New Concept Art For 'Attack On Titan: The Real' Theme Park Exhibit Released
Attack on Titan: The Real opened this week at Universal Studios Japan, to great excitement from fans. The exhibit puts fans in the world of Attack on Titan which includes everything from the setting, to the food, to the larger than life titans themselves. New concept art shows what went into creating such an amazing attraction.
The studio behind the concepts for the large attraction is Dead Panic Studios out of San Antonio, TX reported Comicbook.com. Side note, they're relatively local, why can't we have this, America?
As it turns out, turning 2D anime characters into 3D giants wasn't exactly as simple as it seems. "Trying to figure out how two dimensional anime characters would look as real, three dimensional people was definitely a challenge that made this project so fun and rewarding," Jeff Paulsrud, the co-owner of Dead Panic Studios said.
I would say they succeeded. In the images and footage we've seen of the park the titans are horrifically real. If they moved, it would be all over for ever sleeping again.
There was also no room for error according to the studio. I would imagine that not only Universal Studios Japan but also the massive fan base would be disappointed if the items they were charged with designing were even the slightest bit off.
Everything had to be believable in the real world, everything had to work from the massive titans down to every tube and hose in the Omni-directional gear.
