I'm a 3d Character artist and I'm a huge comic fan. I decided to make a couple of iconic Batman villains a few months ago using my favourite sculpting program, Zbrush.
Fortunately there's a lot of inspiration out there and as soon as I saw concepts of The Joker and The Penguin that grabbed me, I decided I was going to create them in 3d. I had already informed the artist months ago I wanted to do this but only found the time recently.
I made the Penguin first, original by Javier Burgos. I wanted to portray his apprehension a bit more forcefully so I stuck a batarang in the reflection of his monocle.
For The Joker, by creatureBox, just about everything was taken care of in the concept. I did however wanted to convey his maniacal expression from different angles and try to show just how crazy he is!
Was a lot of fun to make, Zbrush was very instrumental in the creation of these models and Keyshot was very useful for fast renders. I hope people like it.
