Super Villain_Lord Voldemort

It isn't a marvel/ DC Comics character but hey he is pretty evil in my book.
I haven't done anything yet since i just saw Mike stretched the rules a bit.(thanks Mike)

I don't think that i have to write a backstory for this character

More to come

Thanks guys

Did you work on the actual movie Hammer? or was it part of a course which could use the stock material?


Anywho, i just started roughing out the shape, there isn't much detail in it yet, and the eye is a place holder.

My aim is not so much as trying to model Ralph fiennes (not that i can't) but i try to make him according to the description in the book;
.... having very pale skin, a chalk-white, skull-like face, snake-like slits for nostrils, red eyes and cat-like slits for pupils, a skeletally thin body and long, thin hands with unnaturally long fingers.[17] As mentioned in the first chapter of the seventh book, he also has no lips.....

But if i don't like the way he looks by then i will go for the ralph fiennes look

thanks guys

I've been fiddling in ZBrush some more to get a bit of a feel for color and looks i made the skull more snakelike but am not entirely sure if i will do this or the Ralph fiennes look(a bit of a dillema between wanting to make something reall or letting the creative juices flow)

Let them juices flow mate! Looking really good

I would probably go down 2 routes, keep the model as it is and do one thats mad and one based on the actual voldermort

Hi anasasis,you are right about the ribs i was just fiddling with zbrush to get a form.

I have redone his head and fiddled with some color in ZBrush.
I think it looks a bit more proportionate than the previous ones.
I will start with his hands and feet next, then finish up the robes
