This was a freelance project made for an illustration in a book series.
I was asked by Jorge Ivanovich to help him out with this medieval mongol rider. So he just needed help with only the rider itself. The horse and the human was a base geometry with basic rig for posing provided by Jorge. He only needed the armor and props model in a Ztool file.
Started with a basic human model (provided by client) with a basic rig to start posing it in Maya.
Created base meshes for armor and suit in Maya.
Created separate pieces of geometry in Maya to use as IMM in Zbrush.
High poly modeling in Zbrush.
