Cyberpunk Charakterdesign 4

This bachelor’s thesis portrays possible workflows and approaches in the entertainment industry for video games and films used to create realistic character-focused concept art, keyframe illustrations, or even promo art.

With a focus on the documentation of the practical realisation of the workpiece, various software, such as Photoshop, ZBrush, Cinema 4D, MoI3D, and Keyshot, were used to explain the principles of design as well as the genre-specific aspects of cyberpunk or character design in general. The resulting workpiece is a 3D model of a futuristic character and its prop. Presented in dynamic poses and cinematic renderings, the pictures are intended to demonstrate the end result of iterative design processes as they can be used in the creation of entertainment art.
