tsabszy - Battle Chess

thought i'd join, sounds like a nice competition..
my idea is simple, i just would like to practice a little since recently i have to create only diffuse hand drawn textures and i haven't touched zbrush for almost 3 months from now so it's time to find out if i still remember something.

i was thinking to make a king, or a queen figure. nothing special about it. queen would dominate with boobs, king would dominate with wisdom...

theese were my initial thoughts, but after i have sketched a bit i feel like going for the king, coz i won't have much spare time, and that's the easier choise

since noone seems to create only portrait figures, maybe my figure is gonna be dominated but creating a portrait figure instead of a character with full body will help me assuring i'll finish the contest
so here are the sketching, i don't draw pretty but it'll do to get the feeling out from my brain
in the end it's gonna be a little figure sculpted out of bone (maybe some gems, but i don't wanna put painting on it basicly)
the style i hope is going to be more real at the end, or kinda like starcraft 2 in-game cinematics that i love so much and wich is not just real but a bit idealized style
(i mean this:
http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/57...4999D694853D4/ )

or at least that's what i'm aiming at..





good luck and work for everyone

thx but it's only a basic sculpt of some stereotipe king face.. and yet his face look more like he could cold heartidly send his men wave after wave till he run out of all.. rather then a wise king.. i hope i can find the balance between a "know what to do" kinda wise look, and a strong emperor at the same time.. since he has only a face, the expression is important

i was thinking on some jewelry, like necklace and hanging stuff off the crown, or braided mustage or something.. i'll see while detailing if it suits to him or not

In my opinion, the only thing making your king look cold hearted is the eyes. A little tweaking of the brows, wrinkles, and maybe even placement of the eyes is all it would take to change the entire personality. Can't wait to see it finished!

Hey looking great so far!

What's wrong with making him cold-hearted? :-P

He looks coldhearted in the concepts (especially the second one). A good option might be to make him MORE cold hearted :-P
Solid work so far, looking forward to seeing where you go with it.
Good luck!

i wont add more wrinkles and micro detail since it's gonna be a little figure sculpted out of ivory and it wouldn't be believable

SnappedStrings you're right but i don't want to create a dark character, only a strong king, that's all :P
peter21caldwell yep, maybe i'm the only one making only head-based figure


btw i'll be out for a few days i have another duties to do.. i hope i'll have time to continue after a few days

washka yep.. lots of work to do..

decided to model it in zbrush coz i don't have much spare time
besides that i haven't touched the crown, i have much tuning left to do. the beard and hair polishing chews up lots of time, so i'm going to lay down the main details (also the crown) then move back to polishing
