Lead character artist Jimmy O'Ready, who has previously worked on games like SSX (Can you see the similarities now?), was met with similar praise. He's recently opened Montynero Characters and Montynero Concept Art, which are based out of Dundee.

"Montynero is positioned to provide the highest quality of characters, concepts, and expertise for all game types, anywhere," O'Ready commented.
