When the guys at Little Guy Games got in touch to tell me about their project, I was somewhat excited after seeing their screenshots and preview video! The game looked awesome! Needless to say, they needed a site to reflect the quality and intensity of the game.
As the game had a cool old school futuristic look to it, I had to ensure that the site reflected this, and for anyone who knows me will vouch, this was my perfect cup of tea! I was supplied with the character art and branding but realised that I had to turn these awesome characters into some kind of eye-catching scene, so I set about creating the piece that you see at the top of the page. This was made up of numerous textures, mock 3D and some intricate lighting. This was tooooo much fun! With the feature image in place, it was time to flesh out the content in a complementary style. Cool project!!
When the guys at 3000AD got in touch showing off their new game, Line of Defence, it instantly caught my eye as a project I’d love to be part of! I love just about anything futuristic/sci-fi, especially when there’s mechs, guns and robots involved :)
This was a great opportunity that arose late 2008, where I was approached by the publishers of this new creative inspiration book series, the Creative Unity, to appear in their first volume as none other than their featured designer!
