Japanese samurai Minamoto no Yoshitsune, submission from Artstation challenge : Ancient Civilization. This one get to be one the hournorable mentions ! Took me 2 week to finish the modeling, and UV, and normal map making. Blender, marvelous and Zbrush used for modeling and sculpting, Painter and Quixel for extra detail normal map.
I followed somewhat traditional Armor layering and design, the thigh guard is usually have very bright color scheme and a ton of decoration ( the traditional shape is square and only have one layer of thigh guard), with my own tweak to better suit the overall character.
The Japanese letter mean Dragon.
P/s : big renders !
