Nucky Thompson

Nucky Thompson Medium

Enoch Malachi “Nucky” Thompson is a character from the show Boardwalk Empire played by Steve Buscemi. For this game character I sculpted pretty much everything in ZBrush and then stuck it in Marmoset Toolbag 2 for real-time rendering. The likeness of Steve’s face was a huge┬áchallenge and I still feel like I’m stuck in some sort of an uncanny valley. Overall a fun project though I really enjoyed the process of recreating an existing person and trying to get as close as possible.
