Monster Revised (Leviathan Game)

scorpian monster with claws and death

Update: After inserting the monster into the game, he was a bit too hard to see, so I went back to his purple coloring.

I have revised the monster a third time. When inserting the monster into the game, the bright colors didn’t match the atmosphere of the game. I added some more clamps and gave him a poisonous stinger. This is the benefit of modular design. It took only an hour and a half to implement these changes. The only disadvantage of modular design is hiding the seams where the polygons connect. That’s where using a singular mesh has it’s advantage, but just try to add more polygons to a mesh that has already has uvs. It’s a nightmare.

Leviathan Game – Completed Buildings and First Island WIP

Screenshot 2015-08-02 00.18.10

Although I haven’t been able to post for the past few days, I have been very busy on the Leviathan game. The two main buildings have been completed. I have the main layout completed for the island. Now what’s left is some polish. There still is some scripting and animation to do. I composed the game music which is more atmospheric then melodic.  I need to get it done by the 6th so I can submit it and promote it a little. It’s been a busy two weeks. I’m praying I can complete this by the deadline.

It’s finished. The low poly model is ready. The most worrisome part of the project is finished. The textures are completed and the character is completely rigged. He is ready to be popped into the game.

You might noticed from previous iterations that I changed his colors from a purple to a dark red. Added marks like patterns on his skin to give him have a more tribal look. It also makes him look a little more intimidating. ( I have some other color variations that can be swapped in and out)

You don’t know how many times I wanted to sculpt the mesh and make ramp and normal maps but I came to the realization that conflict with the style and the other props in the game.
