This is a portrait I've been working on for a really long time. Its dedicated to my father who passed away 2 years ago on the 28th of August 2007. He was only 53 years old.
He was in icu for 3 months with a cyst in his brain. After surgery he was fine. But slowly slipped back into a coma state. I got to tell him I love him. Its still difficult though. Not having him around. His personality ws always happy and friendly. Anyone that met him liked him straight away.
I love you dad.
I'll continue to work on this. As I keep learning new things. I hope you like him. He was modelled in maya and sculpted in zbrush. The render was done in mental ray. Hair is shave and a haircut. No compositing work done.

Great work Brett! I'm so sorry for your loss. I still miss my Grandfather, but I know that he is in better hands now smiling down at me!

Peace my brother!

Very realistic model! I think you should continue this model and create whole model of your dad and create a favorite place of your dad and put this model right there! But it's just my opinion, whatever thanks for the really quality job. Looks awesome!
