This character is done for practice in Blender. I really pushed limits of my laptop with details , model has 19,5 million vertices + hairs.
Inspiration for character came from musicians on some countryside celebration. I was impressed with these huge and strong farmers, with a lot of traces of ruff life on their skin and hands. They sang and played various music on traditional instruments: traditional folk music, rock, metal, pop… and sounded like professional musicians.
