For now, just the pink run is up. Later, perhaps others. This and more new things going up in the shop.
Cityscape color studies for Dino Run 2. Click the link and see the new gameplay video—it looks really fantastic. Mad props to the Pixeljam folks for being so great to work with—they really let me have fun with colors on these.
You know what show I really like? Hannibal. You know what show really freaks me out? Also Hannibal. Everything and everyone is just so pretty/tragic/suffering/dead.
It’s a show populated by diverse actors and actresses (moreso than the usual hollywood lineup, at least), and it is clearly made with artistic attention to detail. I am looking forward to their next season.
Hey everyone! This guy and more are available at my INPRNT shop, where orders are 25% OFF today until the Dec. 3rd. Check out this and more, and feel free to request a print of something if you don’t see it there!
More concept sketches for the stegosaurus and carnotuar! The drawings are mine, the pixel gifs are, of course, PixelJam’s.
Praying for a miracle on this one.
The High Priestess 2013.
Confronting the waters of the unconscious. Stillness. Turning inwards. Calm facing of the dark subconscious.
Sighs and Whispers 2013
This being speaks in chords and arrangements of tones. Different heads will pick up different notes. It scuttles almost soundlessly through the woods at night with its single eye to see through the underbrush.
Beware of dischordant arrangements or ominous keys if you hear a distant rustling.
Ink and watercolor.
From my doodle-blog. Going to probably be posting weird random stuff on there too.
Taking a break from watercolor carnage for some digital color funtimes with the Dino Run 2’s Pixeljam!
The top-most image is a collection of some mini-paintings I did of different color schemes for a volcanic level. They really let met go all out with toxic, doom-y, end-of-the-world vibrant colors.
To-be-shown— how the images above are translated into PixelJam’s hyper-precise pixel art. I cannot wait!
More environment and other art sneak-peeks to come. In the meantime, please please PLEASE donate to our kickstarter if you have not done so already. So much is going to happen with this game, and so much has already happened. These guys are the real deal.
Colors, colors, colors!
I have had the privilege of working with these guys on their new game, Dino Run 2. I can’t even begin to emphasize how awesome it is to work with people who are so enthusiastic about color, mood, and getting things just right when it comes to environments. The top image is a sneak peek of some of the environment concept paintings I got to do for them. They really let me go all-out with keeping things loose and letting me focus on color—-and as you can see in the bottom image, the actual pixel execution is extremely precise and tight.
Help us make this game happen, everyone. I will be sneak-peeking other yet-to-be-shared-anywhere-else environment art and dino drawings as the days pass.
I got a new sketchbook that is compatible with watercolors. This means that instead of second-guessing every random doodle I make (“should I color it? Should I leave it? Should I redraw it on better paper?”) The obvious option is to color it because it already exists on such paper.
Quality of life improved approximately +1000%.
Kind of an obvious thing, but the best solution re: worrying about low productivity is just having materials in front of you at all times.
