Raphael by RamiRama7i Raphael by RamiRama7i
just recently I had sculpted a concept bust of Raphael from tmnt 
so I decided to step it up and create a 3D concept paint over for me to get a clear idea on how I should go about the texture 
let me know what do you think

used the following softwares to create this image:
Zbrush, Maya, rendered using Arnold, paint overs in Photoshop

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-01-06
Raphael by *RamiRamahi ( Suggested by Vir-Norin and Featured by PolyMune )
:iconfrogpointprince:
A wonderful Raphael 3d Concept Design; the follow through is very 'Raphael'-esque. The skin texture is very much reflective of a turtle's skin and the pattern and colours work very well with Raphaels personality; the only negative I would even consider to call a 'negative' would be his facial expression; although I believe the point was to go for a 'neutral' face; Raphael very rarely has such a neutral face and his neutral face seems to be more like a scowl.

The difference between the turtle skin and the mask is tremendous and you can just envision this anthromorphic turtle wearing an actual mask.

Overall this is a worthwhile texture and I'm glad I stumbled across it; especially as a die-hard life long TMNT fan!

It shows A LOT of talent and skill. It had to take a lot of vision and research to picture something as unrealistic as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle in a realistic form. But the concept isn't new, people have been making realistic versions of their favorite characters for a while. But it is truly amazing for what it is. The coloring is amazing... the mood displayed fits very well.... it is much like what you'd probably see if the ninja turtles were real. And it is really neat for fans, even people who just know about the ninja turtles, to have an idea of how the characters may look in real life. It captured the ninja turtle very well. Nicely done :D

Following my sighting of KovoWolf's feature, I'm here to tell you that this is marvelous. Great stuff with an interesting blend based on the 3D/2D tools you used to create this.
PS. a favourite for sure!

I'm not normally a huge fan of the turtles but DAMN that's impressive lol I love the lighting texture you got; makes it look like he just came out of a sewer! And the cobblestone textures of the head look pretty damn awesome. Beautiful work!

You're welcome!:) A touch of "uncanny valley" is fine, it's challenging, gives you perspective, by the way my favourite part of your pic are the eyes, they are so beautiful, they look as if he were alive :D

I love the expression, he's very cool. Plus, in terms of anatomy, the way you adapted him to a realistic design is very creative and pertinent.
I was looking for an anatomic model for a creature character project, and this nose and mouth shape is very inspiring.
I did an anatomy research based on your drawing, it's in my gallery.
It's very modified, but if that bothers you, tell me and I'll delete it.

Truly you gave him new life and even personality. He looks worn and even a little wise. Not as brash as he's so often portrayed. I'm very, impressed as many other no doubt are.
