ZBrush User Stories: Dragon Age 2

Share

110308-dragon-age-2

Six months ago we did an interview with the wizards at BioWare for the critically-acclaimed game, Dragon Age: Origins. It got rave responses from the community, so we knew then and there that we wanted to do a new one when Dragon Age 2 released!

Today’s interview is a first for ZBrushCentral. Rather than talking about a title that came out a few weeks or months earlier, we have coordinated behind the scenes with the good folks at BioWare and EA to release this interview on the same day that the game premieres!

Just because the game is brand new doesn’t mean that little is known about it. We’ve known for quite a while that the sequel planned to go in new directions with the art. In fact, today’s overall game review at The Escapist made a point of talking about how much better everything looks in the sequel. (They also gave the game a perfect score.) Now at last the art team is able to go into greater detail, sharing some ZBrush screens and a few surprises.

Please join us in welcoming Shane Hawco and the rest of his team back to ZBrushCentral! We hope that you enjoy reading the interview as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together!

ZBC member CastorPt, Luis Antonio, shows off some great character portraits in his Top Row thread this week. His nervous alien interview subject, shown with different variations in expression, is an excellent example of great texturing and rendering. Check it out!
