Cohen the Barbarian WIP#1

Another Discworld inspired character. This is based on the art of Josh Kidby from the Discworld fable "The Last Hero". Cohen is an ancient barbarian hero who refuses to die. So far I'm just blocking things in to make sure I have the proportions right. The devil character wasn't going where I wanted so I had to cut my losses on that one.

Faust WIP#2

OK so Faust is not just another name for the devil as I had thought.
He was a fictional character in German literature who sold his soul to the devil.
Anyway this is the character as it stands now. The pose needs some tweaking
and the whole thing needs a lot of cleaning up and detailing.

Faust WIP#1

I've jumped straight back into another character.
I wanted to concentrate on learning anatomy and something more realistic and less exaggerated.
This is bascially a depiction of the biblical devil as a middle aged man, I've chosen ram horns as opposed to the more traditional goat horns just for aesthetic reasons. I've spent about 6-7 hours on this sculpt and the basemesh is taken from my earlier anatomy study and edited slightly to give better edge distribution. I'm glad that sculpt has come in handy.
So far the weak points are definetly the hands and the back musculature. It's a good challenge to do a character where the muscles are overlaid with fat.

Polly Final

I've finished working on this image
It's not perfect but I just can't spend any more time on it. I've learned a lot by making it and hopefully improved a bit as a result.
