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!

TOME--Robin by DNA-1
TOME--Robin
Robin The Wind Dancer began with another look entirely, but I guess someone deemed it too sexy (?!) fairly late in development, and they ended up scrapping the whole package--finished model, certain animations, and character illustration.  Never really got the whole story, but they decided to promote this deity-inspired skin up to actual base character.  Don't get me wrong--I love the look of this character--and I did the concept art for both, so no problem there, but it was a major bummer to me that the original was scrapped.  Hang around a couple of days and I'll post the original.  Then I'd love to let you guys compare on contrast the two.

TOME: Immortal Arena
is a brand-new MOBA title from Kixeye, and it just went live on Steam this week!   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!

Fathom
Fathom is the first character from the Water Domain, with a massive frame built of coral, water, and ice. Slow but resistant to damage.

TOME--Morlock by DNA-1
TOME--Morlock
The first of the Death characters, Morlock is a quick, hound-like slayer on the battlefield.  A lot of people seemed to be playing him during the Beta.

TOME--Nyri by DNA-1
TOME--Nyri
Nyri's another one that I'm especially proud of.  I did the original concept and, based on that, helped the team define what a Wind Domain character looks like in general.  Later, she because a central character in the key art and marketing for the game.

TOME--Khar
I didn't design Khar, the first guardian from the Fire Domain, but I like his Steampunk-y by-way-of-Blizzard blast furnace design.

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

It seems like Big Hero 6 is on it's way to become another Disney smash success!  I hope you enjoyed the movie as much as the tons of people that I heard cheering in the audience!

Would you ever consider drawing the Disney version of your characters in your style as some sort of retroactive adaptation fanart?  Like it's fanart of movie characters based off a comic you created!

As long as you don't have any sort of NDA about it, I think you should!  I'm betting that the people here would go bonkers if you were ever to do that!

It's really just a matter of finding the time.  I have almost zero free time to just draw things for fun, and Marvel knows I'd love to do this sort of thing as a cover.  Maybe it'll happen at some point.  Really would love to do it!!
