This is my tribute to The Saga of The Meta-Barons.
Is made in Zbrush for modelling, texturing and render, Photoshop for compositing and retouches.
I hope you like it!
I saw and voted on this one on the It's Art Gallery Great piece!
I've never seen anyone make a 3d render of Metabarons before, let alone at this level. It's very novel (I mean this in a good way)!
The image even has a slight comic-y feel to it. After seeing this image I can really see how a 3d animation adaption of the series would work.
Thanks for putting it up, it really made my day. Gave it 5 stars.
Edit: I checked out your website, very high quality work. I see you were also the person who did the Freeza render you posted a long time ago on this site. And you even made a Reeve Superman. Jezus, how cool is that?I'm usually not that big on fanart, but when it's this well-done, it's like a fanboy's wet dream.

Really great art!
I hope you will not treat this as an offense but as a critique! In my opinion his shoulders are not enough separated one from another which makes his head look disproportionate according to the body and large! Of course, on the other pictures after the first it is not so obvious! In other words, his chest seems to look too narrow and it stares too much! I know it is unusual and makes this work unique. After all, I think it keeps aside from the stereotype!
Keep doing art!

MidgardSerpent: Thanks a lot man! Very glad to read it. I have to admit I'm quite like Fan Art, specially from things I like. But would be really cool a Metabarons movie!! Regards!
clanlord: Thanks you ver much! To be honest I wanted to givit some comic looking as or a different looking a little bit. Bun I didn't noticy the proportions, I just looked at it and worked to me, but I saw it too much time that I may lost the fresh view to detect some things. Thanks for the advice, is usefull to have them! Regards
Geir: Thanks Geir! to he honnest I don't know who John DiFool is, I looked over the net and find he worked on the Incal, but i didn't knew him before. My refereces where this two images:
Hi man,it's very nice~I'd like to see more~
Oh my god, this is astonashing! I have been waiting for someone with bucketloads of artistic knowledge to do a tribute to these great comics. And a very worthy tribute it is! You really payed attention to the comics, I love the detailed face and you didn't forget the scar.
I have just started learning 3D myself recently so seeing work like this inspires me greatly.
(P.S. - This also made me realise that if anyone should play Nameless in a future Metabaron or Incal movie it should be Bruce Willis lol.)

This is really nice work. Also after seeing how much work it took into creating has helped me to realize 2 things.
1 - I have a new found appreciation for 3d art
2 - Its not as simple as the zbrush website makes it out to be!
Really great render btw - had to look twice to be sure it was an actual 3d model and not an actual sculpture.
Wow! So good.
wow super impressive!!!
Great CG encarnation of this great character, congratulations. I love the comics too, with the drawings of The master Juan Gimenez. I think that the final render is some weird in my opinion, i don´t know if that 70's light's look it's correct to the model. Perhaps other background would help too. Anyway, amazing work
Chek my Blog at:
that last piece is fantastic (the others are great aswell, but you captured the style of the comic in a excellent way in that one)
the metabarons saga are my favourite comics, so great to see someone doing some tribute work, i allways wondered why nobody seems to know these comics
Not familiar with the character but man... amazing stuff!
