View Full Version : Yag-Kosha

Hi, guys!

I am posting the final result from a work that I had been working for a while.
His name is Yag-Kosha and it is a fantastic character that appeared in the story "The Tower of the Elephant" in the Conan book and after that in the comic book of the barbarian.
Here it is a wikipedia link where you can get more information about this amazing character if you are insterested and want to know a little more about it.


This scene that I illutrated shows the moment he just was captured and had his members broken, so he still has his healthy body but has his feet and hands broken, as well his wings.
In the story, with the time he acept his fortune in silence and resignation but now he "cryes" because he canīt reach the skies he used to fly freely.
Even today that is one of the most curious and amazing characters I have seen ever. I hope you like my version.

And here a link to a picture with a better resolution when you can see more details.

Great work MauroCor, Nothing to crit, it's all looking fine from my POV and historically it "fits" just fine in 3D/Fantasy world we are in everyday :D.

_Lewis- Thanks, Lewis! Good to know you like it!

_probiner- Hi, probiner! Lighting setup is very simple in this work. 1 area light on left (behind a window) and 1 point light on right ( an orange light simulating fire). And of course radiosity. Nothing more than this. I am glad you liked, thanks!

_vector- What a great coincidence, vector! I am sure you had a good time reading a good story like that.:thumbsup:

Hi Maurocor
How long did this take you and how did you do the pose? Are you using bones or modeling in that pose?

_Mark R- Hi, Mark! I donīt remember how much time I needed to create that one because I did it in my spare time.
About the pose, modeling is a neutral pose and then I have created a morph pose.
