Night Goblin Boss Turn-around by Dandoombuggy Night Goblin Boss Turn-around by Dandoombuggy
The Night Goblin Boss is a personal project I undertook to develop my character creation skills. Based on the Night Goblins from the Warhammer fantasy tabletop game, Its mostly been worked on over the past few months during evenings and the occasional free weekend. I'm hoping to create a little army by developing new skins but next on my list is an environment for him. It would also be awesome to create a few Squigs ;)

I was influenced by 'Warhammer online' night goblin concepts and the artwork of Adrian Smith.

He needs a name so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears :)

He's strictly a portfolio piece, although aimed toward computer games. I didn't set myself a poly or texture limit but also didn't allow myself to go too nuts.
I'll probably upload a texture sheet and wire-frame breakdown soon.

You can view more images of him, including an interactive 3D model on my Portfolio website - www.danielmccarthycgartist.com

Created using Zbrush, 3ds Max, Photoshop, ndo2 and Roadkill. Presented using the Marmoset toolbag

Total - 26,715

Goblin: 9468

Scorn Flesheater it is!  Its been a long time but I've come back to this model to try some new stuff out in Zbrush.  He's been given a new lease of life!  Hopefully I'll have a nice new render of Scorn up soon.
