Codemasters has added a new developers diary. This week it is a farewell article from one of the artists on the team. Apparently he is taking off on a trip around the world (must be nice!). It features some pretty cool artwork of the weapons in the game. Here is a bit from the article:
After that I moved onto creating the weapon for the Empire of the Lady. The ?pipeline? for creating one weapon goes more or less like this: Concept, model, texture, create the level of details, create the collisions and then try and get it into game. No easy task considering there are dozens of weapons but it was still a very enjoyable experience.
As well as that, I have also created various other object which can be found around the empires such as village details and ground objects. Also, another area of my job was to inspect objects completed by others in order to make sure they were up to the high standard which you, the punter, expects. This involved checking poly counts, styles, level of details and so on.
