Speed Sculpt Challenge - 003 - Supersoldier (Nudity Warning)


Welcome to the third challenge of The Speed Sculpting competition. The only place to sculpt.

Rules:

1. The competition will last two weeks, which will be allocated to creating and submitting the entries, followed by several days of judging and voting the entries -- at which point the next competition will start.
2. The moderators will be supplying a base mesh for each competition (this week's provided by forum user Crimson King, it is the same basemesh as in the Manimal competition), from which everyone will start sculpting. This is so we all get an equal start and it keeps us on topic.
3. There will be a time limit for the sculpting. Spend no longer than the allocated time limit, then post a screen-grab of your model. No cheating, we are relying on your honesty here.
4. Do not add any meshes other than those sanctioned in this competition brief.
5. As the base mesh shows, the sculpt is a shoulders, torso and head sculpt only, do not attempt to extend this into a full-body sculpt.
6. No rendering, texturing, lighting or rigging, let's keep it all about the high-res sculpt. What we are looking for is the quality of the sculpts you can produce "under pressure". If your entry is not complete, you can still post as long as it's recognizable and on topic.
7. For your final entry, post a screen-grab from your software with your finished work in it. It's fine to present this stuff nicely, with nice labelling etc, but do not add any post-production to the images themselves. These images must be uploaded to our servers by using the "manage attachments" button on the forum reply page. Do not link to external images files. Larger than the maximum size or posts containing links to external images (other than for reference materials) will be removed and the poster disqualified.
8. You can have multiple entries, but you can have only one final entry for each competition.
9. Do not create your own WIP thread. Simply post all WIP screen-grabs in here, and your FINAL entry in this thread.

These rules apply to everybody taking part, there will be NO exceptions!
We've attached the base mesh at the bottom of this post. Take it and go subdivide.

Prizes
The main prize of the '3D Print' is going to be awarded on alternate competitions, so for this challenge the prizes are as follows:

The winner can choose any 2 3DTotal products from our shop from the ranges of 3DTotal Books, 3DTotal DVDs (all textures, shorts and training) and 12 month mag subscriptions.

Time limit - 4 hours
Deadline - Tuesday June 10th, 10:00 AM GMT +0
Subject - Supersoldier.

This time it's about supersoldiers, commandos, siege veterans, muscle packed battleworn gods of the warzones. The big guys, carrying the big guns. We're interested in how you can convey their personality through no more than a torso, shoulders and head. Show the awesomeness of their experience, maybe sculpt in some added appendages ( bionic eyes, iron muscles bulging through the skin ), some scars from a lucky bullet that somehow managed to scratch him.

The supersoldier is the guy that tells the rest of the army to take five and watch some fireworks. It's easy to sculpt a mean soldier, but it takes skill to sculpt a super soldier and convey all his traits, personality and experience into the final entry.

As before, we're giving you the option of having eyes, there's a separate .obj file provided or you can add eyes yourself as sub-tools (or software equivalent) but you have to pick one or the other of these options, not both. The race of your character must be human. No aliens or other creatures this time.

I'm gonna go pick up my rifle and stimpacks...

Hmmm. Must it be a self-invented supersoldier? Or can it be Rambo or such? Just so we don't misunderstand How about the race. Must it be human?
I'm new here, but thinking of joining

Not necessarily.You can make Rambo or Terminator,but just keep in mind that people who are going to vote, will look not only at how good the sculpt is executed but also at how original it is
As for race,I guess it would be better if we stick with humans.
