"Bloodsport" Jean-Claude Van Damme fan art likeness
It is a fan art project, based on the 1988 American martial arts film "Bloodsport" starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
It started as a head likeness but i ended up sculpting the whole body as well as creating the set (not very detailed but enough to show as background for my shots).
Skin detail was done by hand sculpting, custom alphas and TexturingXYZ alphas. Color maps were hand painted in ZBrush polypaint.
The whole project took about 3 years to complete and 3 months to render on a Z800HP with dual 5650Xeon and 24G RAM.
I wish i could render it with a bit higher settings to avoid some noise and anti-aliasing issues but my hardware is old so i would have to render forever smiley .
It has been a very demanding project, and i learned a ton of stuff through the whole process.
I will soon post a "Making Of" with images from start to finish, timelapse videos and info.
I hope you enjoy watching this artwork as much as i did while creating it.
Thank you very much!
