Made this guy as the first in a new series of 28mm figures for use in table top war gaming or just to paint for fun. They will be 3D printed in high definition plastic and will be available to order. I'm aiming to create one miniature per week at least until January 2017.
These miniatures should fit nicely in scale with Games Workshop style minis.
Didn't have much of a back story on this guy and just sort of went with it and He gave me the sense of being some king of mercenary or space pirate if you want. In any case I plan to do more in terms of conceptualization on the next one starting from thumbnails onward.
Personal project for an upcoming Zbrush tutorial on my Gumroad page. Its an upcoming SMG (Sub-Machine gun) by the company LWRC International.
During this time the gun was in the prototype phase so most likely it will change a bit. I felt it had a really cool design and I made it using mostly Zmodeller to create the base mesh and Dyanamesh to refine and add details.
I will be creating a course on this process which was inspired by the work Redstorm Entertainment (A subsidiary of Ubisoft) created for "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier" and "Tom Clancy's:The Division". They use Zbrush for their weapon modelling.
