I was born in the year 20XX and sent back into the past via space capsule to prevent Judgement Day. I think they sent me back too early, because nothing is really happening yet. So, until I get the call, I'm usually just sitting around, readin' comics, playin' videogames, and drawrin' pictures.
- To get the power-up and save the princess. Will settle for steady job with decent healthcare plan.
Just combing through my files after the weekend and came up with some odds and ends that I thought might be of interest to you fine folk. I will add a liberal dash of hilarious commentary as well! Lucky you! As always, click the red for hi-res.
A couple of people requested No More Heroes art in my last blog, including one Doctor Jonathan Holmes. Having never done any No More Heroes related artwork before, I figured what the hell. I let myself go a little crazy on this one, mish-mashing traditional and digital artworks together. I think it did a decent job of capturing the smashmouth punk rock mindset of the title.
AvP so far stands as my "goddammit, so close!" game of the year. Parts of it shine like precious jewelry while others crumble like a handful of dried mud. What I wouldn't have given to have a straight up "Alien" level similar to the bonus level of the original AvP Gold. Just you, a ship closely modeled after the Nostromo, and an entire terrified crew. That would have been the dog's balls.
Yojimbo's been asking me for Dudley art for awhile now. He's been a patient man. I had originally intended to do it in the New Challenger style, but realized it didn't fit the format (being that the New Challenger series is specifically limited to the original twelve world warriors). Instead, I did something a little different in a different style. Hope you dig, my man.
I'm not sure if this will be of any interest to the general public, but I figured I'd go ahead and share it just because. Most of the art that I have is similar to this - I call it "key art". It's basically quick thumbnailing with an extra splash of color or detail to get a vibe down. If it tickles my fancy at the end, I move onto a full blown piece. This art took about fifteen minutes to put together and definitely shows. Still, thought it might be interesting to you guys to see how I approach doing the more elaborate stuff I put together.
Oh, uh... the game. Well, it's fun, but man is it short or what? It feels like I'm sliding through the nine rings of hell like a fat kid down a waterslide. I barely have time to register the art design (which is fantastic) before I move onto something else. I do feel like I might give it a second playthrough, though...
Well, that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by. We do so love the company.
