Pearl's Peril concepts

Hellooooo! ...............Oops, it's been a LONG while since I last updated :x Sorry about that, been super busy, but at least now I can share some of the work I've been doing at Wooga on Pearl's Peril. :) Now, pleeeease take into consideration a lot of this is older stuff - I can't show all my snazzy latest stuff, as those chapters aren't released yet!

These are concepts for the environments for the hidden object game, Pearl's Peril - most were done in roughly 8 hours (including research, plannings etc) These concepts were then sent on to the outsourcers who made them in 3D and then overpainted and placed in textures, for a more realistic look. We could of course do it here, but our outsourcers do a fab job, and it would take us way too much time. :) And ofc these are only a selection of them; there's way more but I don't like them enough to show, hehe.

Pearl's Peril is a really lovely colourful game, so we can go quite wild with colours (which I LOVE) - so high contrasts, complimentaries and intensity, yay! As more chapters get released, I'll be able to update more work (and you'll see it get better ;) so stay tuned!

My very first scene - and I had to blow up Pearl's beloved plane, aaaww

App background concepts!

Oops, been awhile again since my last update, but I will use the 'recently moved to Berlin' excuse ;D Posting some work from last year - I freelanced for a company called Finger Food Studios in Vancouver for a few weeks, helping create different themed backgrounds for an app they were creating (for EA) It since took a different direction, but I thought to post the concepts for it anyway. :)

So in the middle of the screen was going to be a video, and around it a different theme. The lower part of the screen had to be relatively flat and empty for item placement.
First off we have a 'fantasy' themed one:

Next is a Western themed one.

Next a mountainous footpath.

Next a country barn.

 Next a golf course.

 And lastly, a sci-fi themed pic. :) 

I did a few more, but these are the ones I'm happiest with. ;) They're well over 6 months old tho, could be vastly improved. : |

Also big news - Pearl's Peril, the game I've been helping out on, has been released!! It's free to play through Facebook, so why not give it a try! Click here, go on - http://www.wooga.com/games/pearlsperil/ And congrats to the *awesome* team for doing such a fab job!

Crysis 3 concepts

Allo! A lot happened since my last post! I now live in Berlin and work for Wooga, wheee! We are making fantastic games, take a lot at the up and coming stuff:


I'm working on Pearl's Peril - you're gonna love it!

Anyways, the point of this post was to post some of my old Crysis 3 work I did on the very early stages of C3 whilst I was still at Crytek. Please take into consideration this stuff of mine is 10 years old (blaaah) and I did a lot more than just the examples I've shown here, but these are the ones I'm still vaguely happy with. :P Sooooo, enjoy!

Overgrown Pinger attacking a tank...the poor guy died escaping ;)

The Heavy enemy was always my fave - so stubby

Dramatic death-pose ;p

There was an idea for a little spider bot thing, like a boid that would run around

A more finished version...

Bit different, but yesterday I was walking along the main shopping street here in Frankfurt near the Christmas market, and was stopped by a lady and photographer, who were very interested in my hat and why I chose it! Well, it's an animal hat with fluffy ears, what's not to like?? Anyways, they were from the German national newspaper the Bild, and the pic was in todays paper, yay! (and damn I shouldn't have given my real age, haha) Should I be proud of this or not?? ;)

Card illustrations for 5th Planet Games!

Hey guys and gals! Sorry I haven't posted in awhile, but I've been busy doing a freelance job for the super cool 5th Planet Games, working on cards/items for Dawn of the Dragons and Clash of the Dragons! Since it's a very fast paced process, the cards are released online already pretty quickly, so I can post them here, plus a higher res version to see better. There'll be a few more to come once they're released, enjoy! Some of the cards I drew and coloured, others just coloured, and others I just added new elements to. :)
