Thorin from The Hobbit for Weta by Scott Spencer

Scott Spencer is well known for his incredible character and creature ZBrush creations. So it will come as no surprise to learn that he has recently been in New Zealand producing remarkably detailed statues for the Weta Collectibles line!

And his favorite?

“Thorin. I had a great time working on this one. It’s a challenge getting every detail down – even counting the number of plates in his sleeve armor or matching the number of plaits in a braid. Attention to details like this is all part of the process,” Spencer reveals in his ZBrush Central forum thread.
