I was asked to make a mascot character for a new film company. Something to play at the begining and end of their films and projects. I was given free reign to concept something on my own. So instead of working from sketches or notes I just dove right into ZBrush and started mocking something up.
Unfortunately the company changed hands and the request was dropped, so the character was never finished.
I decided to revisit him as a fun personal project. Primarily just a fun character to experiment on. Sculpted in ZBrush and Maya, rendered with Arnold.
Here are some closeups of his vest.

Props. He will ultimately have a vest, sunglasses, and holsters for multiple hand guns.
