The Legend of Ram - Hanuman

Second in the series that I've been wanting to do on the Ramayan, Hanuman is finally completed. This started off as me wanting to do just the sculpt, but ended up as an illustration that I'm quite happy with:)
For those uninitiated, Hanuman is the monkey god of strength who is a great devotee of Lord Ram and proved to be a huge advantage in Ram's war against Ravan.
This was also an attempt to work on an illustration that wasnt aggressive as are all my previous stuff. I wanted to capture a very calm and peaceful mood with this one, without losing out on the character's personality.
Base model in maya, detailed in zbrush, rendered in max/mental ray. Post in photoshop.
More images on my website!

Mangesh said...

hi vivek really awesome work specially Lord Ram and Lord Hanuman... how ever your model for Lord Hanuman is mixture of gorilla and black face monkey because Lord Hanuman is half monkey and half human so why dont you you try that kind of model it just a suggestion from my end because if you can do wonders with Lord Ramas Model you can do much better with the Lord Hanuman because you have Two diffrent personalities to play with like your Crocodile-man .
