Character Artists! Over Here!

Post  Murderoscopy on Sat Jan 05, 2008 11:17 pm

This thread is for the Character Artists to begin posting their work so that the other team members can have a look at them, and so that they can all share ideas. And ya know, so that I can keep tabs on you all. But to be fair, I'll start by posting a few images I've come up with while doodling during classes. I look forward to seeing everything you guys can do. AND! Don't just post finished pieces, sketches and thumbnails are more than appreciated! AND DON'T THROW ANYTHING AWAY! We'll need it all for the art bible.


This is a chainsaw psychopath named Chainsaw Earl, but unfortunately he misplaced his chainsaw, so now he's a manic depressive.

This is the Creature from the Beige Lagoon. He's afraid of both the dark and the water, so he's currently rather S.O.L.

This is Eight Ball. He resents how poorly he was constructed, and is looking to acquire a better form so that he can live out his dream: to become a chartered accountant.

This Jimmy. Maybe if we don't talk about him, he'll go away...

And lastly Patty 'O Furniture, the unlucky leprochaun. While not strictly a monster, Patty is still willing to do whatever it takes to get lucky.

This is Abe hes a mummy whos got TP for wrapping and has the rolls on varios finers, legs etc. Unfortunately it was a very cheap non absorbant brand and his brains were not kept safe so hes a little....special





This is Greg he was a pencil pushernow hes just an undead moron he cant really remember what happened to him and tends to wander.... (Another version on the way where he has a large muscular forearm tied on at elbo for strength)

Well, here is some of my work so far. Not much new since friday since I've been struggling with level design, but I gonna change that by tomorrow. Anyhoo, these are the characters that have been picked out as possible choices so far.



This is the Tikiman. Hes an aspiring witch doctor (though, he's not very good at it, he's learning slowly...). He has recently run out of ingredients, and has wondered into a nearby graveyard to replenish his stock.



This is my nameless robot skeleton. Not only is he not a living, breathing human-being - but he isn't even a real skeleton! Not knowing his purpose, he seeks companionship from his fellow dead, but fears that ultimately, he will be rejected.



This is Care-crow. He has recently been stationed as the local scare-crow of the fields across the graveyard. Seeing the restless dead bash each-other from across the road has made him a tad bit jealous though. With a bucket on each foot, this gardening specialist-of-a-scarecrow sets out into the graveyard to prove that he is far from slow.



This is my nameless caretaker. What does he take care of you ask? The riff-raff that happen to mess up his graveyard. (Third-party character)


Here are the rest of my artworks so far. I apologize for some low quality scans. my sketchbook got a little wet and didn't want to cooperate.

Scan one
Scan two
Scan three

awesome, awesome work, you guys. a lot of this stuff seems right on the money for the misfit monsters theme, and THE ART STYLE IS T3H 1337. my favourites so far are the carecrow and patty - both actually made me chuckle, even before I read the character description.

keep up the awesome ideas Smile

EDIT: He went to school with MegaMan and Dr. Light's class was too boring so he left and found a graveyard to explore instead! Well the real reason is everyone else had a cannon on their arm but he had ... the swiss army knife...

Yes kevin, your backstories seem a tad bit on the horrific side. Im not sure how Max feels about it, but you may want to try and lighten things up a bit. Try to make them a bit more quirky. (Unless by "raped my ass" you really meant "mauled me", in which case you might want to word it better) :p Also, i'd love to see more fleshed out drawings of that possessed tree thing you were talking about before.

damnit..

edit: Poke-A-Haunt-Us- two forms possessed together, a dead guy's hands and head and a tree that came to life that took that guy's head for a head.. and his arms because the tree's branches can't do anything! Got clavicles clamping the tree branches at the end there.

sorry I don't know how to draw vines exactly.. or roots encasing around the head.

I forgot to mention my basic idea. I dont know if there were any plans for the kind of thing but if he was a sort of 3rd party character that would 'guide' players he just sort of chills at the graveyard at nights likes to do things VIA music etc...

Lots of great ideas in here. I really like the idea of a gargoyle covered in graffiti.

Concept sketches, take two:
First, we have the latest concepts for characters that have been axed for the meantime.



Then we have the caretaker and his skulls (as per request from the environment artists).



And finally we have some more sketches of good ol' carecrow.




More stuff to come.
