This is my first 3D challenge ever and I’m looking forward to trying out the idea! I love idea of mythology as you can really mash it up with some other ideas and concepts outside of the norm,
Ive chosen the Myth of the Cyclops for my model, I threw together a quick blockout for his eye which i want to be the main feature and a reference sheet also, i will continue to add to it over the coming days and upload some new images along the way, Everything is subject to change of course but feedback is welcome!
I moved on today to start blocking in the other shapes on the head, im not 100% happy with the mouth but theirs still time to change it atleast! Im trying to go for more of a horror sort of vibe to him and have taken away his lips to help this leaving his exposed gum and teeth,
i also started experimenting with skin alphas to see how they look so they are included for now!
This is the latest image of this guy a super quick render i did in zbrush, i started adding more armor pieces to him and refining the overall look slightly,
I think im going to remove his helmet as well next and give him more of a roughed up and rugged look and re do his god awful placeholder sandals also
Imagine a brute of a cyclops trying to put on his fanciest sandals !
so this is my final post with the final renders also, This was a demanding challenge for me to do as its my first one and i tired to put as much into it as possible, if i had more time left i would go back and tweek a few things as their some things that are standing out to me, but as it is im happy with the results,
Im going to leave a link to my artstation also because ill be uploading more high res versions their soon that will be redone slightly also!
