Gaming is a huge passion of mine, and I have found it an incredibly fun exercise to insert myself and others into the style of particular video games. It broadens my thought process to find new ways to do things I might not otherwise think of, and also shows that I have the ability to apply myself and my art style to fit in with what has already been established however is needed. Below are a few examples, broken out by video game. Please note: none of my work is official art work and is not affiliated with the games mentioned at all.
Darkest Dungeon is a Red Hook Studios video game with a very specific style of art. I was recently taken with not only the game, but also the way the characters were designed. Deciding to try my hand, I chose a fellow to Darkest Dungeon-ify. I used a a combination of thick and thin lines, deep black shadows, and a textured Photoshop brush in order to achieve the right look. Find progress below, done in Adobe Photoshop.
This is an original Red Hook Studios character that I used as reference to base the character off of and make sure I got the right feel.
BURLY MEN AT SEA
Burly Men At Sea is a Brain&Brain story based point and click adventure. It has a very unique style with flat, muted colors, simplified shapes, and a playful approach to negative space. Its absolutely stunning. I used Adobe Illustrator and the pen tool to crate myself in the same style.
