The Last Of Us Has Some Spectacular Character Modelling, And A Lot Of It Is Home Grown
I bet you didn’t know that a prominent artist living in South Africa has worked on Uncharted 1 and 2, and is now doing some fantastic character modelling for Naughty Dog’s latest title, The Last of Us. Judd Simantov left Naughty Dog after Uncharted 2, but has since begun freelancing for several studios such as Blizzard.
Recently he released the video above, which details his character rigging and modelling for none other than Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us. It’s some truly spectacular work, but there’s something about the fact that this comes from South Africa that makes it all the more special.

I’ve had the chance to meet Judd in person, and I have to just re-emphasise what an amazing artist he is. Really, go look up some of his previous artworks. They’re rather awesome.
So when you’re playing The Last of Us in little under a month’s time, just keep in mind that some of that fantastic looking charter modelling comes from right here. Kudos Judd.
