    Default ZBrush Interview: Deus Ex Human Revolution

    Banner.jpg




    One of the oldest and most respected franchises in the gaming world, Deus Ex has long been awaiting a third installment. It's here at last! Released on August 23, 2011 "Deus Ex: Human Revolution" has already garnered terrific praise from critics and even higher accolades from gamers. As an example, IGN gave the game a score of 9.0 which they classify as "amazing". The player reviews on the same site give it a solid 10.

    On an artistic front, the game has a very distinctive look that manages to be both realistic and stylized. It is a beautiful game with clever details everywhere you look. What's more, since the story focuses on human augmentation (bionics) moving into the mainstream, the art team had to blend man with machine. It had to look high tech, yet because this story is actually a prequel to the previous games it also had to look more primitive than what has been seen in the past.

    For this interview, we spoke with Sébastien Legrain -- known here at ZBC as sebcesoir. He's been an avid ZBrush user for a long time now and many of you will no doubt remember his The RiSiNG thread or phenomenal Projection Master tutorial. Always willing to share with the community, he was more than happy to talk about his team's techniques as they tackled Deus Ex.

    We hope you enjoy the interview!







    Here's a sampler of the many images that you'll find. You can view them in high resolution from the interview pages.

    Most of time just 1 finger is made, or objects are kept in multiples parts for baking purpouse.

    Love the game, especially the style, themes and art direction. Truly an artistic masterpiece! Well done to all the artists of this game who made the visuals and style live up to its name! I'm starting to have suspicions that the artists are augmented or something, coz these skills are 'more than human'. :P (excuse the lame joke :P)


    Yeah why isn't this top row anymore, that makes no sense lol!

    should've known seb's hard edge work was on display in this game have been playing it as often as possible since last week and i don't care if people want to bemoan any of the gfx in game or the animations... the game is beautiful and as fully realized and made to feel like the design philosophy was cohesive throughout as is possible.


    if you havent played it yet give it a try.. it's a beautifully wonderfully hard hard game at times.. in such a good way




    AND DAMN YOU SEB!!! you had to go and mention someone working on thief! first you bring back deus ex and then you mention new thief in works.. are you trying to ruin any free time i have by giving me extremely great games!
