Various Illustrations by Request [Apr. 3rd, 2010|07:19 pm]
For the last two weeks I've periodically offered to draw whatever I was asked to on my comic's blog. The results are a mix of the 70-Seas's cast doing various funny things, and the random machinations of my audience.

Dudikov wanted to see a shark fight a bear gladiator style.

Wtachi requested Nikol pelting Grin with candy.

Jeremy asked to see Serra in a crows nest with a squid there.

Jason thought it was high time that the Sisters of Impetus discovered electricity.

And finally I decided to do a second one for Jeremy with the Lapakian creation myth.

IkaTaii wanted to see girls kissing, cutely.

Joooon asked for mobster cats, I gave him yakuza cats.

Tawa wanted Lewk to fight a dragon, unfortunately Lewk's a coward.

Watachi wanted a whole Lagish orchestra, that's a LOT to draw, so he's only getting 1 instrument at a time.

J_Hodgie requested a geek commanding a robot to destroy a city.

Jeremy wanted a man gardening underwater.

I tried to get Hilde to make out with a girl for Cyber Skull, it didn't work out.

Bergasm wanted a "Lagend Grim Reaper Child" I know what those words me, but not in that configuration.

Dudikov wanted to see how Serra would lose her eye in a fake story that didn't even happen.

I'll be doing more of this in the future, so keep an eye on the 70-Seas blog or follow me on twitter to find out when.

For Carol that ring is a reminder of everything that's gone wrong in her life.
She'd get rid of it, but her finger's gotten too big

Sick of traditional 'natural' animals veternarian Dr. Moeron employed the awesome power of vivisection to create whole new strains of life.
How he made a cat without an anus we have no idea.

I'm working on retooling the design of the hero of the puzzle platformer I'm working on.
His only defining characteristic is that he can hop between dimensions so I have a lot of leeway to operate with.

The Metal Lands [Nov. 12th, 2009|02:59 pm]

Statues of this sort are quite common in the Metal Lands where its denizens have mastered the art of sculpting rock in its molten form.
What's truly extraordinary about this image is that the sun is peaking out of the clouds. That almost never happens there.

This is Nico from my buddy Lars's webcomic North World. She beats up monsters for a living.
That's a giant chicken by the way, Nico is normal human sized.

Recently I made some illustrations for a presentation my brother plans on giving at GDC (Game Developers Conference). They're meant to illustrate some aspects of interface design.
Intuitiveness vs. Abstraction
Lack of Control
Control Confusion
Even More Control Confusion

The dungeon of Kuraga is said to be 100 floors deep. It is said that the monsters of each sub-basement are more horrifying than the last.
This however should probably be taken with a grain of salt since no mortal has ever passed sub-basement 2.
