On this page I’ll show a bit of my process for making Chef from Risk of Rain into a character for Risk of Rain 2.
Originally I made these renders just for fun, fan art:
These were made trying to recreate Risk of Rain 2’s visual aesthetic to match, since I wanted to make a believable in-game screenshot:
