The brief to myself was to unleash the shackles (what few I have) and just create something for the sheer hell of it. As I was about to release the new Fully Illustrated site, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to create some art to celebrate it, so the brief to myself was to simply create something that made me smile and could tie into the process of digital creation.
I'd been playing around with a few techniques for a while along these lines and wanted to pursue them a little further, so I dedicated a big fat chunk of time to doing just that. I soon came upon this idea and started to flesh it out into the three images you see here. It was really nice to create something like this purely for fun, it made me feel like an artist again :)
Gaming Dead is geared toward the darker side of the games industry, the horror genre! The site needed a new, grim character based brand and a creepy menacing site design too.
It was a HUGE honour to be asked to redesign Klei’s new site for 2011, after creating the original design around 4 years ago!
