BioWare has released a set of highly detailed character kits for its upcoming space epic, Mass Effect: Andromeda. The kits are high-quality PDFs that show characters at multiple angles and level of zoom, including extreme close-ups of detail work, and color codes.
Each kit includes four full-length character shots rotated to show every side, close-ups of the face and head profile, torso front and back shots, three rotated leg shots, arm details, hand details, and finally textures, materials, and color info. The Peebee kit also includes numerous detail shots for a revolver called the Sidewinder.
The kits should be a huge benefit to artists of all stripes, and will certainly make things a lot easier for the cosplay community. At this stage only kits for Cora Harper, Liam Kost, and Peebee have been released, but BioWare’s blog post on the subject claims more kits will be coming soon, so keep an eye out for more.
Can’t decide which character to work on first? Look for inspiration in the recently released crewmate profiles. If you’re leaning toward Peebee, this video focusing on the “completely goofy” character may tip you over the edge. We also have five suggestions for what we’d like to see in Andromeda’s multiplayer.
