The Mask of Wu-Man + NEW "CLASSIC" VERSION!


Edit:
NEW “CLASSIC” VERSION + MORE INVENTORY

Decided to do a fast rearrangement with the more original colors + more stuff.
Still pretty poor modeling. Mainly testing some materials (especially the one on
the cape in the background came out pretty well IMHO).
This time, I also thought Wu-Man was worthy of some HDRI…

There seems to be a bit Wu-Man-mania now, so I thought I might jump on the
wagon as well.:smiley:

Kinda needed to do something different and simpler, so did this during the friday.
I stayed as close to Sagos original design as I could. I like his approach, cause
it looks very much like other well-known superheroes. I though: “If I was to do a
movie about Wu-Man, and I had the budget of superhero movies like Spiderman,
how would I like the mask to look like?”. So went about it pretty realistically (not
completely though).

Not really an extraordinary image, but I’m pretty satisfied compared to the timeframe
I wanted to keep it in.

Hope you like it…

Cool! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v483/sago/Pics/Emoticons/big_smile.gif Love the simplicity and the mood.

Sago: Hope you don’t mind people, me included, “stealing” your design.
I’d simply just call it fan-art!:smiley:

Oh very good… really like it! :smiley:

Is the colour banding on the mask a render artifact or a material thing? Very good though, real nice ansitropic brushed base!

David: It’s an intentional material thing.

Well, I love it.

Though I have serious doubts if Wu can handle the fame…

You kidding??! Hes on a roll and nobody can stop him now! :cool:

man that is one great render

if u dont mind me asking wtf is a wu man?

You don’t know who wu man is?? The greatest superhero known to man (me). The man who gets all the ladies (sorta). He who mastered the XDUGEF(not sure about that one).

Wu man knows what santa did last christmas…

weedmonkey: Search the forums (hint: on top of that search for posts
by Sago containing “Wu-man”. Then you will find the original artwork Sago
posted + commentaries during the BWC).

Guess Wu will be coming after ya for this…heh! :smiley:

awsome model, awsome mood! nice to see a color change up too, but i’m glad you kept some orange…the true color of a super hero with tons of mojo…for the ladies…hello girls!:smiley:

maybe it would be cool to see the mojo belt in the background too, and i was thinking it would look cool and more mask like with black covering the eye opeings instead of grey?

overall, wu is great, your image is great! PROCEED!! FANART!! PROCEED!!

as far as people not knowing who super wu man is…all i can say is life as you know it has not begun…

Aquaint yourself with the legend…
click here for “The Intro” (meet the real wu…the legend…the man…the babe magnet…you knew it!)
click here for “The Game” (let your greatest dream come true…be WU-MAN!)
click here for “The Real Super Wu-Man Animation” (rated 5 stars…but i’m not bragging…)
click here for “Yet Another Super Wu-Man Animation” (rated 5 stars…but i’m not bragging…)
click here for “The Super Wu-Man Wallpaper Background” (art by Sago, Modron and AndyD)

anyone else notice Sago is the first to post, in EVERY wu-man thread…a big fan…or a big stalker??..

I’m actually quite proud… knowing that without me, there wouldn’t even be a Wu-Man… and all these great works.

Btw, you forgot these:

The very first Wu-Man images are found here:

My personal favourite

So did you get my email this time or not, Wu-Man?

No doubt the ladies will be lining up to see his genital enhancing costume…:stuck_out_tongue: haha…but I think Super Wu could be a big hit with younger audiences too.
Boring stuff like instructions on how to cross the road safely or tie your shoes could be great fun with a real live super hero showing the way…such talent in our midst going untapped…could be worth a few $ too…
Personally I am hanging out to see the Wu-man fly :eek: but after the lamp :rolleyes: I am not too sure thats a good idea :wink:

EDIT:
Did this new classic version mainly because I didn’t do my research quite good
the first time around. I’m not doing Sagos original design, as stated earlier, I’m
doing the one he did for the BWC in this thread. I like the more cool and realistic
look of it compared to the other extremely toony ones.
