Hey all, here’s a small snippet of pieces that I worked on for Uncharted 4. A big shout out goes to all departments from concept, rigging, animation, shading, programming, lighting, Sony San Diego, and all of our outsource studios.
There are so many small hands that need to be in place for everything to come together at the end, so I tried to grab assets that were primarily created by myself.

Some really gorgeous work! Top notch. Top row. :+1:

Uncharted 4 is a masterpiece work of art. A 10/10 game as far as I’m concerned, and easily the best in the series.

And these character designs are absolutely phenomenal… so lifelike. You can tell the artist(s) who worked on them is passionate about the work. Great stuff :+1:

Now if only there were people of your caliber working on other favorites of mine, like the new SF series, haha. But, on a more serious point, kudos to everyone involved in this fantastic, fantastic game.

Cannot say enough.

Hello folks,

I’m glad to introduce our character works for Uncharted 4. It was great time to work with amazingly talented naughty dogs.
All images here belong to everyone who had involved to make a good character.
It means… even you, a fan of Uncharted, have been cheering us up to get this result.
Thank you as always! :slight_smile:

Great art. Great team. Congratulations on all the awesome work!

Hey guys.
I’m Glauco Longhi. I had the pleasure to work on Uncharted 4 among uber talented artists.
It was such an amazing project to work on!
Here’s some of the stuff I did. Like Adam mentioned, it was all team work, but these are the characters I was responsible of.
Thanks to all the Dogs, and also all the outsource teams that helped us out during the whole production!
