There’s a Threadless contest going on for best Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle design. I used the frustrating underwater section of the first NES TMNT game as seen below, for inspiration.


Took like 5 hours, but only uses 4 colors because the green background is the color of the shirt!




Whoa, rough sketch was rough!


Design will cover entire front of shirt for maximum tackiness.

commander video reporting for duty

Gaijin is a cool company that makes cool games. I owned all their stuff as downloadable games, and I recently got the compilation that released for 3DS. Their games are always simple in concept, but with solid gameplay, trippy visuals and great music. Runner has always been in the forefront for my favorite of the six within the collection, and it was neat to see Runner 2 at PAX East, but I didn’t get time to play it do to the sheer craziness of the event.

I had an entry idea for a contest they were running back when Bit Trip Saga first came out, but I just couldn’t get it together to finish it up in time. I just kept plugging away at it little by little, and I think I’m finally am done with it. I wanted to integrate the titles for all six games of the Bit Trip series, so that they formed a running Commander Video, who is the main character and sort of mascot for the company.

It’s been too long, too long. Been doing a bunch-O-stuff however, so next post should definitely be before December, contrary to my current posting habits. Here’s some of the art-things I been working on up till now. I made some avatars for my interweb peeps, and I figured I might as well cross post ’em here, so they can be seen outside of the itty-bitty art forums. It’s a sorta art exchange so I got a bunch of neato images from people in return, I just need to gather it all up in some manner so I can marvel at all the fancy goods I hauled in. Feel free to mosey over to the thread itself if you please, though fair warning it does devolve to complete madness somewhere around page one.

Heres some of the things I drew for people who I know.

I also recently learned how to make animated GIF’s, which is weird because I really like animation, and they’re super easy to do. Time consuming for sure, but fun to mess around with. Look at em go!

I’ve been going to a lot of movies (Machete!) and shows (Brickhouse, Stone Church, Middle East, Big Easy), not to mention no shortage of excellent videogames that have come out lately. (Shank, Cave Story, Bit Trip, Castle Crashers, DQ9, Prof Layton!!) So while I haven’t been drawing quite as much lately, I did come up with a proof of concept image for a proposed mock-videogame. It was for a contest that revolved around the idea that you were presenting your game idea to a company, and could only bring with you one single image to get your point across, to sell them on the idea. I think my idea would probably scare most people.

I could explain how I think the game would work, but instead I’ll let the image do the work. The full image is a bit too H-scroll damaging, so click the image below to get redirected.

And I also finished this design for The Cow’s Ass, which I started like 4 years ago. I guess you could say it was on the backburner for awhile. Maybe they’ll use it for a shirt eventually? Or better yet a hoodie! I like my new job but I still miss this place.

I’ve been working on a lot of illustrations and designs for a campaign that will include CD’s, posters, and flyers, so expect an update on that very soon. It’s almost done!

Super Street Fighter 4 is coming. In the meantime don’t pull a Blanka and try to fish that poptart out of the toaster with your eating utensil. It will not end well.

Final Fantasy 13: a numerical comic

Posted in comic, videogame with tags on 04/14/2010 by g00ba

I still haven’t played the new Final Fantasy yet, but after seeing numerous previews of it, I felt compeled to make a quick comic about it. It’s a thumbnail so click it, duh!

My initial thoughts upon seeing what the battle system looked like was “this looks pretty confusing,” and “why are there numbers everywhere?” I think pretty much anything outside the realm of the original Dragon Warrior seems incomprehensible to me. Thank goodness for 3D Dot Heroes. Want.

5-2-10 EDIT: Well I gave FF13 a shot but yeah, this game is unfortunately not for me.

Been a really long while since I posted anything over here, so hopefully I can remedy that soon. I do have a lot of things I’ve been working on, and even more in the process. Here’s a recent project just for the fun of it, two of my favorite games mashed together, three if you have eagle eyes.

I took a few work in progress shots while I was working on this, so click below to see it go from concept to completion…
