About this Project

This model is a bust of Ludwig the second of Bavaria, also known as “The Mad Monarch” (or the Swan King, if you’re feeling fancy). He ruled Bavaria from 1864 until his mysterious death (possibly probably murder) in 1886. Everything about him was mysterious really, he built multiple grandiose castles and sought refuge in excessive opulence. I sculpted the bust in Zbrush, made the LowPoly Mesh in 3ds-Max, textured the model in Substance Designer and created this showcase scene in the new Unreal 4 engine. The mesh is intended to have a high fidelity look and is just south of 5000 triangles.
