Developer Ninja Theory is back offering more insight into their development process for Hellblade. The 16th chapter in the series is titled ‘The Face of Senua’ and delves into the process of capturing extremely detailed face scans.
Not content with the in-house technical capabilities, the team travels to 3Lateral, a company who specializes in 3D face scans. Using video editor Melina as a reference point for the character of Senua, Ninja Theory came away from the process with a supremely detailed model of the character’s face.
Watch the video below to see just how realistic the model of Senua turns out.

I have really enjoyed these dev diaries Ninja Theory has been producing. They are a fascinating look into the game development process and the results of the 3D face scan are incredible. Everything from the cracks in the face paint to the wrinkling of the nose is impressive.
