We’ve been working on our visual development project since we got back from winter break in January and I thought it might help if I posted some additional examples of vis dev work from a variety of artists.
We’ve spent the last few weeks very much focused on creating character designs. Character design is, for many people, the most compelling element of our visual development project. However, crafting a visible world for your characters to inhabit can greatly enhance the work you’ve done so far by giving your character designs context and greater authenticity.
