Team Members Discuss Bringing High Elves to Life

Team Members Discuss Bringing High Elves to Life - MMORPG.com

Two Lord of the Rings Online team members have participated in an in-house interview about how they worked to fit their inspiration for High Elves into the lore and to ensure that their animations suited them. Art Director Todd DeMell and Senior Animator Robert Tighe each spoke of their specific role in bringing High Elves to life.

Doing concept for the high elves cultural armor started with our typical bag of materials and construction, some traditional elvish themes and motifs and some others from Chris’s amazingly comprehensive culture doc. And from there, it was an exercise in going ornate and pulling back, getting intricate and then subduing. Pushing and pulling to find that balance between elegance and complexity. Between clean practicality and the richness of exquisite craftsmanship. I think what we ended up with for the armor expresses that balance well.

Read the full interview that includes how the animations were created by visiting the Lord of the Rings Online site.
