The Order: 1886 was one of the most cinematic and highly anticipated titles for the PlayStation 4 this year, and whilst opinions may vary on the game itself, one thing is for certain, it looked amazing. The developers, Ready At Dawn, have given an insight into how they go about creating characters for their games, with a look at one of the relatively minor characters, Lakshmi.

First they start off with a brainstorm, where a few people may come up with some basic ideas and sketches for characters.


These ideas are then assigned to teams of 5-10 people to realise them, turning those basic sketches into full 3D models.


The end result is an astounding sense of realism from the characters.

It’s interesting to see the design of the characters change so dramatically over time.
