It's been too long since I've posted a personal piece! I'm a bona fide blender convert now and decided for my latest image to push the app as hard as I could (while still learning most of its features). And with "Taken" looping on FX so much these last few weeks, who better to portray than Liam Neeson?
The image was created entirely in blender (aside from a little PS use for textures); modeling, sculpting, texture painting, hair, rendering, and compositing. Without having to jump to zbrush or mudbox to sculpt, I could simply render the highest resolution of my sculpted model - such a nice alternative to baking maps! Of course it's not a photo but I couldn't be happier with the app's capabilities. Check out the BlenderArtists.org Thread (link below).
