Druid

Hi!
Made this one with Blender 2.81 and a bit of 82. I wanted to try to make a layered material, like an old wood with paint over it.
Rendered with Eevee.
Hope you like it!

Was it vertex-painting ?

Thanks, Valentin!
No, it was made with texture painting. I used quad remesh to make a lower res model, baked normal map, pointiness and AO from the high poly to the low poly, and then applied the textures.

Awesome work here! BTW, did you intentionally base this off Prince Charles? I don’t mean anything derogatory by that, but I just can’t unsee it!

This is amazing. The black and white one is one hell of a portrait! Congratulations.

I just "really, really like this character." Unlike so very many ventures into this space, this fellow looks … “weathered.” Not lke something out of Lord of the Rings nor Harry Potter, but instead what an actual person who has just spent his life being a Druid – and who now idly wonders just why you’re sticking a digital camera into his face – might actually look like.

Best of all, “IMHO, every one of the various perspectives that you present of him” – at least, all of those which in some way show his face – portrays a very different and yet very compelling, dramatic, perspective.

Beautiful words! Thank you so much for sharing your profound view of the piece. I am really glad.

Thanks!
For sculpting, around 2 or 3 nights. But I kept playing around with materials during one week or maybe a bit more, I didn’t work on it everyday. I tried using 3dcoat for texturing, but after giving up, I tried to simplify things and do everything inside Blender. I was happy with the result!

NIce one! I especially like the texturing and shading. I only miss some polished stone or glossy marbels for the eyes. It probably could give the bust some life. Other than that, very cool piece of work :wink:
