For the fifth year in a row we were asked by Microsoft-Rare Studios to create two new characters, brother and sister Demarco and Lesedi, for their ever popular game Sea of Thieves. We were given artwork of both characters and had to create life-size versions. Because neither character had ever been rendered in a 3-D form it was down to us to translate the 2-D drawings in to their 3-D full size selves. We were given only a front and back view of each of the characters, which makes the task of creating a life-size 3-D sculpture slightly more complex, but as we specialise in creating 3-D versions of characters from mere concepts to basic sketches to full 3-D computer artwork, this job was no more daunting than any of the many others we have worked on for Microsoft-Rare.
What our client said about our work:
Wow…It’s not an easy task working from a 2d character and Lesedi needed that extra push, but these look awesome! Great work Spur team! Can’t wait to see Lesedi with her finishing touches now! Peter Hentze Brand & Licensing Art Director Microsoft Rare.
Honestly, these are genuinely stunning. Cannot wait to see them in person. Adam Park Senior Brand and Licensing Producer.
