    Sci-fi Armor Concept (video tutorial added)

    Hey there! I don't really do a lot of still renders anymore, but I thought I could give this one a go since it kinda turned out to be an interesting character to develop further.

    I was asked to come up with an image to promote the upcoming Blender Cloud HDRI library. I put together this character concept rather quickly (mostly due to kit-bashing assets from Tears of Steel for the tiny details), using one of the HDRIs as the only light source.

    Comments and suggestions are always welcome!

    Edit: Here's a 30 min video In which I explain how the image was made:

    Nice imagination for this one ! I see a hard battle with a lot of guys like this after that
    Btw, the texture looks very impressive. Well done, 5 stars for me

    You're very good, as always excellent work. A question the materials are procedural, or are painted?

    Awesome! Thanks a lot for the kind words and the feature!

    I almost forgot I made a wireframe for this:

    brus: Cheers! I actually recorded a full half an hour video walkthrough of this file, so I hope this explains how it was made. I'm going to publish it on the cloud soon, for free of course!

    pafurijaz: The materials are semi- procedual; The actual surfacing is done with image textures, but the way they're mapped is very procedual in the sense that it uses the pointiness value a lot. Most of the object actually have the same material applied. Again, the walkthrough explains that at some length.

    finalbarrage: I only use Blender. For "serious" work I would have done a UV unwrap and texture painted it, this character only uses generic metal textures and some masking tricks. Substance looks awesome, but since Blender is my fulltime job, I am using it everywhere

    Thank you all again for the comments, keep it up!

    Perhaps to grungy materials and shot feels like the subject is a doll... It does look realistic, great lighting

    This is bad-ass like something you would see in a high end game trailer like from Epic. 5 stars from me.
    I have 500 bad drawings in me before the good ones. And I have 319 to go, here they are.
