At long last, I am wrapping up this project. I wanted to find an iconic role to use for my Max Von Sydow's likeness exercise and... why not Lor San Tekka from Star Wars The force Awakens?
A perfect role for Mr. Von Sydow's hieratic charisma.
My version of the Chain of Wisdom he wears is, well, my own interpretation of the original since I couldn't find a good reference for it.
I hope Star Wars fans won't eat my head because of that 😛
Lastly, I really have to thanks Kris Costa's efforts he put on his classes and workshops. Great stuff, I learned a lot from him.
PS: The head is fully sculpted and textured using Zbrush (no photographs). Substance Painter has also being used to paint clothes and accessories. Hair/grooming is Xgen. Rendered using Arnold.
