Drakensang: The Dark Eye Developer Diary #10

Drakensang.info has cranked out a tenth developer diary for Radon Labs' Drakensang: The Dark Eye, this time with developer "B. C." telling us how they create a character model for the game.
After the game designer has written the character concept on paper it has to be visualised in the next step. If a new drawing is desired, it has to be kept close to the original artwork, so the excitement of recognition is preserved for the fans.

This is also why we´re involving the well-known and popular illustrators of the original pen and paper works, Boros and Szikszai, who have created a good deal of the archetypes and NPCs for Drakensang in their characteristic style.
