Super Emit Post 05.

I have a lot of lighting passes that I'm going to play with to make the different materials look more realistic. I just dropped a dirty texture over the whole thing to give you the feel I'm looking for. Maybe I'll get this done tomorrow. :)

Grandpa Sculpt Post 12.

Super Emit Post 01.

I want to create model that shows how I think my son imagines himself while playing super heroes. He often acts like he has the abilities of several super heroes all at once. He specifically likes Superman, Batman and Iron man the most. I'm starting with his head.

Grandpa Sculpt Post 10.

It's funny that my last post of Grandpa's Sculpt would end on 10.  I couldn't afford to make a real bronze out of it so I painted it instead.  Someday I would like to get copies made and give them to my family.  For now it will just have to set on my bookshelf.

This is just some photoshop work to see how I want to paint it. I always envisioned a bronzed look with a steal color.
