MORNING RETURN - part I-

Hi everyone.

An army of templar knight returning at the first light of dawn in their commandery.
they are greated by the Master of the Temple and the Senechal who is also the weilder and keeper of the Commandery sword (yeah, the big one).

here is a little project that I used to learn Blender.
It's a project were I have 10 images but I decided to switch it in half to be more easy to tackle
(here is part 1 obvisouly, in part II, the army are passing the gates :D).

Used the medieval kit from Jama and Oleg Zherebin for the templars but changed a lot of things.
At first I used them as an exercice to learn the soft, the lighting process, the composition and, more and more I was deep into it I wanted to push further some parts.
so I changed diffuses, normals, roughness, you name it.
Also modelled some assets and changed some topology from the existing templar mesh to fit my purpose
...for exemple I totally changed the face of the guy with the swords commandery, remeshed it to be able to pose it, ect ect.

It was a fun project, really liked working on this during my spare hours.

Now, let's go to finish part II.
