Come check out the art! I’ll have prints for sale.
The Bone-Chilling Tale of the Sleepdrawing Hand (from Vine)
Starting TODAY, you can buy Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-bit Land for the Nintendo 3DS! This was the last game I worked on at WayForward and I’m really proud of it. I was the art director for this project.
This silly thing, by the way, is a piece of concept art I made as a mock-up for a possible booklet illustration, based on 80s console art (we ended up not using it but if we did, the final would have been AWESOME). We did our best to create a true love letter to 8-bit gaming in the art direction of the game, not just making a pixel game and calling it “8-bit” (which is a mistake made all too often) and I think you’ll see it in the animation and gameplay.
I hope you buy and enjoy!
My submission for this month’s LoopdeLoop, based on the theme “hallucinations.”
Hi! You should head over to the Earwolf store and buy this magic: A K.N.I.F.E.G.R.A.B. T-shirt featuring an illustration by yours truly! From the legendary “Time Bobby" episode of Comedy Bang! Bang!, featuring "Andrew Lloyd Webber" (Paul F. Tompkins) and "Fourvel the orphan" (Bobby Moynihan). I haven’t seen the shirt in person yet, but Paul has, and he said it looks beautiful.
Here’s a little animation test I did for Shantae a year or so ago when I was at WayForward. We were coming up with a look for a high def gameplay Shantae sprite, adapted from her pixel sprite. Matt ultimately settled on a different design for the final look, but it’s fun to see some of the unused stuff from the archives. I’m fond of this bit of animation.
WayForward is currently running a kickstarter campaign for Shantae HD, by the way. It’s in its final week so go help out my dear old work buddies and help them reach their stretch goals! You KNOW you’d love to see more beautifully animated 2D cut scenes (see above gif) in modern games.
Tumblr is weird about gif length (even if it’s within the 1MB file size limit), so see the full loop here.
