Head over to CGNetworks to see a great modeling and shading tutorial by Jeff Miller. Although the tutorial doesn't get into all details it is still extremely educational and fun and shows us just how a professional like him works and produces his works of art; and art it is! Just observe the level of attention to detail and the artistic vision that has gone into this piece and you'll understand why the tutorial is so simple and easy to follow.
This is our latest Persian Warrior character in a series of four. Ghobad is the leader of the group and what he lacks in strength and brute force compared to the other warriors he makes up for it using his cunning wits and his excellent marksmanship.
I just got back from visiting the Dubai Character and Licensing fair and decided to post a mini-reportage of this fair and inform you of what’s happening here in a series of posts entitled “Dubai Character Fair” of which this is the first part.
The fair started on Tuesday 27th of October and goes on till the 29th but next year the date will be moved by a month and it will start in November. The organizers decided, and rightly so, that the show was too adjacent to other important shows like MIPCOM, which is one of the major events of the year.
Following our last post concerning the modeling of our character called Armin, this is another character from the Persian Warrior series of four characters. Kaam is a ruthless giant who is at a head and neck taller than the other warriors and brandishes a huge sword with golden engravings. He is of royal descent but has become a soldier of fortune after years and years of war and fighting.
This is a model we created for our portfolio. These were intended to be game characters but we finally decided to create full-fledged meshes for them. Armin is one of a group of four Persian warriors and friends with special skills and weapons and we hope that we can show you some animations in the near future.
This is one of the characters in a series of 4 game characters we are currently working on. The sketches and concepts were created by Faraz Shanyar.
The 3d model is being done by Bahram Najand, one of our lead modelers and is done using ZBrush 3.1 and Max 2009.
