We did the Fable II game cinematic early in 2008.
On this show I made the Male Child Hero, the Sparrow in the intro, and a Villager Woman. I also created the hair for the Male Child Hero and the Dog. My friend Becca Baldwin did the hair for the Sparrow.
Speaking of hair, this was the first show at Blur that I did hair for. This show taught me how tough it can be to do hair. I remember being so incredibly frustrated with trying to fix hair penetrations and make small changes to the style. I always compare styling hair to sculpting clay with mittens on.
Back then we used HairFx and styling was such a pain since all the guide splines had to be separated. Now we use Ornatrix and styling and rendering are significantly easier. However to this day I still dread doing hair.
This project was modeled in Max, I think most of the texturing was done in Pshop. I think there was a little bit of sculpting in ZB and it was rendered with Mental Ray.
