"This video is a collection of some of the work that went into creating the character of Revenant from an animation perspective. Of course, this only includes selected pieces of my work as it takes an entire team of animators, writers, modelers, tech-artists, sound designers, gameplay designers, etc etc in order to fully bring one of our legends to life!
Revenant has been one of my favorite legends to work on and I personally had a blast animating him as well as coming up with some of the early ideation that you will see in this video. A very important thing to understand is that not every idea is a good idea and just because something looks cool or intriguing is necessarily the right direction to approach so during the exploration phase its ok and encouraged to go wild with ideas and tests in order to know when we have gone too far and pull back. But if you never push the concepts to the limit, you may never reach that sweet spot that nails the character _
As an added bonus, I also crafter a little cartoon vignette to go with this demo. I hope you like it and I would love to hear your comments on the video particularly the early concepts. What caught your eye the most? what part did you see and wished it actually made it into the game. Drop me a comment if you can, they're always super fun to read! _
