AR3NA redux - skin, first approach

This is a first approach with the skin surfacing. I'm using the new skin material from Modo 601 and I found it is not ready to use as expected. It's a good base to work with, but must to be adapted depending on the model you are working on [and the parameters to be tweaked are many]. Skin textures need to be improved, the model misses a normal map and the specularity has not yet been touched. Texturing with Modo and Photoshop.

AR3NA redux - anatomy of a gladiator

A funny night in zbrush reshaping the body of my Mirmillo. Just a few more touches and this task will be done.

AR3NA - redux

More than 2 years ago I build a fast promotional image with my friends for the old THR3aD project. We made a complex scene in about 3/4 days, too fast to take care of the details.

Now it's time to finish the scene and give it the right dignity it deserves. I started by revisiting the character, a Mirmillo [a type of Gladiator during the Roman Imperial age] and his anatomy. A fast rigging can make strange things on an organic model...

So, let's start with the various roles:
Guglielmo "Larsen" Rovere - hard surfaces and environment - Cinema 4D
Francesco "XATMO" Sternativo - rigging - Maya
Me - everything else - Modo, Maya, Zbrush
