I've been with Sony's Sucker Punch studio as Art Director, and it's great to finally announce our new game, inFAMOUS Second Son and debut our in-engine trailer along with the unveiling of the super cool new Playstation 4!
I was invited to contribute to an awesome art show, and created this one-off print. The show is called PRESS START, Video Game Art by Video Game Artists, and is hosted by the Ltd Gallery here in Seattle. I thought I'd try and do something painterly for one of the world's biggest game franchises, made right here in town by a couple of hard working studios. I'm pretty excited about the new game!
Looks like my piece sold already, but check out some of the awesome entries up on display!
Also, don't forget to sign up or tell a friend, the upcoming session of FuturePoly classes are filling up fast for the next quarter. Just take a look at the awesome student gallery! Come get your learn on!!
I came up with an April fools' prank for Guild Wars 2 last year, and with the help of some of my talented ArenaNet friends, it was a giant success! Check out the official page, and some more behind the scenes on the Arena blog.
Photo-chopped sketch I did for our character modeler, Delly Sartika.
I thought it'd be cool to have a modern shooter style military character as our "next playable profession". So after a lot of prep work, I shot full on skill videos, like we do for all the real in-game professions and I coordinated with my buddies so that across the board, from our web releases to interviews and model renders, our "Commando" roll-out was as believable as possible. The joke page got more facebook shares in three days than any of the other professions got in months up on the site!
Here's the real-time-rendered, in-game-cinematic-cut-scene for the Guild Wars 2 "Catacombs" dungeon. I directed this and drew up the story boards- big huge high five to my kick-ass team for hitting such a high quality bar. I think it came out super nice and I'm glad we get to share it before the game is out!
My good friends at Fleetstreet Scandal are back with a new drop-dead gorgeous Yuki-7 book! Peep the absurdly stylish new animated trailer below, go buy the book, and then get sad cuz you'll never be that cool... at least that's what I'm going to do!
