    Default Kaiser Wilhelm II

    Hi all.

    Something from last year that I still need to finish. I just made this render few nights ago. It's more for test.

    I have to finish model + render later. Mustache need to be completly remodeled, this was one I made just while I was working on "likeness", hair too. And about render I need to work on texture more etc. Hope you like it for now.

    ZBrush, 3Ds Max + Vray, Photoshop. I hope I will find time to finish this



    This is his age I was aiming for

    IMO There's too many cracks in the marble (texture). I feel like it kind of takes away from the smooth marble look.

    It's also a little bit odd in some places, mainly the mouth and mustache area. It kind of detracts from the shape of the lips and mustache making it a little more difficult to visualize the shape of the mustache.

    It's also a little bit off that the rope-like items and medals (don't know what they're actually called) on his shoulders and chest are a little bit too detailed. It kind of takes away from the sculptured marble look. If you compare those with the hair and mustache you'll see that the hair and mustache look like they were carved out of marble. The medals and rope things look a little too fine in the details. I also like the arm on the right in the way that it looks like it's one piece of marble with the way it blends into the base. However the waist area and most of the other arm look more disconnected as if they were separate pieces of marble.

    So I would remove most of the cracks in the texture to maintain the smoother look of marble. Smooth out some of the details of the medals to look more like sculpted marble as well as blend the rope like parts to the body and the body to the base to make it all look like one piece of marble.

    Other than that I think it looks great. That's just my opinion though.
