PAX Prime!

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 21, 2014, 12:12 PM
PAX logos PAX PRIME is just around the corner--August 29 through September 1st--and I'm happy to announce that I'll be there all four days to help show off Kixeye's brand-new, kickass MOBA title, TOME: IMMORTAL ARENA!  I did pretty much all the character art for the game, and I'm excited to finally share that with you guys very soon.  

We'll be sharing booth space with Twitch, so you can't miss us, and I'll be on hand for drawing and game demos throughout the weekend.

Lots more details to come--hope to see you there next weekend!

Poison Ivy Marker Sketch by DNA-1
Poison Ivy Marker Sketch
From last weekend's Phoenix Comicon Fan Fest, here's another commission I did, this time featuring Poison Ivy.  Only the second time I've ever drawn her, which is kind of surprising.  I should do it more--she's so fun to draw!

Baymax Marker Sketch
Baymax drawing from last weekend's Phoenix Comicon Fan Fest.  My friends all know how near and dear Big Hero 6 is to my heart, having previously worked on the comic, but I also really loved the movie.  Never had the chance to draw those versions of the characters though...until now!  Here's my first take on movie Baymax.  Enjoy!

TOME--Talia by DNA-1
TOME--Talia
Talia is the second guardian from Creation and hurls alchemical orbs at her enemies.  Another one that was popular during Beta.

TOME: Immortal Arena
is a brand-new MOBA title from Kixeye, and it just went live on Steam!   Over the past 2 years, I contributed quite a lot of art to the game, first as a concept artist designing the initial batch of characters and, later, as a marketing illustrator responsible for the vast majority of character art you see on the Character Select screen.  Definitely a project that's near and dear to my heart, and hey, it's free to play on Steam (or Kixeye's own website) right now, so check it out!

TOME--The Krugas by DNA-1
TOME--The Krugas
It's a Sharktopus, you guys--a SHARKTOPUS!!  The Krugas is the most unusual and creative of all the TOME characters, and I love him for that.  Bet it was a nightmare for the animators to rig and animate, but it was well worth it.  This guy's awesome.

When I lived in Hawaii a few years ago, I had a band teacher named Mr. Nakayama. He was a cool guy. :D

Hm... I wonder if we're related somehow.  How many Nakayama familes could possible be in Hawaii?!

I watched Big Hero 6 yesterday (had been too busy before). Loved it!

And who made it into the "thanks" section in the credits, along with Mr. Claremont? :D :D :D

Congratulations!

I know, right?! :D  Can't believe they did that, but so classy.  Did you see the Big Hero #1 cover Easter egg?  Next time you see the movie, Tadashi's reading the issue while lounging in bed at one point.  Squee!!

I did not see it. I was literally trying to see everything in the backgrounds (and trying to read any Katakana I cuold find), but there were so many things, and the true Easter eggs were hidden among all that.

Baymax, of course!  So much cuteness and heart.  Loved what they did with him.
