“POLYQUEST HEROES” is the second volume of the“POLYQUEST” series, a high quality modular, light & versatile family of high-end low-poly assets. Combining both high production value & presenting a complete solution, “POLYQUEST” is simply a must have toolkit for productions involving any kind of stylized visuals.
“POLYQUEST HEROES” is a series of iconic characters representing the main archetypes of the “Hero” in popular culture, whether in films, games, stories,VR or any other form of contemporary story-telling medium.
Each title in this line of signature characters offers a world of possibilities in itself. We didn’t want to make characters just for the sake of producing characters, we actually wanted to develop a new generation of characters acting as your main source of inspiration so you can imagine new rich worlds, create compelling stories, develop inspiring games, experiences and films.
“DUDE I BIKER” is the first chapter in this series, offering something unique and never seen before in terms of design and aesthetics. Whether it’s your main protagonist, antagonist or any other character in your game, film or VR experience, both the “DUDE” and “BIKER” characters offer you a wide variety of versions with endless possibilities so you can select the best fit for your project.
These powerful, truthful and forward-thinking AAA digital characters are fully customizable, skinned, rigged with facial expressions and are ready for posing and animation. We approached character and costume designs just like in film production so that they are unique but still powerfully versatile since everyone needs to use them in their own unique way. Choose or make your own unique versions through facial expressions, poses, materials, colors, textures, motifs and lighting.
You can also toggle On or Off all weapons, attachments & accessories. We played around quiet a bit with these characters before releasing them and discovered that possibilities are just endless with them, as you can see in the screenshots.
Since we believe that the environment is no more than the extension of the character living in it, we decided to include more than 20 fully equipped examples scenes with different versions of the characters performing various actions in diverse situations containing different worlds, environment assets, cameras, layout, lighting, FX and post-processing.
