Happy New Year!

Taking a bit of a break from my Eduardo posts (I will return to that again) I'd like to start showing more non-Eduardo work into this blog. I've been doing some concept work for personal projects, and recently started making art for someone else's game, an unannounced project.

It's a sidescrolling game, and the first thing I did was create some bricks. I just had the idea "bricks" and went from there, with no real idea how everything would end up. It's a fun and adventurous way of making art at times, though usually I have a clearer idea of what I'd like the finished project to look like before I start. This time though I only saw one step ahead the whole way through.

I finished the middleground first, thought it could use some vines, then started work on a suitable background. Everything was done on computer obviously, but I used textures that I created with traditional media and layered them together. Similar to the proccess I used in some levels in Eduardo but more refined, and using many more layers.

Below is the background I made using a lot of the same textures.

I love creating art for games so if any of you reading this are programmers in need of an artist for your game, drop me a line and I'd love to talk. I'm going to be creating art for my portfolio anyhow, so it might as well be for an actual game.

So, working on an unannounced project. Can you tell us at least the platform?

It's a prototype for PC. :)

Not my project, just doing the art.
