NBA Legends Style Exploration by Zatransis NBA Legends Style Exploration by Zatransis
UPDATE! I loaded the wrong file previously. Here's the new one.

Here is one of the style tests Big Menace Industries did for Lionside's game NBA Legends. The art director wanted a dramatic lighting scheme and slightly exaggerated proportions so we did a couple paint-ups based on the silhouettes we did earlier in production ( [link] ) and eventually got this one. This was the "magnetic north" for the style of the game. I generated this image and then Ryan translated it into a vector look for the game.

You can check out the game here!: [link]

Next up: Steve Nash!

The stylization of the image is very cool! Too bad they're not playing better.
