Hollywood Styled Semi-Realistic

3D Gaming Characters


About Project

Our client, a gaming publisher, is popular for multiple AAA and indie games. They needed a creative game development partner to design characters for their latest Hollywood-styled game. 8 characters were needed with hair particles and 4K resolution. The potential partner must have a competent team that can meticulously sculpt each singer’s facial features with the highest accuracy. After a one-to-one meeting, Hey Buddy was selected as the creative partner to bring these characters into 3D life. We extensively used Blender and ZBrush to capture the signature looks of each singer and design them individually.

Project Challenges


Ensuring Facial Accuracy

We had the major challenge of reaching the facial accuracy of the characters as it was beyond simple modeling. We had to replicate the unique variations in expression lines, skin texture, and other characteristics. The characters must be virtually accurate and emotively resonant.


Building 4K Characters

Another hurdle was achieving high-quality 4K resolution to render details at a pixel-dense level. It increased the challenge regarding the technical capacity of the software and hardware used in the rendering process. The resource-intensive process had a major impact on rendering time, storage capacity, and overall system performance.


Implementing Iconic Looks

It was hard to ensure the perfect implementation of digital characters according to the iconic signature look of each singer. We had to go beyond the basic facial features to capture the unique elements, such as various hairstyles, special facial expressions, and recognizable characteristics. It was vital to create digital counterparts of real singers.

Client Testimonal

It was necessary to collaborate with a creative team to bring our 3D characters to life. Hey Buddy’s team did a terrific job in achieving the highest level of detail in 4K resolution. The details in each character down to every wrinkle and freckle are truly remarkable. We appreciate the authenticity and commitment of the design team.
