I had the pleasure to work on the really cool fighting game for Kinect "Power-Up Heroes".
We had to create Super Hero characters that would fit with the Microsoft Avatar constraints and still look really cool.
It was a great experience and gave me a chance to be really creative.
I was given the approval to show some of the work I did.
The first one is the Lava female character. The male was already done so the goal was to try and create a more feminine version of the same concept but keeping the lava aggressive style.
The second one, the cybernetic guy was a great challenge since we never got a final concept for it. I used polypaint to draw patterns on the body until we found a armor design that would work (his back and arms open to release miniguns and rocket launchers). It was great to conceptualize directly in 3D and be able to see it come to live.
We had about 2 weeks to get each one done so there wasn't much room for re-design.
Finally a prop I did for the Shaman character!
I'll see if I can grab the other character artist's work in here since there are some really impressive sculpts done for that game!
