Festival of Magic is an original adventure role-playing game in which the players must fight and farm their way to glory. Join Amon, a desert scavenger and his reluctant companion Gnart, as they unravel the ancient mysteries of Umbra - a world divided by light and magic. The game combines turn-based combat and farming gameplay with exploration and puzzle-packed quests. Grow spuds, tend barnacles and use your harvest as powerful ammunition and spells; load your weapons, team up your companions and get ready for an epic adventure.

Thunder is the big cat/dog like creature. He's a follower like Gnart, and will be used to buff and support Amon and other characters in the game. I've posted up some final images and the sculpting process in video format for you guys to check out!

This is Thunder, the big cat/dog like creature. He's a follower, like Gnart, and will be used to buff and support Amon and other characters as well (who will be revealed at a later time).

Concept art by the amazing Fridtjof.

I've been busy lately with converting the lovely 2D artwork here at Snowcastle games into 3D characters. I most recently finished Thunder.

I've recorded most of the sculpting process from zbrush. It was a little harder to get the right look than I imagined, but I think I got it down.

The final Sculpture looked like this.

After the sculpture was done, I did the lowpoly in Topogun, and the texture in 3D coat.
This is rendered in Marmoset for presentation purposes.

Be sure to check out the video section for a turnaround of the model.

I hope you guys like it!
