prototype killswitch

seven weapons and one arm lighter.

Once upon a time, I started working on a game with a friend.  It didn’t end up getting finished, but I had so much fun making this (rough as) pixel art anyway.  I hope one day it gets resurrected, maybe? But until then, here’s some zombies, yay.

(with a tip of the hat to master pixel artist Paul Robertson in the zombie girl’s eyes)

I don’t even remember how this joke started or what it means any more, but it sounds kinda badass, so I’ll leave it up to your imagination.For monkeh and emmajeans.

2014 LET’S GO PEOPLE

MOTTO FOR 2014: 
Do Shit Properly Or Not At All (aka ‘Go Hard or Go Home’)

TO DO LIST FOR 2014:

- properly do up at least three excellent brand identity projects that I can submit to design blogs

- try to win some kind of award at work

- work on dynamic lighting in my paintings

- get some serious work done on the novel I’m writing with my friend

- get some serious work done on the iPhone game I’m working on with my other friend

- get as close at humanly possible to 100% in Bravely Default. 

Uh, when I write it all down that’s a lot of things - but fuck it, let’s own 2014. WHO’S WITH ME?

"Oops."

Honestly this was way less sad when I started - I was trying for a sassy skeleton girl, but it took a turn when I fixed some anatomy things.  Oh well…?  Click for full-size, if you like that sort of thing.
Thanks to mactasia and himesan for their invaluable “wtf is up with her legs?!” help. 
Video game character design Mark #1
Remember this girl? I decided it’d be fun to make a whole character based on the portrait - then for some reason I got all inspired & decided I’m going to make two more, then try to make a video game.  Because why not. ONWARDS TO NO FREE TIME.

Another piece for backgroundscenery, yo.
Trickier than the last one, by far - water and sand, blargh!  I’m looking forward to when I’m more practiced doing all of this and I can start to put things together more from my imagination rather than reference.  Then there’ll be, like, giant sea monsters and stuff.  Maybe bleached whale bones. Speaking of which, reference used.

Poster for Chris Leben’s stand-up comedy show, Accidental Pornographer.  Lettering by me, photography by the super-talented Amelia Dowd.
This was fun, and although there’s a bunch of stuff I would probably finesse about the actual letterforms given more time, I think that there’s some charm in the, uh, rustic-ness of it anyway, perhaps!
