Hulahuga - Battle Chess

Hey ho guys and gals,


Posted a couple of teaser images in my sketch box before so decidedly I am continuing with the model.

Great fun also making a medieval model since that is one of my favorite historic eras. As of yet I am planning on making him as real as possible and also add in an emotional element both in the posture and the character himself. Him actually being there on the battlefield, a pawn in the midst of battle. Kind of...

I give you The Pawn - with inspiration from medieval English guardsmen...

Update 1

Revised the cheekbones some more. A bit ambiguous to how "gruntish" I should make him...

Also guys; what's best: BPR or Best render?

Update 4 - Plastic Surgery and A Pair of Armored Gloves
Away with the flabby nose and in with a bit of revision as well as a new pair of armored gloves.

Now off to Salamanca, Spain, in the morrow . Will be there for the most part of three weeks with the exception of some excursions to Madrid and perhaps Portugal, so if anyone is in the vicinity feel free to give me a call!

this is coming on pretty well - a guardsman is a good choice for a pawn. you need to be careful not to make him too much of a hero though - pawns are cannon fodder
on the negative side, you need to take a long hard look at his coat thing. its not hanging like cloth right now...

You mean the tabard (overcoat) right? If so then yes, it is not done yet . I actually have a real one at home to take the ref from when I get back home so I will make sure it looks spot on. Funny fact about it though is that they usually have linings and such at the ends of the fabric which really twists the curves and folds of the fabric in strange ways...

Thanks for your comments!

Wil-Himura - Thanks! Well I actually still have some trouble getting all the alphas and brushes to work as I want them too (which is to say the randomizing and stamp spacing of mudbox) . But keep on practising! You could actually take a look at my Speed Sculpt Time Lapse where I show some of the ways I work in Mudbox...

Kaiune 3D - Well have some thoughts about that as well... Either a hillebard (then he will be more of a guard and less of a hero) or sword and shield . What do you think?

AlucardAssassin - Cheers man!
