What can I say about the Ghee Happy materials? So much of what makes the look iconic is what the world is made of. I worked with Joey Chou to come up with some pleasing 3D materials that walk the line between photoreal and stylized. We wanted something that gave viewers the feeling of playing with vinyl toys, but a bit more stylized. The amount of imperfection in the surface quality was highly curated.
Because we were working with our partner Superprod, and had limited budget, we had to find ways to be decisive. One of the best successes for the project was the 114 page "Material Guide" that I created. After crafting the materials that will be featured in the show, I created the guide to act as a sort of menu that we can refer to when creating new CG assets.
