Bandits and Thieves

Splat Attack has packed its bags and is off to Apple! Here's hoping the world is kind to our little endeavour. In the mean time, have some Bandit Bees.
Expect more yellow silliness as our Marketing campaign finds its legs. I'm also keen to start storyboarding the narrative people have been asking after - it's been a while since I've scribbled out a cutscene, so I look forward to it.

Along the lines of thievery and felons:

He wants his phonecall, Officer.
Anyhue, music tends to be my wildest inspiration and muse, so when Megan introduced me to Ink Dot Boy, this guy rose up out of the mists of my distant past and demanded to be drawn. So I did one afternoon when I should have been working. I had such fun, I may do a couple of mock comic pages in commemoration!

... Couldn't have put it better myself, Tez.

So the generous folks at PixelAnte have given me permission to share some of the work I had been doing at the end of last year. You may or may not recognise a few of these poses!

As ever, I always feel bad for the first few concepts that have to wear my learning curve. :( I found my feet in the end, but the disparity of quality and even style makes me regret not having the luxury of going back and tidying up the earlier pieces.

Also, Cupco Games.
This little venture of mine has stolen away what little social-life I've had and replaced it with bees. So many goddamn bees. It's my own fault, but damn.

Someone buy me a gin.

A Pocket Full of Poses

I live!

Excuse: I've been pretty wrapped up in my own little indie scene over the last few months. It may very well be the most terrifying thing I have ever done, but to be fair it's also been the most rewarding. It's certainly the reason why I've dropped off the face of the planet, so bear with me while we wrap up Beta. :)
In the mean time:

In other news, I'm nearing the end of one of my part time contracts, and the director was kind enough to let me share what I've been working on.
It's all about the 'tude.

One thing I love best about this stage is really getting into the personality and energy of a character. And while some might consider a cleverly thought out costume or a unique scar or prop to cover that element of the design, I get the most mileage out of poses. Body language can be much stronger than even a facial expression, and I always over reach and create terrible crimes against proportion just to nail that attitude.
So yes, 6 characters in shocking state of undress. What fun it was!
