just a process shot as i am preparing materials for issue 3 of ravine... as issue 2 is nearing completion, and publication announcement just around the corner
anyhow, in issue 3 some of the characters will upgrade their gear.. since...winter is coming....what? it comes in ravine too XD
its just regular length
aanyways, armor itself used to belong to an arenian general who fell in the battle for wade, and is among the massive arenian spoils of war obtained during the liberation war of wade.
arenian armors are known for the high quality tellas and are famed for their capability to retain warmth . technique of channels that arenians use is a well kept secret and hasnt been reproduces sucessfully not even by the smiths like argal brennand
now for the technical side of this, its made in zbrush , and rendered there too. topology is basically non existent since the whole thing was extruded from my basic human mesh, i dont bother myself with topology as this is merely a model for transpose purposes. face itself is a placeholder only as the final feces in the comic will be drawn... i gave up on 3d faces long ago as the expressiveness is....wonky. in my hands atleast XD. anyhow in ravine imma be using 3d for dragons, some armors and props, which should make my job easier in the long run given the scope of some of the later battles... shudder
