The woman in Cyberpunk 2077′s teaser trailer is a real-life model, trailer’s early concept images and artwork revealedPaul Yan January 18, 2013 - 8:14 am
Platige Image, the co-creators of Cyberpunk 2077′s teaser trailer, have revealed some behind-the-scenes images of the video. There’s some early concept sketches, 3D scans, and real-life photos of the woman shown in the trailer.
Cyberpunk 2077’s teaser trailer sure was beautiful and impressive. It centered around taking down a bloodied, arm blade-wielding female android who slaughtered a bunch of folks. It was lovely to see, really, and as it turns out, the aforementioned android wasn’t some virtual creation that was made out of thin air. No, that android is actually a real-life model (pictured above)!
Platige Image, who are the co-creators of the teaser trailer, posted a bunch of early concept sketches and 3D scans of the trailer, and included among them are pictures of what the woman in the trailer actually looks like in real life.
On the subject of using a real-life model, Platige writes:
Ever since we set out to create it, we knew the promo would work only if the female protagonist engendered a serious emotional response in the viewers and push the aesthetic boundaries of the typical female form. Video games frequently feature banally designed female characters, composed of the same hackneyed elements. Though undoubtedly beautiful, these characters are often contrived. In this particular case, the ability to work with a real actress thoroughly transformed the film.
The scanning enabled us to capture this fleeting element of authenticity, to use the beauty of a real person. It was truly a qualitative change. Despite the fact that the scanned models required processing and remodeling, they turned out to be the perfect solution for this project, as far as both timeframe and quality are concerned.
Platige says that the only thing that was created from scratch was the hair, in which photos of it were used as reference.
