A while back I received an interesting commission proposal. A friend from the USA asked me if I was interested in creating an Inquisitor character for him based on an illustration decorating the Inquisitor game rulebook page 72.
I decided accept the commission and started planning the process. It took me a while to get a clear picture of how I'd put pieces together, but eventually I found the path. Here's where I'm with the project at the moment...
I tried to copy the essence of the character from the illustration in to 3D as well as possible. I also made some alterntions to make him look more like my own version – or vision. This kept the task both interesting and more creative.
There were some specific request from the commissioner for the task. One of the things he really wanted to be given for the character was the skull-in-a-box, the same kind of thing that Preacher Josef is carrying with him.
I've made some small adjustments to head wiring after I took these shots, making the forehead piece a bit less bulky. The robe was harder to carry out than I first had thought, but after second go I was able to pull it off. In the end, there's very little left of the original bits and pieces used to build the character.
Now that the weather in Finland isn't "that" cold anymore, I might be able to go outside and shoot some primer over him.
