Blur Studio/The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind - Announcement Trailer (Dwemer Spheres)

© Blur Studio / Bethesda / ZeniMax 2017, “The Elder Scrolls Online – Morrowind Announcement Trailer”

These are the final iteration sets done for the Dwemer Spheres, shown in the TESO: Morrowind announcement trailer. I wasn't told how they would be used for the final product, so I took it upon myself to research them. I found out that in Skyrim, players could craft a dynamo core that could be inserted into these robots, allowing them to be summoned as familiars. So, in previous parts of the iteration phase, I did support drawings to show how the chest opens up to house the dynamo core, and how from the back, the torso can be more clearly seen as some sort of generator mechanism which draws power from the core and diverts it to other areas of the robot. I redesigned the forearm to open up and have the bow fold out of it, removed the hand because it served no purpose, and made the waist more structurally sound because it was too thin to believably support the upper body's weight.
