It was a pleasure to take part in creation of that game. We were asked to create pre-rendered game sprites: 3 Main characters, Scooters, various Environment Props and some misc elements. In final we have created more than 150 pre-rendered sprite sequences and around 16 unique animations.
We have started our work for Razor’s “Ultra Pro Rider” game with rough character concepts and test 3D character:
3 characters were chosen from over 20 variants by Razor’s producer.
We have provided slightly developed illustrations of couple of game characters for modeling and other purposes:
It was time to do 3D sculpting, modeling and texturing for main characters and some props:
Meanwhile our 2D artists did some graffiti to decorate environment:
To handle big amount of pre-rendered sprites that were sharing same 3D rig and animations we have built pretty interesting and effective work-flow It allowed to save a lot of time and costs using animation re-projection and clever layer management. This way it was possible to re-use animation of one scooter rider on second character with minimal polishing.
As we mentioned it before, in final there was around 16 approved animations multiplied by 3 characters and 3 different scooters.
