moving to a more value studied level render, added the hat back in due to feedback, made it in marvelous because of course I did. few more details to add in, particularly the stitching for the tricorn, home stretch for this leg, Ill be doing my best of a half decent pose of the guy for my final turn in. here is hoping it doesnt go to crap on me. the goal had been a game res character and that will be the end all be all goal, but its not realistic of me to expect that in the few days remaining, and quality tends to go out the window when the timescale gets crunched that hard. My contest submission will be a clay render I think, low as I can get it and baked, but certainly not game res. next few days will tell.
latest render and value study below.
