E3 2010

Just got back from attending E3.  It was a great show, tons of cool stuff to check out (including the booth babes, haha).  My liver is still shaking from all the free NOS.  I don’t collect much SWAG and wasn’t looking forward to waiting in the super long lines, but I did get to check out some cool stuff I wanted to see.  Marvel VS Capcom 3 looks awesome.  I got to try out 3d glasses/screens for gaming (it’s like the tech you see in 3d movies now where the screen is blurry if you look at it without glasses).  It looks super awesome but there was a little flicker in the glasses and by it’s nature you couldn’t have a whole room of people watching you play without having a bunch of headsets for them, so I don’t know if it’s all quite “there” yet to me.  It’s great to see the tech coming along though…I want my virtual reality dammit!

Popped by the IndieCade section to check out the indie devs since I’m hoping to become one down the road.  Lot of cool game ideas there…there was one game that plays in “4 dimensions”, and another that reads gamma waves in your brain as you play.  Surreal stuff haha  It’s good to see people experimenting with new ideas, and to see that E3 supports them enough to give them their own space in the show.  This is a good time to be an indie dev, there are a ton of platforms you can easily get your game onto VS the 90s when you had to go through publishers to get any exposure.

All in all it was a great show.  Some friends and I hit Vegas for a couple days before the show…but what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, haha

Angry Ryu – alternate style

art, anime, drawing, street fighter, ryu

I decided to re-trace and re-color the Ryu I drew earlier today for Scratch Club. Went with a totally different color scheme because I wanted to do the painterly “throw purple in all the shadows” thing. Pretty happy with how the lineart came out but it feels a little less energetic than the sketchy version. Fun to play with a different style though!

Angry Ryu

art, sketch, doodle, anime, street fighter, ryu

Scratchwork Topic: Street Fighter

Time: 3+ hours of thumbnails trying to come up with an idea, 2 hours once I got one I liked haha

Angry Ryu! Grr! Attempting perspective. I was going to re-trace this one up inked nice and clean and do the colors painterly style, but I was roughing out how the colors would look and decided I liked it as a sketch with cel-shading.

Shakey-cam tests

This is just a test of camera effects.

Final Power Zelda

art, anime, drawing, final fight, power stone, zelda, cody, rouge, link

Scratchwork Topic: Final Fight, Power Stone, and Zelda

Time: 4 hours

Was sick and busy with other stuff last week so I missed the last bunch of topics. So here they are all combined into one epic. Cody from Final Fight in his Street Fighter Alpha costume, Rouge from Power Stone, and good ol’ Link. This was fun to make, haha

Resident Evil – brrraaaaaiiiinssss…..

art, anime, drawing, resident evil, jill valentine

art, anime, drawing, resident evil, chris, redfield, zombie

Scratchwork Topic: Resident Evil

Time: 6 hours

Still wicked sick. Wanted to draw Jill Valentine being attacked by crows but at the last minute decided to go with Chris Redfield kicking some zombie ass. I’ve been doing a lot of top-down lighting lately so I decided to try some lighting from below this time.

Resident Evil 2 is my fav game in the series (first one I played and the first game to ever make me have to pause and put my controller down to let my heart settle down haha), but I think Chris/Jill have cooler character designs than Leon/Claire so I wanted to draw ‘em.

Megavania…it was either that or Castleman.

art, anime, drawing, megaman, castlevania, simon, belmont, cutman

Scratchwork Topic: Castlevania and Megaman

Time: 3 hours

I am awesomely sick so I missed out on the Castlevania topic yesterday because I pretty much slept through the day. So to make up for it, here’s Simon Belmont VS Cutman haha I wanted to do his chain-link weapon because I want to try some crazy chain perspective but time was tight and I’m about ready to pass out again so I didn’t get super adventurous.

Adding flats, some blur to the legs, and Guile.  Got to come up with a background and do the shading and I want to have dust effects sweeping up from the ground below Chun-Li…all sorts of fun stuff.

Spinning-Bird Kick!

art, anime, drawing, street fighter, chun-li

Scratchwork Topic: Street Fighter

Time: Like an hour of thumbnail sketches picking out an idea, then 2 hours of fucking around and not making any progress, so I scrapped the re-trace and redid it from scratch. An hour or so later, this is the result, yay!

Totally got over-ambitious with this one, so all I’m posting up today is the line-art. Boo-urns! Got plans for this one, another character, a background, some blur/dust effects, all sorts of cool shit.

Any big issues with her that anyone spots, lemme know, there’s still time for me to fix ‘em before I keep goin’ haha

Vega VS Zangief

art, anime, drawing, street fighter, zangief, vega

Scratchwork Topic: Street Fighter

Time: All fucking day!

Using 3d for the background again…picked an angle that would make the gates cast shadows all over, but in retrospect it might be too much haha Zangief looks like a Spider-Man wanna-be or something. Pretty happy with how it turned out though…despite it taking forever to make.
