Despite feeling under the weather, I sketched up this "cover art" action pose for the upcoming game. Also, having just talked to my programmer, it sounds like we'll be using them in another game idea he has as well... I'm enjoying this time to be creative and get some of my own ideas out. If I could only making a living doing this...

After a long weekend with Mom in town, I'm finally back on the game sketches. This lucky guy is the second player character that you'll enjoy in my upcoming iphone/ipad game. I started to base him on another friend of mine, but roughly the hair was all that I kept. The clothes are going to mimic the main character in the tv show Chuck. Now that I've got the player characters on a good path, I'll move forward with some action poses and coloring before moving on to the enemy drawings.
On another note, Masked Man Entertainment is currently programming my previous project and we're working out a few things that were over looked on the first pass. I'm very excited to meet with him this weekend with hopes of seeing even a rough version of the game.

Another player character. This one will be earned after having completed about 50 levels. He's the heavy hitter with the most powerful weapons, but he's also the slowest. I've loosely modeled this character after my friend Andre. Yeah, I like to work my friends into my projects when possible. It helps me get a better feel for a character when I know them.

BEHOLD! The first set of sketches from my latest iPhone/iPad game. I find that the first character is always the hardest as it sets the tone for the whole look and feel of the game. This particular character will be the first of 3 player characters and she was inspired by my girlfriend Michelle.

As you can see, I almost forgot about this blog.
So far this year, I've spent a couple of months working at Primal Screen on some flash animation shorts for PBS. That's all I can say about the project, but I had a great time over there working with a fun, talented crew. I hope to make it back over there soon... I also knocked out some cute character roll overs for a new Cartoon Network show page ( CLICK HERE ). I then wrapped up the final art (pending changes) to my latest personal ipad only game, and did a quick update for my friends at Skidrow.com
While waiting on the next project to come along, I'm going to dive right into my latest iphone/ipad game. My plan is to post the concept art as I go, so hopefully you'll see more regular updates on here.
Oh, the Alien game has been put on hold, but will probably be brought back to life after this next game is wrapped. My plan is to get at least 4 games in this year.
Drive it like you stole it!
