I have been working in the industry for 9 years as a modeling and texturing artist. Currently, in Shanghai China, I work for a company that develops online sport games. Moviefest was a lot of fun because for the first time, I was able to design and produce a movie character.
Entry: I chose to make Sao Feng from the movie, "Pirates of the Caribbean". In my new design, Sao Feng found an ultimate treasure map and is now a power who is responsible for the rebirth of deep-sea pirates. His original beard has been replaced with a similar shaped squid-like tentacle beard, and although the costume design is very similar in shape to the original, it's now comprised of deep-sea Elements, like sea monsters, coral reefs and the like. During the production process, a good portion of time was spent on the head and upper body, as they were important elements to successfully portray his personality. I was happy with the end result.
This was the first time I took part in a game art creation challenge. I enjoyed the process and learned a lot about design and productivity. I would like to thank everyone involved.
