Napoleon

Hello everybody!

This is Napoleon, one of the main characters of the amazing book Animal Farm!
I did the artwork for a online course at Unhide School, but since they gave me total freedom to create, I consider like a personal project hahaha

I used Blender to model some assets (tie, eyes, suit seams, cigar,), Grooming, and Cycles render.
Textures was made in Substance Designer, but in Cycles I did some tweaks in each one.

thank you!

Okay Yan, I was confused at first… thinking you were a student that followed along with an online course that shows how to create Napoleon… But after a couple clicks and looking at your portfolio, I quickly realized you are the real deal, and presumably unhide contracted you to make a course project…

You are supremely talented pal. Your Tin Man was actually my favorite artwork thus far that I’ve seen on blenderartists.org until now. Napoleon is absolutely astonishing. And he should be featured on the top of this site for at least a full week, imho. Bravo Yan! Yoo da man!

Wow. Awesome. And I’ve read the book, so I think he’s definitely more human than pig at the moment…

But scary at the same time.

Stnning man!

The expression of that immense puffed face is so beautiful and caught right!!!

Only thing i dont like is the eyes, they look to bright. In some shots they should be much darker. I guess your using fake emitters to lighten them up. Also they seem to be missing details.

As for the chracters, i think he’ll look tougher with a more prenounced beard or the hairs should be a bit more visible, he looks a bit clean cut now :wink:

This could be completely done in BLender. You say you made parts with Blender, but i dont see where you create the other parts?? Probably Zbrush
