Even after 4+ years of having graduated form Gnomon, I love to go back and take more classes because the amount of knowledge and cool stuff I learn there is unmatched. That said, I just finished taking the Character Creation for Games class there with the amazing Damon Woods. This is my final project for it, and I would highly recommend that class to anyone. I learned so much and look forward to keep applying all the awesome things I got out of this class for my future work. I had the pleasure of working with Damon for over 2 years and having him as a teacher was an incredible experience. Check out his work here:
About the project:
Concept by Anton Lavrushkin
I love the movie "Reign of Fire" and when I saw this concept I knew this is what I wanted to make for the class. Visit Anton's page and read his explanation for his concept, because he expresses my exact feelings about it.
I am also a HUGE fan of Kratos from God of War so I tried to inject a little of that in there too... you can see him in the reference sheet.
I also reworked the pose at first to be able to get the camera closer to the camera (since the spear is so tall), but I also included a pose that resembles the concept.
I did take a few creative liberties compared to the concept, but just because I wanted to build such things (like the gas mask)
I hope you like it and thank you for looking!
