 Here are some new additions to the Champions game.
We've bred Raptors.

and concocted werewolves
A smelly Ogre

Last week, I worked on a massive dragon. It has been a very cool working on this game. I've bee working on this game's art for almost two years. It has helped me improved my skills a lot.



I began by making the dragon's head. After making the basic silhouette, I added detail.
The dragon had this cool spiked tail. After that I animated the dragon's flying, attacks, death, stun animation and idle animation.

 The dragon has been my best art piece yet. Here is a preview of the finished dragon with the raptor.

Don't know what the trainer pass is?

Membership has evolved into.... Trainer Pass! Get it today!
A while back I was talking about having a membership plan that you guys and gals could subscribe to and get some great member's only features. The plan at the time was to make it a low monthly fee but have changed my mind since then. It will be a one time fee and you will have the features activated forever!

So let's talk about what you get:
  • Increased chance for Shiny/Shadow Pokemon to appear in the wild
  • No ads while you play the game
  • Get a copy of shiny giveaway Pokemon automatically every week
  • Faster Breeding - Breed with only one visit instead of 2, essentially breed something everyday!
  • Faster Leveling - Get twice the experience on every battle!
  • Weekly Giveaways for pass holders only

 I've been keeping busy with new changes. Adapting to everything life throws at me. In the meantime, I also work for Sam & Dan Games, llc. I make graphic art for some of their games. The current game I'm working on is Champions Last Stand (formerly known as Champions Tower Defense).


Last week, I worked on an ogre and a werewolf. It was pretty cool making these creatures. It has been a very interesting ride working on this game. The game has a long history, known to a select few. It has been in development for almost a couple of years. I've been in charge of making the art from the start. In my opinion, it has been my best work so far. Quite an extensive project.

This week I began working on a raptor, for the game. Yes, the game has raptors! I started with the head and ended with it's foot. I made sure it look menacing, but still in the style of the game. Using the same lines as the other creatures.


After making the basic silhouette, I added detail to the raptor. Much like camouflage, the raptor has various shades of green and blue, very natural organic feel. She has a mean temper. Champions should know to respect this creature if ever they meet in combat.

 My sister was having a conversation with my wife and I about this new shake that help people lose weight. How she has to post her progress online to gain followers and so on. I suddenly realized, that she was doing what I do with this "career" I have chosen. Sharing my progress as an artist. Growing my audience of "fans". Giving away prizes to attract more people. It's hard, I'm tired and I want to sleep.


Yesterday I posted this image on Twitter and Instagram. About a dozen people liked it, some retweeted it. This is what I do. I make these creatures for my brother's game. I spend hours trying to make it work. I shared the image to show a beginning of my workday.


After I finished the ogre, I went out with my family (Above) to celebrate my wife's birthday. To be honest, I didn't have a good time, I wanted to make her happy, but all I could do was sit on a park bench and watch her play with our son (not in pic). I was in bad shape. We got Ice cream, they went to bed. I sat down back to work.


I began work on the second creature- a werewolf. I twitter-ed this image of my "work in progress". Time flew and the werewolf came alive.




It took some time to make the wolf's head. Once I got it down, I could animate it. I got done at about 2am. 

It's 2:30am now and I'm blogging about my work. I feel accomplished. But what did I accomplish? I made two tiny game graphics. I blew it with my wife though.

 I was reading in a Art Magazine that I shouldn't shy away from showing my progress to people around me. Let them see how I make art. So in order to show you guys and gals my progress I'm going to, you guessed it, blog about it. Here are some sketches for my current projects.




 
These are sketches for a new game I'm developing.




It has something to do with Dwarves.



Next up r some sketches for a fantasy story I've been working on since 2004. The adventures of Oxiliant and Olmate. This was originally going to be a novel (lol). Later I considered turning it into a film. Then it was a cartoon. Now it's a comic. Who knows what it will be next.








 This is not a sketch. Courtesy of Albert Viñas. (Vine Films)












These images do not reflect the projects' final look and are subject to change.
