Ashley from Assassin's Creed Memories

One other character that I enjoyed making for Assassin's Creed was Ashley your guide into the incredibly complexed tutorial to the game. Below is the rough gif pitch I made of her along with some of her final art.

AC Dump

My time at Aeria/Playnext Games was fun. I got to work on a Assassins Creed game and there is one character in particular that I enjoyed making concept art for. Should Ubisoft ever go to Japan with their series in a grander game I hope they reference our Hattori Hanzo into the lore. The image to the right of the rough is the final and wasn't painted by me but I did oversee final and did cleanup. Also below are some other rough card description art that I did. I have tons of these but many are heavy in the photobash/production realm and its difficult to take whole credit for that kind of art for me.

Champs Dump

The following are concept art and game art that I did for a game called Champs. This is a Chibbet the "cute" race of the game that made. The first one is the ground base character. The second is a Shrubber who was one of the middling characters I think. I build the entire race and rank structure for these guys. I used to joke that we should have ditched all the human characters of the game and made an entire game based off of these guys and we would have been more successful. I still stand by that.
Below are the elven race I helped with. I pretty much did all the female elves along with a few of the male ones. I was given the name of Sun Elves and that was all I was given to concept for them. So I pretty much build their whole lore off of that name. They worship the sun so they should all be tanned skinned. What also resides in the sky with the sun? Well birds can fly... so maybe they have a kinship or worship birds like angels are to heaven? They would make the Phoenix their highest of the mythical great birds since it is made of fire (sun) and immortal. Apollo was a sun god in greek mythology so why not make some of their top warriors archers like Apollo? I also made them a more Matriarchal society with a Amazon feel. Since they admire flight so much some of their high priestesses will learn to levitate like Yogis claim to do at high level of meditation.
Below are some Ghouls that I made.

Valor Dump 2

Here are some of my favorite characters I painted for the Valor game.
Here are some environments I designed.

Valor Dump 1

Below is some art for the game Valor I did a few years ago.
This was from the intro of the game that I storyboarded and wrote. I didn't design the girl but painted her facial expressions. The little fella below I designed and made all the art animations.

Rough sketches and What could have been... (Part 5)

This was a card I did for Wizards of The Coast. I remember the description of a defaced ancient city taken over by a savage people. Their symbol was and eye surrounded by flame. So I figured why not make the flames of the symbol like those cave spit paintings or blood finger painting. At first I made the city more Romanesque but they didn't like it. So I changed it to be more gothic in look.

Rough sketches and What could have been... (Part 4)

From what I remember of this guy VanCleef is he is a hero Pirate who eventually dies. I was supposed to make a scene that would foreshadow his death. I wanted to make something haunting including the Jolly Roger flag. My first sketch I think was nice and creepy but maybe too creepy like he was already dead.
I then went to what eventually would become the final. Here is the pencil thumb to sketch.

Rough sketches and What could have been... (Part 3)

For part 3 I'm going back to Warcraft I did back in 2012. To this day I've never played a game of Warcraft but I knew these guys were important characters so I wanted to treat them a special as I could. I was so excited to get going on these guys that I turned in my roughs of them early when got the sad news that they mistakenly gave me the wrong guys to paint. So now these guys finally get to see the light of day. Who knows maybe it was a good thing that I never made these guys officially. Below are the thumbs and the roughs of these two cards.
