I wanted to create a realistic, but heroic looking Racing Driver character. Combining hard edge elements and organic/clothing in one model. I've tried to make all the equipment and clothing as accurate as possible, but I pushed his overall proportions a little to give him a bit more of a heroic form.
All sculpted and textured in Mudbox, bar the Helmet and Hans device - which were subd modelled in Max.
I decimated the hi res meshes in Zbrush and then rendered them with VRay in Max. He's over 5 million tris in all.
