The Vikings


 Here are some images from the second machine I've worked on while at Cego. Finished in late 2015 and it is called Vikings....can you guess the overall theme?
I used Zbrush and Maya for the 3D work. Photoshop for texturing and what not and After Effects was used for compositing. The overall shapes where quickly blocked out in Zbrush- especially for the more organic things. Then over to Maya for retopologizing - then back to zbrush for some quick and easy Uvs, a bit of sculpting, then some polypaint and extrating of normal and texture maps. Rendering was done i MentalRay.

 - The top bar from the frame on the main screen. Inspired by the "J√∂rmungandr" (or "midg√•rdsorm" in Danish) from Norse mythology. In my version the one "worm" has to tails and the other two heads - it is not a mistake....shhhhh - 

 

- A line up of some of the symbols -

- The first sketch for this symbol, over the model to the finished image -
 
 
- The same model was used for a side-scolling mini game, here's an early sketch, a concept and the 3D model -
