Reference images of Obo-San character from comic "The Path." Art by Bart Sears.
Obo-San with battle gear. 2004. Maya.
I'd long enjoyed "The Path" and when I had some spare time to try out some modeling in Maya, I took some images of the main monk character in his armor and built him. The original idea was to make two other soldiers that he would fight in a short film, but my time was cut short before it came to rigging.
