Meet Sam the Junior Palaeontologist at the Calgary Zoo. Sam is your guide through the
new Dinosaurs Alive exhibit in Prehistoric Park, coming to life both in sculpture and in interactive signage.
The making of Sam began with our creative design team, and he was first drawn in Photoshop to create a 2D initial concept that was presented to the client. Next, Sam was developed as a fully 3D digital asset so that he could be moved, posed, and modeled to fit any situation. This 3D modeling phase was completed in ZBrush, a program that we use extensively in house to develop dimensional characters and objects.
