Post news Report article RSS Feed Creature Design Diary - Crabler Enemy part. 2

Shorter post where we show the production art/ortho of the Rock Crabler.

Posted by dCepT on Jan 21st, 2013

Hey guys! Quick little update from me here. I did the polished version of the Crabler from the last post by Frits as well as the production art sheet that Hans Kristian will be working from.

As Frits showed in the last post, we'll be having multiple versions of this guy built on the same rig.
What I've done here, though, is focus on the "base" version and to give Hans Kristian everything he needs for making the sculpt, rig and texture. We try to do a more polished concept for the 3D artist so there is less guesswork when making the 3D model. The turnaround is done in lines to show the shapes easily so he can use those as support as well as the polished color version.

The design was indeed inspired by jumping spiders - the giant front eyes, cute frown and what looks like crazy eyebrows. Amazingly cute tiny creatures.

Excellent! No unnecessary parts! Immediately clear that this creature could exist.

Thank you! We try to put some thought into our creature designs, and keep the designs around their function in game. Glad it communicates like that as well!
