Story Teller Color pass 1

This is the first color pass on the story teller!!! Looks awesome, colored by our Art Director Pio.


Going to try some other schemes, and get a more "spirit" vibe to him, as opposed to just an old man/human vibe.


Awesome work though.

The Story Teller Design 3

This is an awesome design our Modeling Director Josh Singh did for the storyteller. I would say this is on the edge of perfect for what we want!

StoryTeller Designs

The storyteller is an ancient being that just "exists"...Somewhere between here and now, and imaginations and dreams.  When the storyteller begins to tell a story, mystic writing begins to resurrect on his mythical scrolls, and his words become real...they become legend....This is the foundation to all of the Warriors Legend stories.



StoryTeller Design #1

The design for the storyteller..an ancient being that tells all of the stories in the WARRIORS LEGEND world.

Princess Aira Char Design #1

From an ancient mystical tribe who's identity has been hidden for thousands of years, Princess Aira is more than meets the eye...

Warriors Legend Story Teller

All of our stories are told by the **un-named** story teller. He is an ancient being that awakens to tell the tales of amazing individuals throughout time. As he tells their stories, they appear upon magical scrolls, and the stories come to life.



Hiroshi's ancient Blades of "MAR"


His Blades - The legendary Blades of "MAR" The blades were forged from a mystical ancient set of wind chimes. When Hiroshi exposes the blades, the swords will "HUMMMMMM" in a soft chime reverb sound...this will always give him away should he be hiding and pull the blades out. He also uses them to scale the sides of any wall or mountain. (the ends of claw shapes on them. with a flick of the wrist the blades can slide out or in.

Hiroshi's Arm Designs



His wraps - from the ancient flag of the empire

His Dragon Shaped Birthmark - The birthmark starts off as an egg type shape..as Hiroshi unlocks more of his abilities the birthmark slowly transforms over time to eventually reveal a Dragon. The style of this will NOT be a yakuza style japanese dragon. It will be a mythical tribal style dragon that he will "unlock" pieces of as his story unfolds

Texture style test


A paint over our Toon Sushi Art Director Pio did. We are testing out how detailed we want to go with the textures. He did a straight paint over on the original proxy mesh render.

Looks sweet!!

HIROSHI'S proxy mesh!

This is Hiroshi's proxy mesh.

The proxy mesh is a representation of what the final model will end up looking like. Josh did a killer job!!! Even in this base representation, I feel like you can see the character/style take form. This will be carried through everything in the Dragon Weaver world.

The look we are going for is not a overly complicated fully rendered CG movie. Its going to have an almost "theatrical/play" type of vibe.

THERE ARE NO TEXTURES on this base mesh. Just flat colors, and some smoothing groups to break up the parts.
