Uncharted 2: Among Thieves 3D digital sculpture

Dale Weir's picture

Hanno Hagedorn is a 3D artist that worked on Crysis, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and the upcoming Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. After promising (mostly himself) to create an online portfolio of his works, it's (mostly) done. Most impressive among his work are these digital sculptures of characters from Among Thieves. If they could be recreated in resin, I'm sure they would be mounted proudly on the bookshelf of every Uncharted 2 fan.

Below are examples of what he did for Uncharted 2. More can be found on Hagedorn's personal site.

What's going on there--

Maybe I'm missing something, but why are the women headless, but the man isn't?

Really, deeply creepy.

Getting the statue

Actually there is a way to get these:

but the artist would need permission from the studio to release the model. I tried convincing a studio I worked with to get this as a promotional tool but to no avail. CrystalRender has been around for years though.

Works of art

With the female "statues" it looks like the artist was going for a Venus de Milo or Nike of Samothrace vibe. Of course these great statues are revered pieces of art that were thought lost to history. I think that he was doing an homage to those works with Chloe and Elena.
