I made a semi-realistic Darth Vader in blender

Rendered in Cycles

240k verts+

this is my 6th blender creation.

in all his glory


I want some feedbacks on it, it might not be the best but I’m workking on it.
The anatomy is a recreation of Spider-Man PS4’s body.

My most complex project yet!

I’m looking on ways to improve the cape and the materials.

His helmet is a bit to shiny to the point it looks a bit like glass, that is my only suggestion other wise it looks awesome! Also which version of blender did you use to make this, 2.79, 2.8 , 2.9, because i’m trying to learn to model but idk which one is best to use.

From a beginners standpoint, it doesn’t really matter. Most of the features that are different are much more advanced tools anyway.

Yea I agree, I’m new to blender so I’m still trying to figure things out. I used 2.83 I recommend using 2.9 if you’re starting out.

I’m scared of that face.

Thanks for giving me sleep paralysis. (joke)

Model looks great! However, I’d change the stance to something more less awkward and more interesting. Also get rid of that noise :stuck_out_tongue:

the noise kinda hides some of the clipping xD

Looks amazing! Only things I could find that were probably even supposed to happen, were the way the upper and lower arms and legs sorta look akward as they meet. I cant explain it, but again this was maybe meant to happen. Still though good job!

I love the shiny armour makes it feel way more realistic, great work man keep it up! :+1:

That’s amazing! But as Annapower_girl22 said, his helmet is too shiny. It almost looks as if its from a comic book pasted onto the photo

Looks cool! It looks like a toy lol but the helmet is waxed weekly that it shines so bright
