Bayohne here, excited to show off some neat behind-the-scenes magic that goes into the making of A Realm Reborn!
As part of Computer Entertainment Developers Conference 2013, digital artists from four gaming companies went head to head in a two hour challenge to create a digital sculpture of their assigned topic using ZBrush!
In fact, one of the FFXIV development team members was part of the competition! Check out the site linked above for some images.
They showed off a number of FFXIV digital sculptures at the conference and we’re able to share them here, too!
Please note that these are in-development sculpts only.
The artists temporarily use pale colors to make it easier to sculpt, and the final textures (and accurate colors!) are added in afterwards.
As you can see, there are more than a few famous FINAL FANTASY characters that just can’t wait to meet the adventurers of Eorzea!
