Razoch, a Technomage, in his final glory

Pavel explains how he created his Technomage, Razoch


Introduction

Hi! My name is Pavel and some may know me as GoodAtom. I live in Moscow, Russia and I work as a freelancer. In this article I will tell you about my method of creating this character, who was created for a mini challenge on Pre Dominance War V. I will take you through the steps from sketching, to ZBrush and onto Maya, before outlining my final touch-ups in Photoshop.

Sketching

Now I'll tell you more in detail. The sketches I like to draw on paper. It is not so much fun drawing straight into Photoshop. I like to draw my sketches on paper using a matte brown pencil. Before the creation of any character, I draw sketches, and I always start drawing with very small images. It takes about 2 or 3 minutes for one little sketch.

At this stage of drawing I don't pay attention to details and proportions


I drew the first things that came to mind and then I choose the best idea. In my head, some interesting ideas would have started to arise, at which time I started drawing sketches in bigger size.

The first character was a man with a futuristic helmet on his head and armored like a gladiator. The idea was based on a parallel universe where gladiators were still fighting in the present day. In this universe, it was possible to use the mechanisms functioning on steam or magic.
