Link in Recovery!

Ohhh hai! I thought my last update was it for the year...but I LIED! I had time to squeeze in  a Link fan art. On those long epic adventures of his, Link gets into a lot of fights! This is him in the recovery stage, perhaps wishing he'd just stayed at home that Sunday ;)

And the black and white if you're interested.

THIS is my last update of the year! Not gonna finish the Skyrim DLC before then *sob*, no 360 coming with me to the UK. Seeya again in 2013!

Odds and ends

Hi all! Just some quick pics here - outside work and this season in general getting in the way of my usual flow :) Father and daughter mechs, and some super swift environments!

I am playing the Skyrim DLC, Dragonborn, and am deeply happy with it :D Love that game so much, just so fun!
I'll probably not get the chance to update again this year (going home!), so merry Christmas and everyone have a happy new year!

Christmas card!

Ullo! The card says Merry Christmas in Japanese (Katakana). Warm cake and coffee...or mulled wine, hot choc, tea...!

New Skyrim DLC comes out this Tuesday - you can fly on a dragon!! I will be buying it for this alone, and cos it will be nice to book end the year with Skyrim again (only no pneumonia this time :P).

Pre-dinner sketch

Winter sister and a speedy environment

Ullo! Just a winter pic for my sister, and a weekend speedy pic!

Finished Assassin's Creed 3, NOT happy with the ending! In fact most of them had rather unsatisfying endings...all those hours, gone -_- Playing through Borderlands 2, replaying Puzzle Quest, getting ready for Skyrim DLC...it is that time of the year! And eggnog lattes are out, woo hoo!
Bai for now!

Hungry cheeseburger

Ullo! A quick evening pic, the result of being very hungry whilst waiting for dinner!

Loooving Assassin's Creed 3! I am trying to do every side mission - these games bring out that side in people. Already 12 hours in, but I swear I've hardly progressed the story... And Halo 4 is out tomorrow! Wooow! Need to play...
Bai for now!

Ullo again! A speedy I then decided to take a little further :)
One day a large rock creature took a nap, only problem being this nap has lasted centuries!

 I am extremely excited for Assassin's Creed 3 out this week! In the meantime I started playing Zelda: The Minish Cap...an old game indeed, but why not? ;D I could have played Dishonored or Borderlands 2, dunno what goes through my mind sometimes.

Winter, plus a monster!

Hiya! It's been  a little while :) Various trips (like New York comic con, WOW!), plus games means I've been a little slack of late -_- With the change of seasons, my fave being autumn, I created this pic for my love of autumn trees! I also took  a trip to the ski resort Whistler last weekend, which may have influenced me just a tiiiiiny bit, heheh!

I also did a speedy pic last week, totally forgot about it, so here it is: please do not feed the snake demons!

Just finished The Walking Dead ep 4, but without spoiling it I bloody knew that was gonna happen! I shall remain cryptic. Very excited for Assassin's Creed 3 next week. C'mon c'mon c'mon!

Rembrandt Fish

Hiya! Drew a very quick sketch of a fish, and somehow it became this - I call it the Rembrandt Fish :P He is a grizzled veteran when it comes to battle.

The track 'Hold On' by Holy Ghost was listened to often whilst drawing it:

Meant to say before, another game I had the chance at working on at DeNA Canada called Metal Shock is now out on Android! Check it out here:


Torchlight 2 is finished! Great game, very enjoyable, looooved the art, and some great boss fights!I fully intended on buying Resident Evil 6 today, but somehow walked out with the big Skyrim box set (with dragon and art book!). Yes, I already own this game and finished it....but it came with a dragon!!

Random fluff

Hi hi! Just felt like doing something totally different one evening. The cat on the left is what happens when I don't have an art director (jokes!):

I finished Torchlight, the sequel is out in under half an hour (midnight west coast time). I was planning on staying awake for an hour and playing...we shall see!

The Wind Waker fan art

Hiya! Here's a pic I entered for CG Hub's Zelda competition - to take one of the characters from the universe and change it. One of my faves was Makar from The Wind Waker, such a little cutie ;D I thought I would make him much older and wiser (his leaf is now an autumn colour), and he's become more like a rock as he's aged.


Playing through Torchlight, very excited for the sequel coming out this week!!  Soon Resident Evil 6, yay! Not to mention pumpkin spice lattes are now at Starbucks...love this time of year :)

Skulls, waterfalls and cat soldiers!

Ullo! More pics for thee! What was a sketch became this below! Story goes...
All would be warriors must reach the skull waterfalls, and have a 24 hour staring contest. Only then will you be considered a warrior...grade b!

I also drew a cat warrior last weekend and totally forgot to put him on here! It's not a furrie, *sob*, it's not!

Played and finished The Walking Dead ep 3, gawd this series is great! Soooo tense! Warning: do not play this game and eat ice cream at the same time, it just does not work... 
Am staring at my game pile, not sure what to pick up next...

Bilbo's feet, a troll key, and more Zombini backgrounds!

Ullo again! So I discovered another pic is in the new The Hobbit box set :) Underneath are the actual cards as they appear in the set, heheh. So ooooh yeah, Bilbo's feet and a Troll key, here ya go :P

I also realised I still had some more backgrounds to post from East Side Games :)  Land, water, air!

So now all my wisdom teeth are gone. I may be less wise from now on :( I was hoping to play games, but these pills are pretty strong! Zzzz.

The Hobbit cards

Hi hi! I did some work Fantasy Flight Games for The Hobbit: Over Hill and Under Hill. I'm not sure how many of my pics have been released for it, but I know for sure the 2 below are out :) These were drawn last October/November listening to Florence and the Machine on loop!

Still playing through Super Metroid - love the bossfights :D Pretty creepy! Am losing all my wisdom teeth tomorrow - somehow I have 5. Not looking forward to it, hope I'm not a big baby! BUT the clinic has a huge robot in the foyer, yes!
Bai for now!

Horn initial concepts

Ullo! Last year I was asked to provide initial concepts for the game Horn recently released by Phosphor Games (the main character was yet to be designed.) Def a bit of a Shadow of the Colossus vibe going on :)

I went through many versions and takes on the creatures for the game, seen in the following sets of thumbs!

Outside of this, played through Dear Esther - what a strange game! Pretty gorgeous though - I've always wanted a game by a bleak, stormy coast ;) And ow I'm playing Super Metroid for the SNES as I've *gasp* never played it before! Old games are hard.

Asti visit pic!

Ullo! My twin sister is visiting me in Vancouver, woo hooooooo! So I drew a pic for her visit :)

Those are coffee shops we visit when she's here :) Sadly, Main Street does not look quite like that (but my sister does looove the mountains and trees here!).

My first game I worked on at DeNA has been released, Fatal Frontier! I did colour adjustments to many of the characters (including the purple lady in the top left of the page :D):

 Fatal Frontier on Google Play

I finished ep2 of The Walking Dead - no one was happy with me, and I made a decision that kind of upset me the rest of the night :s Onto Dear Esther!

LOTR and more Zombini backgrounds!

Heya! August already?? Yeesh. Soon my twin sister will be here visiting me in Vancouver, I CANNOT WAIT! For now, more old art! Another LOTR card went out, the Underground lake which I drew last July (....omg a year ago!):

Aaaaaand some more Zombinis backgrounds! A few more left after this ;)

Gonna start Dear Esther soon, hear it's a good game :) Saw Dark Knight Rises, my least fave of the trilogy, which is NOT to say it's a bad film, just not the best. I'm fussy ;)

Zombinis backgrounds!

Ullo! Sorry for the lack of updates, but my excuse is the new job and freelancing :) I thought I'd start posting some of the work I did at my previous studio, the wonderful East Side Games! There's quite a bit, so I shall spread it out over the next week or so (to look like I am a good blogger, ahem!). 

These are some of the backgrounds for the Facebook (and Google +) game Zombinis! We wanted to mix and match backgrounds to appear like there were many more, so I divided them into separate components as ya can see below. I was tearing through about 1 and a half a day, whilst unknowingly suffering with pneumonia, great times hahah ;D So here are 3, and I will post more in the upcoming days!


Here also was one of the viral feed images, drawn by art director Kyle McQueen, and coloured by me :)

Outside of work, I've been playing The Walking Dead, now on episode 2! Woah are these games tense, and I feel like I make all the WRONG decisions! No one is ever happy...(and not just cos of the zombies!). I've also been reading through the manga, Vagabond, which is brilliant, though is it kinda sad that when I think of Musashi and Kojiro, I think of Pokemon (that being Jesse and James' names in the Japanese version)? :s
