In-game shot of Celeste.

Some more shots.

Celeste in T-Pose rendered from inside Unreal.

Celeste ZBrush. Hair model by Cris Lonergan-White and Richard Hammond.

Spin of Celeste from Marmoset, with and without wireframe, to show off modelling and form. A little bit of material differentiation put in as well.

Some examples of face poses using the morphs i created for Celeste’s face. Rendered in Marmoset, so please forgive the hair not working as it should. I’ll add some more characters when I can.

Examples of Hero outfits. Constructed inside the customisation tool, which I designed. There were 16 Heroes, each with 30 outfits. They also had different hair, skin and eye colours and we had just started rolling out masks and make-up onto some.

Examples of Villagers constructed in the customisation tool. Models by Mike Morton, Ashley Sparling and Cris Lonergan-White
