I had the pleasure to redesign and model the Mindflayer I made for the new Neverwinter: Jewel of The North Cinematic Trailer. As for the design, it had to be very similar to the mindflayers in the game.
Watch the trailer, it turned out great! Congrats to the whole production team at UMD!
Before I started sculpting/ modelling, I drew some exploratory concepts. I love to get to grips with the subject in this way and usually start with simple pencil sketches, which I then paint over digitally. Here, besides the characteristics of the materials, it was also about finding the pose.
