These are background crowd characters I created for the VR game Blacktop Hoops. I created these original winter variations between September and December 2020. It was a fun project to work on while I was teaching, and it was great to be a part of a project with so many other talented artists. I want to say thank you to Gop Gap (https://www.artstation.com/gopgap) who did the original concepts, and Jonathan Lin (https://jonathanlin.design/) who gave me some great feedback towards the end of my time on the project. Check out the game!
The characters were created in Zbrush and Maya, and then textured with substance painter. I made the two texture variations for each character shown, but more were made after I submitted them to the project by other artists on the team. Each lowpoly character was built to be optimal for VR budget constraints.
