Once A Stray Models and Animations

3D Models created for Once A Stray, a 16-week project in where I was the Art Lead and Animation Lead.

This project was a challenge because all characters were quadruped animals that were required to move not only like the animals they were meant to be, but also with a character twist as magic is imbued throughout the game. This made making interesting and unique animations a welcoming challenge while also taking the core vision and adapting it to marketing. I learned a lot about how to get the movement of a quadruped I wanted while also including unique bones to accommodate for some character's abnormal masses.
