Inspired by the design of Sachiel from Evangelion Neon Genesis I decided to do a sculpture using Z-Brush R2. My goal was to depicted what I think an (Evangelion) Angel might look like if it was closer to realism.
I added a lot more muscle definition to the character but still tried to keep the generally lanky feel Sachiel has. I positioned Sachiel in a spiritual pose, almost like a state of meditation before an attack. I also made alterations to his character by adding a bird skull instead of a mask and giving him some spinal-cord poping out his back. I also made his body more a flesh color, but i am planning on giving him some dark robes to help strengthen the likeliness towards the original character.
Here are some low quality renders from Zbrush, will be posting a HD Version soon.
