I've been doing concept art for a game at work lately, drawing monsters, characters and environments. It rocks!!! The team is great and the project pretty fun, good times. Here are some monsters, it's all development stuff so... I'm guessing it's ok to post 'em up here. Besides, the number of visitors this blog gets is probably below the 2 digits, so yeah, no big deal. Enjoy!

Coloring discoveries

Ok so this won't look like a big deal or anything, but boy oh boy I've just found a way to color animation drawings in photoshop which is like, too easy to be true. It took me like, a minute to color the drawing below, from it's unaltered scanned state. And if I make actions for the process, it could take like, 30 seconds. Given, it's a pretty simple coloring "style" (if you can call it a style), but it's just what's needed for animation. I also think I've figured out how to shade animation in flash, but that's fancies. But yeah, that means coloring the animation for my film next year will be a breeze... after cleaning it up nicely, that is, which will probably be more of a time consuming process. Well, at least that's one thing I don't have to worry about.

Poor guy... I kinda robbed him of his dignity.

Giants and doodles

Ok! Here are the very first concept sketches for a short film idea I'm currently developping. It's about an insomniac Giant who got a little stupid on a sleepless night, and now he's gotta fix his mess. The whole screenplay is pretty much all fleshed out on the first draft level by now, but I won't reveal too much of it yet. But oh, it'll be fun, it's got all the works and stuff: drama, action, sci-fi, comedy, religious taboo (all in good doses of course). Well, I'll stop hyping it up now because that's always a double-edged sword, enjoy!Notice how the background is just totally slapped on on this one. But it gives information!

That last page of doodles isn't concept art, of course. I just thought it was a fun page :D

Woooh color!

I'm thinking I should do drawings with some actual context and/or story behind them instead of just random characters all the time, because yeah characters are fun, but I'm realizing I'm missing out on a lot of other fun by not delving into that. It's just a bit daunting since I'm not that familiar with that kind of stuff. But anyway, enough talk, here's a starter, it's simple but I kinda like it. Markers and colored pencils.

That last one was done with a really, really dried out brush marker, but wow those things are awesome for doing subtle shading. Fun stuff.

Some sketches

That guy in the second pic is dedicated to the angry person inside all of us. Well, at least inside me. He doesn't take too much place but he deserves some attention every once in a while, so there.

Centaurs and other weirdos

Yay for markers! I was looking at Stephen Silver's artbook , which I think influenced the look of that centaur dude. He's such an awesome artist! Those horse bodies here were totally bullshited, I need to brush up on anatomy... but somehow they still look kinda plausible to me, hmm. Let me know if I'm wrong.
