Game Project Update!!

I've got a few concepts for the main characters of our steampunk game project. The team loved my BA Baracus character model so much, that they decided to make the game essentially an A-Team vs. Steambots style.

As such, here are a couple concept drawings for Howlin' Mad Murdock and Face Templeton.

More to come, so stay tuned.

On a team!

So I've recently volunteered my skills to a start-up group of developers.

We're making a game that could best be described in a nutshell as "Team Fortress 2 meets Left 4 Dead." In other words, 4 players, each with specific skills that promote player cooperation, on a team versus waves of enemies in an arena-style environment.

I was named the art lead, so I'll be heading up the art development-- which will be no small feat, as the team wants the players to go up against steampunk armies in an art style similar to that of TF2.

I love the style and art of steampunk, but it is a difficult style to pull off. Too many cogs and steam and the object looks too fake, but too realistically mechanical and you lose the whole concept.

This is going to be an awesome challenge!

More as it develops.

Current 3D WIP

BA Baraucs, A-Team Fortress style.

First in a series, hopefully. I've had some visions of Face and Murdoch, but they'll have to wait for the time being.
