Software: 3ds max, Photoshop
it is a long time ago i posted some stuff from me.
as the lead character artist of settlers i was very busy. after having finished the game finally i want to share some chars i made.
a few of them are based on concepts from vance kovacs who provided us with some awesome sketches in the beginning, the others are from my ideas.
Above you see my lovely Lady Plunder - Kestrel.
inspiration was san with her mask from princess mononoke.
The knights have around 1700 tris + 1400 for their mounts.
Knight and Mount are painted together on a 1024*1024 texture page with alpha and a specular map.
for normal settlers we used up to 900 tris and a 512*512 texture page with alpha.
let me know what you think…
Lady Healing - Alandra:
Knight Trade - Elias:
Knight Song - Thordal:
