This was one huge and thoroughly enjoyable project! When I was tasked with creating the entire virtual world of Happy Oasis I was excited to say the least. Its huge! Maps, landscapes, trees, plants, animals, characters, animations, props, buildings, you name it. There was SO much to create! As you can imagine, this took quite a few months of some seriously intense illustration and animation. I’ve really been enjoying all these culturally diverse projects of late, as after creating Caves site focused mainly for the Japanese market, to move onto a project directed at the Middle Eastern market was a marvellous creative challenge. It’s so nice to work outside of what you know from time to time as it really expands you as a creative. Amazing fun. The game has been a HUGE hit in the Middle East and has seen coverage on the BBC news and Forbes to mention just a few. The impact has been huge. It’s so great to see the game doing so well!
This was SUCH a wonderful project! I love illustrating characters, but this grizzly bear for Cascadia Games has to be one of my all times faves!
As Microsoft Games Studios were renaming and re-branding their Vancouver based development studio to Black Tusk Studios (to coincide with the development of a brand new Xbox exclusive IP), I was tasked with creating their all new online presence to join the action. Rather exciting!
