Vikings

Vikings

As a Dane I have always been fascinated by vikings and Norse mythology. The tales of the Nordic gods that we were taught in school always stayed with me. With this character I tried to create a somewhat realistic viking warrior with a touch of creative freedom. Everything modelled from scratch in 3ds Max, ZBrush and Marvelous Designer, textured with Substance Painter and rendered with Octane Render 2.

I call the sword Surtr after the fire giant from Muspelheim, his name carved in runes into the blade. The axe is named Fenris with it's wolf's head ornament.

The ornaments were generally created by first painting them as alpha maps in Photoshop and then aligned with UV coordinates and extracted in zBrush.
