God of LEGO by xQUATROx God of LEGO by xQUATROx

This is my newest piece of work that I made for one of the assessments for my course at uni.

This is the God of Lego - Kratos :lol:

The textures were created in Adobe Illustrator and imported into Photoshop as vector smart objects, then saved as PSD's for use in MAX. At any time I can up-scale the textures if I so desire without quality loss.
The scene lighting setup is made of a backdrop, an HDR image and 3 Photometric halogen light plates with ray-traced shadows. All shaders used were arch&design ones with Ambient Occlusion enabled.

I hope you like this image.


Fun fact: It took 50h36m44s to render it on my laptop because I totally over-sampled everything. To top things up - I was mental enough to actually wait for that long :lol:

This is freaking fantastic. I would love to add a minifig like this to my collection. If I could only say one thing that kinda bothers me. Its his legs. It looks like he has on red pants. I've seen a few minifigs where they draw the shorts or dress on the minifig and on the Scottsman minifig they actually give him a kilt made of cloth. Ever considered going back and re-doing the legs to look more like his attire? As for colors and technique I believe they are spot on and pretty good. The scar over his abs would be kinda cool too lol.
What do you think?

This looks really authentic! If this hasn't been turned into a real Lego yet it definitely should be.
