Video Game Character to be Based on New Hampshire Model
Ever wonder where all those realistic video game characters come from? Turns out they are often based on concept art and finding a real person to match.
To make such realistic characters, a lot of filming of real people is involved, and one such character is a local New Hampshire model, Sarah Maillet, according to WMUR.com.
She tells WMUR.com “I’ve always thought it would be cool to either be a superhero or a comic book character, this is really cool.”
Sarah is a published model, so she has the experience for the job. She had a photoshoot for the video game “Black Powder Red Earth” last month playing the character named “Snow,” WMUR stated.
She says the character was described to her as a gun-toting, tattooed cool girl who is cool, the news station reported. She is perfectly cast for the part. The project is, as we can imagine really fun, but it has a very personal meaning to Maillet.
She tells WMUR.com “I have three older brothers, and one of my brothers who I lost about a year ago to leukemia was always a big gamer, and I thought he would have thought it would be the coolest thing. So, it’s really special to me in that sense.”
I know I will be telling my gamer son to check out the release of “Black Powder Red Earth” when it comes out. How cool is it to have a New Hampshire native as one of the key players? I would love to star in a video game!
