...probably the biggest underataking in piñata history
While working on the anticipated Clan Wars update, Supercell contacted Piñata to create a new title screen for their extremely popular Clash of Clans title.
The update was huge, a biggest one for Clash of Clans yet, and a major new ground in game mechanics as well.
To reflect this change, also the new title screen had to show the aspects of clans fighting each other, clan banners and a vast amount of lovable Clash of Clans characters.
"We kicked off by roughly sketching the layout, lighting, mood and color palette. Checked regularly back and forth with the Clash team and refined the sketches on a rough level. From there on it was 3D artist Timo's job to light and render everything out beautifully.", Tuomas describes the creative process, and continues: "Lauri Manninen from the Clash team was really hands-on involved in the whole design process. He actually posed most of the characters himself and did his own thing with the composition as well as the dynamics of the battle." This was good and beneficial for the whole process, since definitely the Clash team themselves are most familiar with the characters, their personalities and humour.
The collaborative effort and team work paid off in the end, since the image with this much details and different characters and was probably the biggest undertaking in Piñata history.
