Space 2099

Here's some dev art for a re-visioning of the classic TV series that I never thought I'd get permission to post.

Fable III

Another blur classic! I did these thumbnails to help lay out the chicken's frantic journey.

What? I'm on Sketch Theatre?

One hour at last month's SDCC

Here's a nice scan courtesy of Lilly at Sketch Theatre- thanks!

People have commented on the two-handed drawing technique i use for the line art. I do that when tired, in a less-than-optimal posture, or want to be really accurate.

Wrack and Ruin!

More DCUO stuff-mighty Metropolis laid low by a long superhero war...

This pic almost made the poor scene assembly artist Kris Kaufman cry, but he manned he hell up and built an environment that brought me tears of joy.

Some ideas for Wonder Woman's tussle with Metallo. A ruined bank with classical columns, a truck with a Metallo-shaped dent, and Giganta's corpse as a design element. I'll stop at nothing to get a good scene!

Since these rough thumbnails were going straight into production, I overlaid notes on each pic to aid the modelers in their herculean challenge. Pow!

More? Of course there will be more!

A few more...

Explorations for a wartime Joker. We do these quick studies as a regular practice here at blur- it's fun! This job was huge- Sean McNally stepped in to do the final design, which made my craptastic sketch look awesome.

Likewise, some variations on Circe- I basically overlaid the in-game design over Terry Dodson's beautiful take on the sorceress. We opted for a classical Greek hairstyle- the technical challenge of free-flowing hair and that nutty Kirby-esque head-dress would have blown the render farm!

Here's the final- I'm not too crazy about it! A note about the backgrounds- they're based on photos treated with a cheesy Photoshop filter and painted over to try to make them original in the short time allotted to the task. Don't hate!

DC- Who do you trust?

Blur's tireless crew really sweated for this one- and it was worth it! I did a bunch of concept work- enjoy!

More to come...
