In traditional MMOs, players create characters in the lobby screen, then choose one to enter the world with. In Crowfall, players are always Crows-- ethereal servants of the Gods who change form when they inhabit "vessels" (reanimated bodies) to scavenge relics and seek glory in the Dying Worlds.
In this video, ArtCraft's art team walks viewers through the creation of the Crow form, using a combination of painting, 3D sculpting, animation and visual FX to bring this narrative concept to life.
