The Last Knight
Hi fellow artists!

Just finished my first character so I'm playing with some black and white renders. I stil have to create a small plateau for the turntable animation. Had a lot of problems with the hair cards, they just didn't look good so instead I used Zbrush's Fibermesh. A real shame since I wanted to only use game dev techniques and keep it fairly low poly. I only used Zremesher on the gloves since retopo on this would have stalled the process too much for me.

The rough base mesh for the head (my own) was created through photogrammetry in Photoscan and needed a lot of clean up. The base meshes for everything else were made in C4D/Zbrush just as the retopology. For the textures I used Substance Painter 2 and I rendered it out in Marmoset Toolbag 2.

Anyway, it was a great creative journey, I've discovered new workflows and learned new programs that I can use for my next projects! For future projects i'd pay more attention to details on garments. I've added lots of folds and stretching but in the end they could have been better visible.

A coloured version and the turntable along the article can be viewed at my website at:…. Hope you all like it :)

The armour was greatly influenced by the movie, The Last Knight with Clive Owen. The whole project took me about 2 months or so. (Not full time ofcourse ;) )

Programs used:
Cinema 4D
Marvelous Designer
Agisoft Photoscan
Substance Painter
Marmoset Toolbag

Knight Character WIP

Hi folks! It's been a while since I posted anything here, that doesn't mean i've not been busy :D

Adding the last detail on my character today so the next thing is doing the UV's (unfortunately in C4D which has really outdated UV tools).

The surface detail will be added once I texture this in Substance Painter. Most of the work done here was made in Cinema 4D and Zbrush.

Used Marvelous designer just for the base mesh of the pants and shirt.

For those who wonder how the head was made, this whole project started as a test to see what result I would get if I made a photoscan of my head (which was rubbish and needed a lot of cleanup) but decided on creating a whole character because seriously, who doesn't want to see himself as a movie or game character!?

The armour you see here was heavely inspired by the ones in the movie Last Knights with Clive Owen.

The project will probably be finished by end next week. There will be a detailed article on my website regarding the creative process behind this project. or check my facebook page @…

Maester of the Citadel
Do not use, alter or reupload without written permission.

This is my first attempt at a realistic character portrait made in Cinema 4D and Zbrush.

Ever since starting with 3D I always wanted to create a realistic human so I started on the creation of a Game of Thrones related project.
I chose for an older person since the theme is "Maester of the Citadel" and the more experienced Maesters should be older in my opinion.
For a detailed summary of the creative process go to:…

The intellectual property Game of Thrones belongs to HBO and George R.R. Martin.
The creation of this image is intended as fan art and portfolio material.

Programs Used:
-Cinema 4D R16 (Physical Renderer)
-Zbrush 4R6
-Photoshop CC
-Marvelous Designer 3
