Didn't get to bed till about 3:00 last night but I told myself I would force myself up in the morning before it gets to hot and go do a little painting outside. So here are some gouache color studies in the cool morning. Now I need a nap.
Today in Seattle we broke some heat records. It got up to 105 in my part of town, granted most people around here don't have AC and I am one of them. It's 97 right now in my house and I have two fans kicked on high blowing warm air on me, AWESOME! On Top of that it's been a very trying crazy sort of day. One of those days that produces major changes in ones life. But amidst all the turmoil I did these concept sketches, which seems all to fitting to my life right now.
I know some people that have a huge list of games they have worked on that never made it to the store shelf. It's always a bummer especially when it comes to the resume.
A lot of games get cut by the publisher or the game studio is so mismanaged and in turn poorly executed project getting it canned.
This was from such a project. In the beginning the game concept was clean and simple with plenty of room for game play depth. I only ended up working on it for the demo to pitch to publishers but once it got sign I soon found a new job and avoided, what seems like now it's inevitable fate.
Style wise it was going to be fun and funky. these are some textures and a little concept that were for the demo.
digital panting that I planned to tighten up and finish , but then I moved on to something else. When I circled back to work on it again, there was no desire.
Bah! Should have stoked the fire while it was still burning with this one.
