This was an interesting project because we flipped the normal workflow so that I created the concepts and sculpted the models in ZBrush before we sent the models to the illustrators. We sped up the workflow considerably and the resulting illustrations were fantastic. In particular, I was absolutely glowing when I saw the illustrations by Lie Setiawan. To see a design from my brain brought to life by such a talented artist was truly an honor.

The models were all designed and sculpted for print and production in soft PVC plastic for the board game, Widower's Wood.
