2010 -2012 / CRYTEK

Working directly with the team at Crytek Budapest, Karakter created a comprehensive style guide for the production team to guarantee consistent visual excellence.
To illustrate the principles of this style guide a series of inspirational paintings and concept artworks were produced to fuel the development of the game.
We are proud to have contributed to this visually stunning title!
