Everything the light touches by AEmiliusLives Everything the light touches by AEmiliusLives
My 3D sculpture of Mufasa, from Disney's "The Lion King". It wasn't in my plans to finish this guy so soon, but since I just realized February is ending, I went and finished him the best I could, so my February slate won't be empty :P Probably I'll do something else with him and will give him a body and a better finishing in the future too :P but this'll have to do for now.

As usual, this was made in Sculptris ➤ zBrush ➤ Keyshot ➤ Photoshop.

Thank you, the lighting is always a pain but I'm happy with this soft, diffuse one :P And thanks for the :+fav:s!

I'm glad you decided to post it! And I like the lighting you went with for it too. It's one of my favorite parts of the movie and your title is perfect. :D

Thank you very much! :thanks: The model itself has met some criticism, I ended up having to fix a few things since some people indeed thought (as I feared) he wasn't "Mufasa enough" :( I don't know if you got to see the old one or the updated version, since I reuploaded it last night. I was not 100% happy with it, but I was somewhat satisfied. I was also kinda proud that I made my own little arrangement/loop of "This land"Music  for the turntable and the youtube video for the first time.

Hmm...I think he looks too much like Scar in there...the eyes are Scar's, not his, for example, as well as some other faceial structures.
Mufasa has a broad face with a large nose and muzzle, small eyes...
At first I thought it could be their father.

I tried smaller eyes and it didn't really work, so I had to go back to a previous model. He does have a wider face, nose and square chin. It's the best I could do, I considered turning it into adult Simba, in case I couldn't really make it look like Mufasa. But in the end I considered it was good enough and kept it like this. If anything, it kinda looks like the "Kingdom Hearts" Mufasa. If you look at my other sculptures you'll see I never make them identical to the drawn characters, there are things that simply defy logic, aren't even drawn the same throughout the movie, and really don't work in 3D.
