I am helping the students making "The Resistance" http://polycount.com/discussion/comment/2624339#Comment_2624339 with a couple of characters. I created this guard, the lord and the noble. I spend around a week in days on making the guard, and an additional day on changing him into the lord. The noble was also fully done in a couple of days
The total tri-count around 20.000 on all of them with two PBR materials, one for the face, one for the cloth/armour for the guard and lord. The noble was also around 20k tris, with 3 PBR materials; skin, hair and cloth.
