I thought it might be fun to kick-start things on the forum again with some behind the scenes look at how we made everyone's favorite stone bodyguard... Roguard!
He actually started out as a little green cabbage. Haha.
Then we started going the stone giant direction. Our initial effort included armor pieces and a tree stump on his back.
We removed the tree and started making his proportions more fun. At this time we also worked in gems on his back that would contain his powers (which ultimately got cut)
Then we cut the idea of armor altogether and felt we were on to something.
At this point we're pretty happy with the feel of his character and decide to start modelling.
He required a few draw overs...
And he's done! Here is our final model and texture!
