Artists and play testers in action!

Diego Sanchez

First, I want to dedicate this blog to an amazing artist. Diego brings all the characters in my head to life, after I gave him the story background and the features required to support their personalities. Only on rare occasions we had to adjust the output. To give an example; João Luna is a character with which we invested a lot of extra time. Posture, looks, ... and yes the armillary sphere! But pushing towards perfection with patience is really rewarding, and the end result turned out to be stunning!

I asked him to make a high speed film while realizing a character on his computer, and the following video is the result. The last basic character, Sphen Easydive comes to live from sketch to colouring.

He was pleasantly surprised when I told him that we were taking steps to have these characters sculpt into miniatures.

Ana Roman

After contacting 3D-sculptor Ana Roman, her team of studio TinyFactory was ready to give a test demo in realizing one of the toughest items, João Luna's instrument: the armillary sphere. Quickly after investigating our characters and discussing some specifics, I can say that she really blew me away with the level of detail the armillary draft was made. We are still looking at all the practicalities for casting at our manufacturer. The miniature will be cast out in different pieces. The base tripod might differ for production. For now, behold the awesomeness!
