My name is Ronnie Ree. I'm the animator on Deep Rock Galactic.
I want to show you a few behind the scenes images of the dwarves' armor.
Each character class will have very different armor or outfits.
Heavy characters like the Driller or the Gunner, will have big heavy metal armor outfits, for more protection.
Other characters, like the Scout (also internally called the Navigator), will have a light outfit, so they can move around more quickly in the environments.
The idea is to make the armor sets very customizable within each class.
So, the Gunner will have many different shoulder plates, helmets, and so on to chose from, that is only available to him.
The same goes for the other character classes.
Below you can see an image of the setup in 3ds max
The intense colors are only for working, it makes it easier for me to see which armor part belongs to which class - it will look different in game.
I hope you enjoy this little blog post. See you underground!
