Korn Ferry – Kai
Based on early character design supplied by Korn Ferry, KAI was created and developed in Reallusion Character Creator 4, utilising the Headshot plugin, before being brought to life in Maya and Houdini. Textures were created using Substancepainter and Photoshop. KAI was rendered in Redshift.
Our biggest challenge was to create a warm and engaging character with non-human features that would resonate across different markets and demographics.
Midjourney was employed by our in-house AI prompt engineer to creatively explore options for KAI’s age, hairstyle, heritage and ethnicity which informed the look and ensured we had a solid foundation for the facial modelling and rigging.
We created a suite of assets using the KAI model – including animation and stills.
