Line of Defence
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 :) The brief was simple, make a new kick ass website to showcase this epic new game!
I spent some time upfront with 3000AD to prepare the ideal assets to make the most of the site, and what they sent me didn’t disappoint! I was lavished with loads of hi quality renders giving me endless possibilities for the new design. As I do with all my sites, I spend A LOT of time creating the main scene, which is essentially matte painted to a large degree. I bring together all the assets I want to use, choose an environment render and start to work on creating a killer scene. I generally spend about a day creating the main scene, adding in depth, lighting, extra texture and fine tuning the composition. With that done, it sets the tone for the whole site. And as my company name states, everything is fully illustrated, the main nav, and site elements all get a lot of hand painted details. With the main scene complete the page content flowed together naturally and it was signed off almost immediately :) The rest of site was a joy to work on too as each page just seemed to slot together perfectly. Truly marvellous project!!!! I’m looking forward to working with 3000AD again!
To celebrate the launch of Fully Illustrated V3.0 I wanted to create 3 individual pieces of digital art, focusing on the different stages of artistic creation. Yeah that's all a bit faffy isn't, I just wanted to make something pretty, here's image 2.
Creating the brand for Cocos 2D was great fun and it was great to give something back to the company that gives so much to the industry!
