3D Character Design and Game Demo


Project Synopsis

The goal of the project was to design a cast of characters and take one of them "monty" down the entire character development pipeline. The characters began as 2D concept art, and then were sculpted as 3D digital models. The Monty character was then selected to be animated, coded, and imported into video game software for the demo.
