Hi, This I my latest work that I started about 3 1/2 months ago. This was my attempt to create a realistic portrait of the actor Idris Elba (Real name Idrissa).
A special thanks to those on CGFeedback.com who gave me comments and critiques.
Renders done in Maya with Vray, I have a lot of info on this project and I hope to create a breakdown soon.
Let me know what you think, Thanks!
A second render, portrait style, in a kind of presidential pose. Just for fun.
Thanks for the comments everybody, I'm glad you guys like it.
konkai - I'm not quite sure what your referring to when you point out the collar and beard. I guess depending on what point in time you pull reference of Idris Elba, he is clean shaven or has more facial hair than I added. I wanted to go with something in the middle and related to his look in Pacific Rim as Stacker Pentecost.
Thanks MrGuy - I don't disagree... In an attempt to do something closer to a cinematic lighting scenario I tried to go for something more dramatic as apposed to blanket-lighting it like it was a homework project. I guess these are the risk I take.
