Thrones Frens 3D Character Study
Gettin’ by with a little help from my frens.
The wait for the final season of Game of Thrones was long, and I was really starting to miss Westeros.
So to pass the time I decided to make some adorable little 3D versions of my favorite characters. I call them my “Thrones Frens”.
Created in C4D + Substance Painter
Rendered with Redshift
Composited in After Effects
I really enjoyed digging deeper into 3D characters:
• Proper Topology / Modelling
• Hair / Fur grooming
• Clothing / Armor / Props modelling
• Lots of surfacing fun in Substance Painter
One particular challenge was capturing these very recognizable characters while maintaining a playful, stylized look.
I started by trying to match the faces pretty darn close to the actual character/actors, and then adjust proportions.
Body proportions, in particular, do a lot of the heavy lifting to get that Funko Pop look.
