Platt College 3D Animation alumni and current 3D teacher, Mike Smith, has modeled this amazing 3D character called Algol. The concept is that he's a genie (Djinn). Djinn are fire spirits from Arabic mythology so he made his hands burned black and his feet and horns are made of molten brass. As he was painting the glowing tattoos he realized they looked sort of astrological or celestial so he looked up arabic star names and found one called "Algol" which means "The Ghoul."
Excellent work Mike!
