Check Out Naughty Dog’s Newest Character Artist’s Stunning 3D Models and Artwork

Recently Naughty Dog has been hiring quite a few new developers to bring some fresh blood into its ranks, and between the new hires there’s Senior Character Artist Nicolas Collings.

Collings is definitely no cub in the gaming industry, having worked since 2007 at larian Studios, Ubisoft and then creating the stunning characters for Blur’s cinematic trailers.

Here's an extensive look on what he can do.

That AC3 design looks totally better then the one we's less patriotic and looks like someone who actually isn't bothered with the war.

They look so good right now, I can just feel the realism!

elhebbo161638d ago

You thinks so? I would argue he looks more patriotic wearing red white and blue.. I does look more bad ass here though.

-Foxtrot1638d ago

The red has always been on most Assassins, it baffled me why they removed it and added more blue

Then it became clear with there pro "American" theme to the games advertising. Trailers, teasers, gameplay videos was basically "F*** Yeah America" and nothing but red coat killing, they made it seem like he was on a side even though they said it wasn't about the war for him. Look at the main trailer, he comes from the colonist side, who are loosing, kills a bunch of red coats and inspires the cooonists to keep fighting. It would of made sense for them to fight and see Connor ride down the middle of the battle field killing both sides and both Templar generals.

They were as bad as each other in the war but Ubisoft toned it down for the colonists and made the red coats look over the top bad.

I mean going by what the games have taught us through the codex it would of made more sense if the red coats were full of more Assassins and the colonists were full of more templars BECAUSE since the red coats loose the war it would of shown us how the templars gained more power and how in the present they control everything. It would of been the turning tide of the Templar vs Assassin war.

Instead of Haytham and his British chums being the templar threat of the game it should of been the founding fathers which shows you how they became historical figures in the rise of America...because they were tempalrs.

It was poorly executed and I think it was because Ubisoft were scared shitless of the backlash.

Sorry I'm ranting, they built up so much with the codex and tried to back track with it.

My one wish is a Sci-Fi Naughty Dog game. If that happens, with those kind of character models....i can die happy.

-Foxtrot1639d ago (Edited 1639d ago )

They should make a Sci-fi game in the style of Guardians of the Galaxy...that would be amazing.

Bit on the comedy side since any other serious Sci-fi game might feel like Mass Effect, Halo or Killzone etc

Savage Starlight!

BeardedPriest beat me to it! Savage Starlight FTW.

I'll play any game they make though, they've always delivered top-notch.

What's not to love?

Say hello to my little friend.

The vadge-mouthed monster was horrific.

ZombieKiller1639d ago

Kind of makes me wonder what sort of ancient "what the fck" we will run into in Uncharted 4! Freaking exciting!

sarlucic1639d ago

Oh, that is the new Daxter from the upcoming Jack and Daxter reboot.

Man, this guy's good. Speaking of Blur, did anyone see the Sunset Overdrive trailer they did for E3? Brilliant.

Abriael1639d ago (Edited 1639d ago )

Blur has been my favorite animation studio for a long time. The first time they came up on my radar it was 10 years ago with Dawn of War's cinematic intro.

So epic...

I've been in love since.

WeAreLegion1638d ago

That's fantastic! What's with all the disagrees on most of the comments in this thread? Haha.

BillmadeAGate1639d ago

Im hopeful that after Uncharted 4 they'll announce a new Jak & Dexter.. Its waaay over due..
