Over the past four and a half years I’ve been working on the same project, StarWars: The Old Republic.
Last December we have launched the game, and now I can start to show some of the stuff I made.
There’s still a lot more to come but, for now, I’ll post some of the ZBrush work.
Starting with this one, the Tauntaun.
I remember the first time I saw it on the movies, I was around 8 years old and that scene at the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back, where Luke rides the tauntaun over the frozen surface of Hoth, impressed me as no other movie scene had impressed me before. I remember thinking how awesome that creature looked, and I said to myself: “When I grow up, I want to do this!”.
When, more than two decades after that, I was told that I would be modelling the tauntaun for SWTOR, it was a lifetime accomplishment.
