    This model was made for the character Turin Turambar in the artistic series I'm developing.

"3D Costume Concept - Turin's Dragon Helm" sculpted and shaded in Zbrush.
This model was made for the character Turin Turambar in the artistic series I'm developing. After creating a clay sculpture, and an illustrated concept of the character aesthetics, armor and clothing, I started sculpting his garments in 3D models to use for further animation. This model is called Helmet of Dor-Lómin or just Dragon Helm. It's an important asset inside J.R.R. Tolkien's books, which many other famous artists have already created different concepts of. I decided to follow the line of illustrations by Mr. Alan Lee, who previously created the art for the books, adding my interpretation and final detail. Below, the images of the process, details and concepts are shown.
Below, two illustrations of the Dragon Helm by Alan Lee on the left side.
On the right side, a quick sketch of it's design and a sculpted variation by me.
