A Legend is Born

Dragon Age: Legends has been played by a zillion people on Facebook, and was one of the first games on Google+, so I guess it’s safe for me to post the cinematic here. From memory, after the storyboard was approved, the animation took me 48 days.

I was only given a loose description of events and characters to adhere to, so I had free rein to do my thing. Using ToonBoom software I designed, storyboarded and animated everything from scratch. The sound was done by EA’s audio contractor. Hope you like(d) it!

When it was released, one particularly violent scene was cut out. This is the uncut version complete with all the gore of flying organs and bone shards.

  4. Heya Adam, long time fan here! I was wondering if you started the BCA FX course or when it’ll be starting. Your special effects are amazing I would totally love to learn from you! I was kinda late on hearing about the kickstarter event so I didn’t get the chance to donate.
    I hope everything goes well for your surgery and recovery and thanks for sharing your knowledge with us, your videos are amazing!

    • Hey mouse. The FX course is up and running right now for the Kickstarter backers, so in the next couple of days I’ll be opening the doors for new subscribers 🙂
