2010; a more recent project from art college. Our assignment was to create our own character and environment concepts of The Myth of the Minotaur from Greek mythology, except we had to make the story take place in the future.
This is my version of Asterion, the Minotaur character from the story.

Technically very well done !
The shoulder plates look good, although they just seem to lay on there, not beeing fixed somehow.

A point of crit I see would be his anatomy / the layout.
To me the beats looks as if it would fall over.

Nice! It has one of those rare things...correct anatomy throughout. And a personality :D

Great job, very impressive.

Hey man. This is amazing. The way you put the entire piece together changes the way I think of art. Great work! Might I ask you... I am in charge of a professional game development team of 25, who are currently developing a 3D MMO. We work for free in our free time and are hoping to release the game as of 2012. I am proposing that you join our team and help make it even better then ever!

For more information please contact me at m.meyer@vxtream.com.

Kind Regards,

This is great. Far more bestial than most minotaurs. :nod:

The pose is so fierce. It seems as if he could tear my head off without that staff of his. There is SO much detail as well Nice used of warm and cool colors to attract the attention to the figure. Just simply amazing. Can I ask how long this took?

ah, the minotaur always was one of my favorite mythological characters in greek or general mythology. thanks for showing this guy some love. :heart:

the amount of detail in the fur is amazing, and the lighting is very nice. my favorite parts of this guy would probably have to be the set of horns, claws and shoulder pads you gave him. very unique. :)

Sooo...if it's the future, does his staff shoot lasers or something? Is his kilt a personal levitation device? Are there mini rocket launchers concealed in the shoulder pad? Tell us! DX
