This sword lady is the result of a Freelance work done for an great client, VFX Apprentice.
I had an absolute blast making this character - it really makes a huuuge difference when you are working with a super dope concept to begin with, as well as having a very easy and cool client to work with.
The character was done in 2 work weeks, but over a span of a month. It is by all means a optimized game character, to properly work in a game scenario, but the polygon/texture budget was not very strict, as long as itmar is performant.
All in all this character plus Sword an props is under 40k tris, with 6 texture sets at a 2k output each.
I really took this opportunity to ramp up my presentation in general, since I found that this is one of the areas I tend to fail the most.
