that Jack Nicolson's Joker wasn't disurbing back in the 80's but times have moved on and you actually have to try a little harder to scare the audiences today, and from the screens i've seen on IMDB & Comingsoon.net Heath Jedger's Joker is really on the button, it's got a slight nod to the original comics and the 60's TV series in appearance, but then the horror has been turned up a notch and you'd really wanna run if you met him in a dark alleyway.
I totally agree with your comments about the studio's artistic dimensions, but also a very high factor is that since the success of Hellboy, League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Spider-man & X-men etc, the studio's know that they'll make alot of money off these films, sadly that's not the way it should be, very few independent films get made just for having a huge fanbase with the exception of Snakes On A Plane, which actually had fans writing scenes in the movie and keeping the predicatable movie name. Not many comicbook films will make it to the big screen unless they are going to make the studios more that it takes to produce. Sad but true.
The only reason Superman Returns was made was for the fact that Brian Singer invested a huge amount of his own money at the start, then when the studio's realised that comic book films were becoming big money, over half of the topname studio's such as Warner Bros, Universal, Columbia Tristar & Searchlight came knocking at Mr Singer's door.
You see comic book adaptations are all the rage right now, and also totally different genre's of movies for the viewing. All too often movies are getting re-made. There's even rumours that Peter Jackson's new release in production will be a re-make of The Dambusters, this was and is a quintessential wartime british classic, so he's going to have to pull out the stops and make it similar to that of Pearl Harbour rather than Sky Captain Of The World.
Hopefully it won't be long until I get to see my alltime fave comic book characters in their own movies.
I'd love to see Deadpool or Carnage but imagine Thundercats it'd have to be performance capture CG animated characters, and with the technology so close to photoreal now it'd be so cool. Think of the best artwork you've seen created with Zbrush or Mudbox, then mix that in the the realism of Transformers for the Lair and The Thundertank. Wow that would be so cool in my opinion.
Only time will tell I suppose. And if there is a market for it.
When you get chance keep going with this Wolverine Sokrat, it's looking cool.
