That helmet tho I think that one is spot on with kinda like a classic feel to it.

If I'm not mistaken, in the canon Samus can form the suit around her with her mind. In that case it's not necessary to make the suit industrial-looking (or the arm cannon that big) or have the paint stripes mentioned above, since Samus doesn't have to go buy parts to weld in place to upgrade anything. Also those glow plugs (bolts?) look bad, I get the blizzard look but I would change those and make them not come out of the suit like that. Something that wouldn't be necessary for someone that can form the suit around them.

I like everything EXCEPT the caution stripes on her thighs. The caution stripes look terrible. Take them off.

Remember our post about a mind-blowing render with an eye by Kris “Antropus” Costa? The artist has finally shared some WIP shots with the full face and they are something else! Portrait of Dick Smith is an outstanding work being created with the help of Arnold and ZBrush. The whole thing is handcrafted. Incredible, right? 

Here’s the progress on the portrait I’ve been working for the past two months. It’s not finished yet, missing more details on the clothes, likeness tweaks, hair adjustments etc, but I rather post it now, even if unfinished, than never post it at all. This project is serving as my workbench to test things out with Arnold 5/randomwalk SSS, so I can re-use those findings with future models.

To keep up with my progress, please follow me on Instagram.

The work is 100% handcrafted. All textures are said to be polypainted in ZBrush in HD mode, all details were hand-sculpted with ZBrush’s own alphas/brushes or the artist’s custom set of hand-sculpted alphas, later converted into brushes. 

He didn’t use any scans, commercial textures/alphas/brushes to create this portrait.
