Tarnished metal, leather and the whole props are excellent!

Good Job! Nice to see a woman in armor that makes sense instead of a Chainmail Bikini.

Terrific job! Love the armor, congratulations!

This is truly fantastic job.
On the Artstation page, there is a clay render that shows all the little details were sculpted, including the little bumps and scratches on the plates of armor.

I wonder what’s the workflow for this? How many polygons it might need? Even if it is just a normal map on the final render, I feel like if one would try this in Blender, it would just blow up.

I built the base armor in blender, imported in zbrush and added details, bolts etc
The knight highpoly was around 80M polygons
But the most of the details I added in texturing stage, since its more flexible

Thank you for clarifying. I happen to work on a similar theme (a character in a medieval/fantasy armor) and currently it has about 8M polygons. When looking at your model I thought “Man, the level of details is incredible. I’m like order of magnitude from the resolution needed.” Turns out, the estimate was quite right. Now I just need to get 10 times better at modelling :slight_smile:

Excellent work! It doesn’t hurt that she looks like Gillian Anderson. Thanks for mentioning Hair Tool. I hadn’t heard of it and it will solve some problems for me!
