While working at Tiburon, one of my largest tasks and achievements was developing a new standard for skin-tones and player head models. There were several hurdles to overcome, one of which was an old system that needed to be updated for hundreds of players. My solution was to create 8 skintone groups, one of which would be used for every player in the game, no exceptions. These shots are of the players I chose to represent the groups. To show all eight would be a little much, so I chose both extremes and on in the middle. The players shown are Matt Hasselback of the Seattle Seahawks,Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals and Ronnie Brown of the Miami Dolphins.
