Minotaur WIP by skiv3d Minotaur WIP by skiv3d
One of my current WIP. I was inspired by Warhammer artworks of Adrian Smith and decided to do something similar.
I'm doing it in free time... still a lot of work :)
Base mesh done in Maya, some armor parts in XSI, sculpted in ZBrush.
Hope you enjoy and welcome for comments and crits.

Do you plan a low-poly version with textures? Which tools do you use?

Well, I planned a low-poly with textures from very beginning but I've been pretty busy since then, so I just left it as it is.

being an artist myself I know you will prefer some feedback to a simple blank stare and admiration shouting :P so even though I'm far from as good as you, i'm gonna try my best at picking out some things that I personally think could be an improvement :)

first off: the hoofs. I don't really know where you're going with those, but assuming you want to do bull-like hoofs (seeing as you made a bull head), I would look at some more reference; the split between the two seems a bit "I don't really know where to go with this one" (at least that's the message I'm getting when comparing them to actual real-life bull hoofs) so far I think you've done a good job, but it might be a good idea to go down a few subdivisions and get the overall shape right before you go ahead and add cracks and all that fancy stuff ^^

secondly: the belt under the head in the middle of the torso (where two belts come together in a ring) doesn't look like it's actually hanging there, or resting on the bull's torso muscles, and I think it's because the leather fabric of the support belts don't have the folds and wrinkles to put that into attention.

one more I think: the torso muscles look really flat, like he's just had them sucked empty :P he may come over more impressive and powerful with more prominent torso muscles, but that's just me ^^

anyway, that's about all I can come up with, but they're just suggestions on what I think, maybe some options to explore if you feel like it :)

overall, this is one of the more impressive sculpts i've seen since i've become interested in 3D, and i've seen quite a bit :P

Thanks for the great feedback and for the fav, Mattias!
Don't know where to start :)

When I started this model almost 3 years ago, I was just starting to learn Maya and of cause ZBrush. I was trying to do something really impressive without basic knowledge of anatomy and so on... Now I see a lot of mistakes i've done with this Minotaur and I don't think what it so impressive,.. OK, maybe just good :lol:
Anyway, I learned a lot with this model and maybe I'm just too lazy but right now I don't want to return to it. I hope someday I'll put him in a pose and give him a big axe ;)

Here you can see my WIP thread - [link] It's russian forum, sorry.

Thanks again! I'll improve next work 8-)

P.S. Sorry for my english :)
