I have manually crafted each character individually creating the most diverse and colorful crowd in optimized Low Poly Style. This includes one hundred people consisting of kids, teens, adults and elders, dressed in casual, formal or professionals outfits.
Originally created with 3ds Max standardizing quality with my own scripts exporting as FBX, OBJ and tested for compatibility with the Humanoid System of the Unity Game Engine.
Best Use Cases and Why
Low Poly Style has gained interest from advertising agencies and game developers due to a combination of appealing aesthetics and resource economy. With minimalistic polygonal shapes you achieve strong and beautiful images that at the same time are easier to handle by designers without needing extraordinary skills, long time-consuming processes or great hardware power. So, Low Poly is even good for the environment!
Illustration and Explainer Videos
The simplicity needed to construct an idea that makes it easy to understand to the audiences is very often expressed using flat design illustrations and animations. These Low Poly characters have been textured with that in mind so they can be rendered as “flat” or “unlit” shading, allowing for solid integration with 2D illustrations.
Case study: Wall Street Journal explainer video.
It does not make much sense to add half a million polygons realistic character to your scene that already has millions of polygons. The project becomes unstable. It also may fall in the uncanny valley because with realistic character you need realistic animation and believable human details.
Low Poly comes to the rescue. You can add this whole pack of 100 stylized characters to your scene increasing the polygon count only by 100,000! The scene remains lightweight and the character’s minimalistic design doesn’t attract the attention of the viewer in an unpleasant way. On the other hand, they preserve the focus on the main subject, the building structures, while enriching the image with a sense of proportions.

Low-Poly assets find their definitive home on mobile and web apps. This style shines on limited constraints platforms, achieving smooth responsiveness without sacrificing the artistic beauty. This 100 Low Poly People Mega Pack goes a little further taking out the need for several textures from the formula, unifying the solution into a single master palette of colors.Each 3D model’s topology is clean and manually optimized. A simple general-purpose rig tested and compatible with the Unity Humanoid system.
