spartan samurai by Zbrush-Hero spartan samurai by Zbrush-Hero
ive been waiting a long time to post this plus i spent like 3 hours this after noon to get the rendering just right

a spartan samurai based off of halo and cultures
more like a monk but his staff just happens to be a katana

i posted this because i just reached my 400th watcher

made in zbrush 4

Great design work. I like the detail and the blend of the two worlds, Halo and feudal Japan. It sort of looks like the lovechild of Master Chief and Raiden. The necklace piece reminds me of Akuma from Street Fighter. I like the added flair of the cape as well, nice touch. Makes it look as though it's a breezy day or this could just be a dramatic entrance. I'm sort of seeing wind and lightning as he descends upon his enemies, you know, in my mind's eye or whatever. Th staff/katana bit is tricky though. Most katana's don't have such long handles. That's just sort of a side note though. I look forward to seeing this colored.

22 out of 22 deviants thought this was fair.

Its has what most would say Wow. The Amount of precise and Delicate detail make this stand out among the other renders. It is a job well done though the SKULL should be more round and has a very Pac-Man Ghost Look to it. The shading is amazing and looks as if he ready to go to war at nighttime. The bag on his side should have more areas to hold onto and strap to because it looks weakly supported. Because he is a Samurai, He/She Should have more decoration on the shoulder pads and gauntlets. The Loose Straps on his/her Helmet should be more round and look more wrinkled. The necklace or whatever that is should have decorations as well. Further more, Because he is Samurai, he should have a flag with the UNSC logo or Spartan Emblem on the back of his armor, such as the Elite Honor Guards of Brute Honor Guards from Halo 2.
Well done.

Very nice detail here. One thing I'd suggest though is to push the pose more. As of now he looks a bit stiff, especially because his left arm is pretty straight. You could also tilt the shoulders a bit more since one arm is relaxed and the other is raised. Tweaks to the pose can really help to push the character. Regardless, keep up the good work.

Very nice. Would love to see a screen shot of the whole figure though. You have interesting shapes going on throughout. Have you played around with poses? Though I know it's a hassle if you're using zbrush alone.

Loving the design on this. The cross between a mech, and a japanese monk. Like to see some colors with this one.
JonimushKei Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
awessome design!, i would love to use a character like that in a videogame!
SoupyChainsaw Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
Awesome model! You've heard from plenty of people, so there's really no reason to repeat something someone has already said. However, a side note would be that the weapon in hand is classed as a polearm, more specifically a naginata. Not necessarily an on-topic technical or overall aesthetics critique, but an interesting info sort of thing.

Just seeing this model...I would love to light this inside of Maya haha

Very well done, mate.

dubskunk Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2011
The costume design is superb. The concept as well is a good way. The contrast between light and dark is spot on. If there's anything, in my opinion, to would be the stiffness in the character. Almost like a child's action figure that one bends to a pose. But that might've been something you were aiming for. All in all, it's awesome. Far better than any kind of digital work I can do...
jevanbugg Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2011  Professional General Artist
Very nice. What I enjoy most about this the most is the demonstration of detail but also staying thru to the form of the figure. I also like how you incorporated the two worlds to create a unique piece of work. I don't have anything negative to say because I am new to 3-D but overall I am very impressed.

Oh my gosh, I love it! ^-^ I have to agree with the critique posted before I got to this, the cape is probably my favorite part of the whole deviation. Either that or the overall details. Great work once again my friend :D
