A guideline workflow I developed to help internal and outsource Concept Artists produce component designs for Star Citizen.
This Russian Doll approach was intended to reduce the amount of work needed to produce a range of components by reusing design elements. These rough component concepts were also built following the Custom Normals workflow used on Star Citizen. This allowed the concept meshes to be instantly dropped into CryEngine to be previewed by the directors. Many of the concept meshes that were built this way were even used in the marketing videos for the ship sales.
