The Settlers 7 - more workers by ChristianNauck The Settlers 7 - more workers by ChristianNauck
More worker-types:
farmer, carrier, baker and a miller.
The miller was actually the first concept I did for The Settlers 7, hence the different style! :)




"Die Siedler 7" [link] / The Settlers 7" [link] by Bluebyte/Ubisoft finally hit the stands some days ago. :la:

I did most of the character designs for the game and I'm planning on showing the big bunch of 'em here. :woohoo:
I'll start with some of the worker-types. These are some of the earlier concepts I did - now almost two years old. :omfg:

A constructor, a ranger, a miner and charburner.


The kind of style and the bodytypes were already defined when I came to the project, so it's all a bit of a mix of my style and a style the guys at Bluebyte had in mind.

The biggest challenge was to keep the design simple and readable. It's so much easier to to a detailed, fancy look instead of a reduced design that works in a game like "The Settlers" - even zoomed out the characters have to be recognizable. I got a lot of helpful input from my A.D. Michael Filipowski about this.

Considering stuff like this, or the limitations of the 3D-realization and animations was completely new to me. But I grew into it after while I think. :)

Lovely design and - what's most important - the figures are distinguishable by their shapes alone!
I especially like the baker, even his beard looks like a little bread to me :XD:

Hihi, fein, danke! :)
Fies war immer (vielleicht nicht speziell hier nötig aber bei einigen anderen Figuren), dass ich keine grossen Überwürfe z.B. an den Schultern machen konnte, da die Figuren ja beweglich bleiben mussten. ;)
