On the latest Final Fantasy blog, community manager Taji has revealed the process of creating the 3D monsters of Final Fantasy XV. Taji consults Mr. Kawashima on the process of making a monster for the game. With a model creation flowchart and an unfinished model of a crocodile-like monster, Kawashima explained the process.
First there’s a Mock up model creation, then a High model creation, a Real time model that includes Retopology, UU Development, and Texture adjustments and then the final tweaks. Final Fantasy XV is currently rumored with a September 30 release date, but the official announcement will be during the Uncovered event on March 30th.
