The asset (fondly named Pirararata internally) was created as part of a portfolio project for the studio. The idea was to create a stylized anthropomorphic character that could represent Brazil. We also ended up adding the pirate theme to it, given that one was what seemed the most interesting during the sketch phase.

We went through all the process to create this character, from concept, to sculpt, through remesh, baking, texturing and then importing it to marmoset and configuring materials and lightning to best showcase it.
