To be honest? What was Star Wars? George Lucas!!! It was cool back then in the 70 ties! Nothing ever before was like it..and it had character! 2 little shiny robots that behaved like humans! The n th sequal of something that was major in the past...! My advice? Start something new dont copy Star Wars...and give it some heart again! Put the industry to shame!!!😉 my 2 cents..
Well that's a lot of hats !
So why not finish the project but making it super generic? Strip all star wars terms out. Then when the game is finished, allow for modders to make a conversion mod that will reinsert the star wars material? That way he can finish it and we all can get what we want and no one has to give up on their dreams.
Chinese VFX guru from The Netherlands has perfected the production of digital 3d human characters.
We hear a lot about photogrammetry today, and almost every day we see new amazing scans, that are almost indistinguishable from the real deal. With the advances in the capturing tech, many artists believe that soon there will be no need in realistic 3d sculpting. but what if you need to create a copy of a person, who died long time ago. Like Johan van Oldenbarnevelt – a Dutch statesman who played an important role in the Dutch struggle for independence from Spain (thx, wiki). Here’s where Mao Lin Liao comes to the rescue.
Mao-Lin is a professional 3D artist in the VFX and Game industry. He’s originally from China, but most recently he’s been living in The Netherlands. Apart from working with various clients (Guerrilla-Games and Triumph Studios) he’s doing a lot of personal projects. his speciality is hyper realistic character art.
You might have seen his works a while ago, when he released the first images of his character Alex. She looked a lot like Emma Stone to me, but it seems like the references were completely different. Alex was rendered in a very realistic manner, which actually helped her to get on to the pages for the Dutch Playboy magazine.
Currently Mao-Lin is working on the portrait of Johan van Oldenbarnevelt. He’s not only doing the sculpt and some intricate skin texturing. He’s also working on animation. Here’s a little glimpse of the way he animates the eye of the character. It looks absolutely sublime, if you ask me, and we can’t wait to see the final version of this project.
