Title: Yo.
Post by: moresco on March 18, 2011, 06:14:00 AM
Hi people, I'm new around here.  In my spare time I make 2D old school adventure games, epic acoustic concept rock, web design, industrial concept design, and god knows what else.  I also teach guitar and voice for a living.  I'm 20 lbs of creativity in a 10 lb bag.  I like candlelit dinners in windy caverns, and more!

Other than that, not much to tell.  Ok bye.

Sure can...where to start?  I suppose music.

I'm only working on one game at the moment, and have been for ages...I rebooted the project three times during the process of learning to draw.  Right now it's definitely on the path to becoming an actual game, but I just restarted a week ago or so.  Anyhow, Mesa LE (Police Quest reboot / inspired):

For websites, I really only have two projects and I tend to work on them only rarely.  They usually don't get finished...oh well.

For art or design, I do have a few things but not a huge amount of stuff uploaded, just because I am not confident in my abilities yet.  I do a ton of sketching and occasionally I'll throw something together, but usually I get frustrated when I don't know how to complete a task in perspective or something like that.  Anyway, here's what I have up (none of these are finished):


Insect fighter-jet sketch

some Alien I environment idea:

Alien I Mid-City concept.  This has changed dramatically from this picture, but I'm going to finish it completely before uploading the latest incarnation:

Anyway, there's more in various corners of the internet, and a lot more on my machine here...maybe later I'll start a thread and post some art.

That is correct, not dead at all.  I should apologize in that I spent most of the last year working on my art and working on character design and the look of the game, instead of the actual game itself.  My original plan was to just paint the photo-style backgrounds and reuse them, but having scraped the idea of a straight Police Quest 2 remake, I figure it would be better to approach everything from a clean slate.

Neat stuff!

You might be interested in posting the Express Your Creativity! (http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?board=68.0) forum as well. :)

This is really great work here. Please post more of your stuff.

I especially like the Insect fighter-jet sketch. It reminds me of the submarine seen in The Phantom Menace.

Ahh, I think that's some of Feng's work.  It's cool stuff! =D

I have an updated version of the insect fighter, different angle with a new tail among other little things.  I did it on a very large piece of paper, it's hardcore, you can see the cone of vision and measure-points, measure-bars, all these crazy lines are still visible.  So I'll post that in the creative forum when I start a thread there for more artwork.  I'm also going to take that same sketch into photoshop and render it as a scene for my Alien I story. Definitely going to post more, just need time....I only started doing this art at the beginning of the year, so I don't have much yet, and I'm not super fast at it yet either.
