We took on a very fun project a while back creating characters for a game and toy IP. Here are some of the design images showing the process from concept to render.
For the toys, special attention had to be paid to the articulated joints especially when the design called for limbs and weapons swapping.
Here are a couple of our favorite characters from the lot-
