Some updates, I added coats of mail under my armor. 

I will reshape my top helmet, the metal part to match better with my reference. I will add more details on the metal parts and I will take more time to add dust details.

And finally I will fix the little bugs : remove globby part, define better my masks, ...

Hello ! Here are some breakdowns. Everything is made on Substance Designer.

In order you can find : 

1 - Face alpha 

2 - Horn alpha 

4 - Fur alpha

5 - Scales alpha

6 - Coat of mail alpha

7 - Sand material

Update - 31 Dec 2023

I changed the face, I made it on Substance Designer. It was a big and fun challenge ! 
I added fur on the face, adjusted height on few materials, I reshaped the scales. I have some fixes to do, but I think that the "clean" version is almost done. 

Now I have to give life to the MeetMat and create a story around the character.

Some updates ! I reduced the global height. 

Made some alphas for the scales on the helmet and the back armor. Added fur on his body. Added anisotropy on the metal and now he had pants !

I had the feeling of being stuck, so I decided to start the base texture of the horns. I'm not satisfied enough , but I think I'm on a good way.

Colors are still too saturate, and the height / normal are too high, but this is a good start.

I also continued working on the global shape and I have a blocking for the face, but I will change it later !

Update - 4 Dec 2023

Some updates ! Not big ones but it allow me to have a better overview on how shapes and materials work together.

First, I'm trying to shape MeetMat. One of the most difficult part of the challenge. It will take time to do, but it allow me to have all my masks done and then the funniest part can begin ! 

Update - 23 Nov 2023

Here are some concepts !

I tried to make those concepts keeping in mind how Painter would react. I will have some adaptations to do but this would be how the armor look like globaly. 

Now it is time to make tests on Painter !
