At Cavedog I help create Total Annihilation Kingdoms. I was tasked with designing, modeling and animating one of the four races in the game. Veruna was a seafaring race with many interesting units. The Veruna Priestess design was influenced by ancient Greek female Olympians. The Berserker was modeled after ancient Scottish warriors. We took our designs from many ancient civilizations. Ancient civilizations has become a passion of mine since TAK. Lately I've been researching the Tocharian civilization in the Gobi Dessert. After TAK we created an expansion pack. I got to create 8 of the Creon units. TAK was a project I really enjoyed working on. It was a good game design and we had a very strong art team.
You can see the Ancient Greek influence on my designs here.
I built a lot of ships. I even put a trebuchet on a catamaran. We had harpoons, cannon, sails and oars. I animated all of the motions for all of my ships. I had to transform a biped walking into water and becoming a mermaid.
