Deiv Calviz Draws His Way Into Our Hearts
Deiv Calviz is a concept artist for The Sims 4. His job is to come up with the amazing creative stuff we get to see every time a sims game or expansion pack releases. The concept artists are basically the architects behind the lovely graphics in the Sims 4 as well as their initial design and animation. Earlier, Mr. Calviz released a couple of new concept art images for two new rooms! Check them out below:
I was assigned to lead a team of 12 artists for almost 2 years to do the clothes assets. We used a combination of tools from EA on top of Maya, Zbrush, and Photoshop. We worked closely with an awesome team from EA (Ti, Derek, Caiphus, Alex, Ethan, Lisette) to help bring the assets up to quality.
Each cloth asset was art directed down to the pixel to make sure it looks best in the least amount of resolution possible. The screenshots below are the combination of assets I did from modeling, UV, sculpting, baking, texturing, weighing and even the final setup before being imported in-game.
