Templar by Shinybinary Templar by Shinybinary
Another Warhammer 40k inspired picture and my first use of Zbrush and making UV maps for anything more complex than a box. Quite a learning experience!

The original was produced at a pretty large size so there are some close up shots here:

I'm also quite fond of a black and white version, more like a traditional 40k illustration. Somehow b&w looks much more dramatic: [link]

fantastic render and quality!
I agree black and white version of this has a stronger look but it's because your greyscale threshold levels are amazing :D

I agree, the B&W is more dramatic. Not a drawer/painter, so....

I think the eye color/shade in the colored version is dragging it down and the only thing that was off for my eye in the B&W was the shading/darkness around the back (right) shoulder, I know it has to be highlighted, but maybe a bit much?
