An elder monk and leader of the monastery high in the mysterious mountains of Nepal. When will Shelby cross paths with this elder monk? Find out in the published graphic novel coming soon!
This is the first Superfly concept of the Elder Monk and his robes rendered in Poser 12. I got a little lazy and didn’t recalculate the dynamics of his robes but instead used the same calculations I had made in Poser 11. Not sure why I did that other than impatience and laziness. I did however get out the morph tool and smooth out all the rough edges of his robes that my sloppy calculations leftover. The reason the robes appear smooth is that they don’t have UV mapping (at least I don’t think they do) and they need that to use bump maps. I might have to do some quick and dirty UV mapping to get the texture I want on the robes. I’ll see about that a little later. Other than that, everything looks great. I love those robes and the character certainly looks the part.
Below you will see some of the alternate outfits and other variations of this character that will be needed for the graphic novel. In the novel, the characters change their clothes as needed like normal people rather than wearing the same outfit in every scene. Some of the following alternate outfits are finalized concepts but others I am still working on so these may be subject to change. Click an image below to zoom in.
