This character hails from the warhammer 40,000 universe, it’s a large construct powered by the spirit of a dead alien warrior from a race of beings known as the Eldar. I chose this character because of it’s unique hard surface structure with sweeping curves, (and because I’m a fan of the Eldar and their interesting back story!)
This was done as a portfolio piece, and is the first character I’ve done using the new PBR (physically based rendering) technique. It was a bit hard to wrap my head around PBR at first but I like the results!, and intend to improve my PBR skills with future projects.
I set myself a limit of 15,000 tri, and to maintain the iconic look of the Wraithlord from table top miniature to 3D game character, but added my own flair with a custom skin based on the Biel-Tan sub-faction colors and rune.
Final renders were done with Marmoset Toolbag.
For a bit of fun, I made an illustration using the game asset to show the character in action.
