I’m from artist background, I can draw human body alright, but making 3d character is whole different thing.
What I was wondering is, even AAA game characters look like artist used some reference human model… like they kinda mixed several famous actors’ faces together.
Even for professional character designer, making human from scratch without copying actual human face is not easy thing? Do they actually use real life actors’ face? For example, in last of us Ellie looked like ellen page at first but later the model has changed more like voice actress’s face.
I don’t know about professional’s work style at all, I’m just curious.
