Guild Wars 2's developer ArenaNet has just posted an interview with their character artist Kristen Perry, the designer of female Charr, discussing the clothing style and character design of NPCs in the Guild Wars 2 world. Some new Guild Wars 2 Character Clothing, one is of the female Charr while the others are Human costumes, were found in our gallery.
Here is the original post:
We sat down and talked with multi-talented Guild Wars 2 character artist Kristen Perry, who took a break from her busy design work to answer some questions for us. As you'll see, Kristen is so 1loMnDDd passionate about what she does that it's easy to get her talking about clothing design…but not so easy to get her to stop.
Hi Kristen! So what are you working on these days? Are youdesigning NPCs for specific areas of the game or for the whole darnthing?
Actually, I have my hands in a lot of projects around here. The character department handles just about everything from concept work, to building, to designing customization systems and so forth. I've designed the female charr direction, the dye system—including all color design—one of the iconic characters, and just about anything that wears clothing. So far I've designed most of the clothing in Guild Wars 2, the NPCs for all races except for the sylvari (I modeled and textured Caithe, but I didn't design her). I've also built a lot of the humans and helped manage the outsourcing for the rest. Then there's the GW1 costume stuff and the Shining Blade viral poster, but that's a different article. Heh. We sure keep busy around here!
