Here at Wolfire we think it's a good idea to keep thinking of new ideas for games (as we mentioned in this blog post), because you never know when you will hit on something cool. Because of the 10-year anniversary of Deus Ex, I have been thinking a lot about the cyberpunk setting, so I decided to do a few concepts and a test asset to explore some of those ideas.
First, here are some sketches of robots that inhabit this setting:
Next are some thumbnail sketches of the humans who live and fight here:
These quick drawings are good for comparing the shapes and silhouettes of the different character, but we need more color and detail to really show off their different styles:
Finally, I made a 3D character asset to test out hand-painted shading:
I hope you like these sketches! I still devote almost all of my effort to Overgrowth, but I find that sketching out other ideas helps get my mind from getting cluttered with them. Who knows, we might even use them one day! What do you think of these sketches? Are these characters you would like to see in a game one day?
