Video Game Superstar Challenge - TRHALL
Hello Andrea! First of all I wanted to say that your render, and amount of work you put into it is just awesome! Keep it up!
I find your model pretty nice. Textures and lookdev of the character has some strong points. I will comment it if I may.
Do you think you are still able to change the color pallet a bit? There are few strong points in the composition you have, but I feel like those hard red contrasts are distracting my eye just a little bit. I was following your whole WIP and the process you went in modeling, and I just feel like the character deserves more respect and different camera angle. He looks like a warrior, maybe it would be a good idea to give him a bit of that feeling? How to say good story with an image... maybe by adding a bit of his opponents trophy? Making his axe dirtier, maybe some blood? Give his armor a purpose. We can also see that his clothes are moving, maybe we could give a little bit of motion to levitatings rocks also, by adding just a touch of motion blur. I dont know, im just asking myself how we can make it better 🙂 Dont get me wrong, I think you made an awesome work!
first of all thanks for appriciate the log work bihind, all comment are welcome.
If you aske me if I completly satified of yhe job, I had to say NO, as always, I always not satisfyed of the final image because I always want to give more detail, more changes on camera position texture adjustment, but.....the deadline is the deadline, whether it's work or competition, at the end you have to take a decision and say STOP like this.
I agree to some part of your point, about the red point on the image, I would like to follow the original color of some part and this one was red ( I desaturated but probably still so mutch again)
Thrall is not a warrior, is a SHAMAN a potent shaman, and expecially this is some of the last version of the character , a mature edge, and he control the element and defeet his enemy by his power not by splatting the head with the "Hammer" (please is not an AXE :P).
About the clothes you have right, I would like to give it some movement following the hair, but unfortunatly I had no time to realize it...maibe will be an Update in future.
the Camera position is one of the 13 that I have tried....maibe if I tried other 13 time I will found the perfect one, but time is time 🙂
The motion blur on the ronck is not what I have in mind... cose in the moment I imagine Thrall he stop the rocks on the air (Like floating) and waiting for his command to hit the target.
Hope that I answered at all your point, thanks again for your accurate analysis of the image.
