Horror Challenge - Undead King

For this challenge I chose to do an Undead King.
This is a concept I sketched as a reference.

Here’s a WIP of what I have so far.

Some more work on the armor. Next step is probably retopologizing everything for some cleaner geometry.


Retopologized the armor and clothing. But my retopo addon for Blender stopped working so I didn’t get to do the face or body. still not sure what I’m going to do about the arms retopology-wise but I’ll figure it out.

1st test render. no textures yet just some basic materials. still need to do the retopo for the body, but going good so far…

another test render (still no textures) probably nothing noticeable. I finished all the retopo and most of the UV’s so I can move onto detailing the armor, skin, and clothes. I also wanted to add some ornamental designs on the armor because it looks pretty bland.

About an hour into the skin textures. just getting started with a base. trying to make that “deadly skin” look. something I’ve never done before.


Finally got some base textures on everything and added more details. Going to be posing soon.


This is looking TIGHT! There’s 5 days left of the challenge now, really hoping to see this as part of the final lineup in the final submissions thread :smiley:

here’s a current test render with a stupid simple pose and ground. still lots of work to do fixing up the pose, the rig I used didn’t have any fingers so Imma have to pose those by hand. any feedback is appreciated as always.
