Trying very hard to make realtime art not look like a videogame

In this talk Lead 3D Artist Kalonica will give insight into the development of the art style of ‘A Thin Black Line’, a realtime virtual reality experience that sits at the borderline of film and games.

Rather than a traditional digital concept artist, the team at VRTOV worked closely with contemporary fine artist Vernon Ah Kee to translate his charcoal work into 3D space. It was necessary to move away from traditional videogame approaches to art as the team strived to remain true to the intent, elegance and physical qualities of Ah Kee’s work whilst also working within the limitations of realtime VR.

Taking the audience through development from the beginning, Kalonica will discuss what the team aimed for conceptually- the visual style, feeling and meaning, highlight the value of experimentation, and share technical solutions the team explored to create a realtime experience that does not look or feel like a videogame.
