Old School Mini Comps

these images are from a few mini comps that i partook in a few years back when i used to frequent Gameartisans, an online art forum. Fun little exersizes :)

1. Mini Zech-A mini version of my Dominance War entry, previous to this comp.
2. Cloust-A chibi version of a dark knight.
3. Zangief- A well known character.
4. Olias the Pirate-A rough illustration for a 2D mini comp

Assassins Creed 3DS

several characters from a Great title that didnt make the cut.

The black suited Ezio was the initial model made from reference provided by the client but was scrapped after a change in suit design, at which point the white version was made.

The enemies are 2 of the 5 or 6 characters i made. The textures are res'd down from painted 512 maps and the geometry is reduced to "safe" margines. each produced in under 3 days a piece.

and lastly Ezios eagle. 400 polys 1 256 painted with the expectation of being seen from a distance.

overall production time around  20 man days, the majority of time going to main characters.

2D art test

an exercise asked of me to show my style flexibility and technical approach. I was asked to create legionaries in 2 different skews targeting 2 different demographics, while spending only a couple hours on each piece. i was given a style guide and technical reference for both skews. color was not required for the male. only a simple pass for the female.

Rakkt Lan update

Spent a few hours yesterday building a base mesh. the next step will be a rough paint over to further the silhouette. clothe garnishings, straps, buckles, armor details and the likes.
