Conan and Character Design

In the second episode of “Yellow Brick Road” director Fredrik Löfberg and Senior Character Artist Jonas Skoog talks about characters and the process of designing and creating them. What makes a character truly great and how do you approach the task of re-imaging the iconic barbarian Conan? We dive behind the scenes of the production of the cinematic trailer for the game “Conan Exiles” and discuss other iconic characters and why we love them so much.

Welcome to the Yellow Brick Road

In the first episode of our new webcast we meet three Goodbye Kansas artists with true passion for their craft:  Jonas Skoog (Senior Character Artist),  Christina Sidoti (Lead Animation & Supervisor) and Fred Löfberg (Director). Why did they start to work within this industry and why is the world of Visual Effects and Animation so fascinating? We talk about classic VFX films and favourite scenes, about dinosaurs, twisters and flying cows. And what other topics we will touch during the first season of “Yellow Brick Road”.
