Crysis 3

Well I guess its long enough after the dust has settled from Crysis 3 that I feel comfortable releasing some screenshots of some of the work I did.
On this project I was in charge of a couple of the levels in multiplayer & had ownership of the environmental weapons & gamemode props.
I worked closely with an artist called Bart Januszkiewicz on both Chinatown and Penn Depot during the main game & then went on to lead a smaller art team in the dlc which consisted of 4 maps we made echoing the Crysis 1 island style.
We remade pretty much everything from Crysis 1 so we could achieve a resolution of 512 ppm, but only had a 3 month dev time to do this.
My level was the one with the Beach ;)


Penn Depot was very much a cannibalisation of a single player level so much of the interior was just re-dressed & some texture changes were made. The trains were remade & the exterior was created especially for mulitplayer & the level was re-lit. Much of the work went into getting the level to the required 30 fps across all platforms.

Here is the Hunter introduction that I created with Paul Haynes one of our talented designers. I made the interior of the VTOL the rest was smoke and mirrors & flowgraph ;)

The weapons in Crysuis 3 were made by Gregor Kopka, but I was required to make some pre order weapons skins for MP.

Below is a series of screenshots I created for the dlc release. All were posed using flowgraph in Cryengine 3.

Anyway I hope you like some of it if not all. I had a truely brilliant time working on this game & it was a real privilage to have done so. Special thanks to the entire dev team who are some of the best in the industry x

Robot Head

Just some fiddling this weekend. All shots are grabbed direct from the viewport.
I'll get round to throwing it in vray at some point.

Robot Revivial

Yes it's been entirely too long since I did any work on my mech but art production on Crysis 3 has taken a heavy toll on my spare time but now that its just about wrapped up I am going to start putting more time into my home work until its finished, or I get absorbed into Homefront or something else.
All colours at the moment are just working defaults so they stand to change at any time.
I was thinking about some seriously bright colours and decal advertisements on the body parts and components, but that will come at the end.
For now I concentrating on getting the style right on the helmet and then the main body needs the lines re-working. I feel that currently there are still proportion issues, especially with the head in comparison to the body, but I'm happier now with the overall stance of the mech.
Still lots to consider but I thought I'd upload a few grabs from the viewport. I'm not going to attempt to render anything as I think  my machine is in danger of melting now. Its 1.3 million polys unsmoothed now :/

New Years resolution......a new rig & this finished asap!

Happy New Year friends :)

Mecha W.I.P

Quite early days at the moment, but I've managed a block out of this robot after reading through Kallamity's ABAKAN 2288. Some wonderful ideas in there and I wanted to try out one of my own :)

More progress to follow

BC Rich Warlock progress

A little more progress this weekend, not really had time to get it finished, but I sorted out the head stock & added the wood materials (which need a lot of tweaks).
I just have a few more parts to add & then I'll string this beauty....maybe in time for christmas ;)
Stay metal.

BC Rich Warlock

So after a short break I decided to start something new & wanted to model something that wouldn't take an age to complete.
I took a glance across my study & took my rather gorgeous Warlock off the wall & started modeling its metal curves.
Certainly helps with the reference ;)

I'm about 6 hours in & I really only have a few of the minor details left :D Win.
I'll update once I get some shiney vray renders.

So this is the start of a piece I'm doing for my dining room.
This will be the first piece of commissioned art for my house so I'm going to try to make a good job of it.
Eventually it will be a series of images telling a story, but for now here is the start of the bear.
I hope to keep it fairly stylized.

Night Sight Complete.....

A few more bits done. The night optical sight is complete, just the sight attachments to be fitted to the back. I also finished the loops on the top box.
Not far to go now, then on to textures! :D
