This model was created for a facebook contest, called 3D Fan Art Challenge. The goal was to make a fighting game character. I chose Raiden, from Mortal Kombat, but I changed him a lot. I kept the color pallet and the overall desing, but I created a new look. I didn't have much time to work on his pose, so it's very simple.
This project was done within 6 weeks, in my free time. I used as reference elements from samurai armors and from Raidin, the god of thunder from japanese mythology. The sculpting was done in Zbrush, modeling in 3DS Max and the base of the cloths was created in Marveous Designer. It was rendered in Vray and the pos-production and textures were made in Photoshop.
