Bethesda Game Studios is getting ready to launch one of the most highly anticipated games of 2011, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The trailer we created at Logan does a wonderful job instilling fear and anticipation for Skyrim’s worldwide release on November 11th, 2011. If you’re not familiar with The Elder Scroll’s signature non-linear, open world approach to RPGs, you may be slightly overwhelmed by the immense level of detail given to every aspect of the game, the deep character development, and most importantly: Dragons. (and you thought they had it bad at Jurassic Park.)
For this trailer I was in charge of handling the 3d assets coming from Bethesda. For the dragon I cleaned and optimized the geometry for the animator to rig and setup high resolution textures for painting. I also modeled the background ruins and Dragonborn Hero holdout for various FX layers on the last shot.
