To create a realistic character, we first gathered numerous 3D showcase images of top-notch characters from globally renowned AAA games like God of War, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and For Honor as benchmarks and reference for our design. Each realistic character emphasizes every sinew and stance, embodying the indomitable spirit of the legendary figures.
