Our DM recently told us about the Warforged race. And since I love Kobolds, of course I was going to mix these two things up!
Here is WK-014, but their fellow soldiers affectionately called them K-Bolt.
While K-Bolt never quite grasped the interest of puns, others seemed to like the nickname and they decided to keep it.
Some experiments with Blender's EEVEE engine!
The textures are from the amazing artist Makkon! (https://twitter.com/BenjaminHale7)
(11/02/2020) The method I decided to use was to use Bézier curve objects : one for the path of each strand, one for the width of the strands and one for the shape of the strands.
Next step is trying more colour palettes for the skin, hair and horns!
(08/02/2020) I reworked it a little bit, fused the head with the neck, the nose and the ears and I think that's better...? I'm not sure, I'll see where this will go!
(05/02/2020) Tried to make the face look a little bit less aggressive and sculpted the horns! I guess the neck is next.
(05/02/2020) Found out what the problem was! The scale of the base cylinder mesh was not applied and interfered with the sculpting tools, all is better now! 😃
(05/02/2020) I attempted to add the ears during this lunch break. The mesh density varies a lot and gives weird results when sculpting. I think re-making them from scratch and making sure the density stays constant is better than trying to fix this at this point.
Made with pencil and ink on paper.
First picture is the result at the exact 5 minute mark.
Second picture is the final inking at the 7-10 minute mark.
Third picture is the shadowed version at the 10-15 minute mark.
I'm open to any critique, I don't usually do portrait and POC portraits are even more rare for me so if I did anything wrong please tell me so I don't do it again !
