Justin Carver

Sword-Blade is a personal passion project, something I hope to develop into a game some day. It's a 3D sidescroller brawler, set in a post-apocalyptic high fantasy world. This here guy is one of the main characters. His name is Sir Justin Carver, and he's a kind of paladin.

No art, just games

I'm not a big fan of sport games in general, but when they're done right, they can be so much fun!

We had an arcade cabinet back in university, and I used to play Wind Jammers as much as I did puzzle bobble. It was awesome, and I actually managed to beat it in single player! I've never been as sweaty playing a multiplayer game!

In high school, we had a TV in our classroom (intended for educational purposes, yeah right), and a classmate brought his Nintendo 64. We played International Superstar Soccer 64 every break, every chance we got. The four of us were pretty evenly matched, and we had a lot of classical duels. We made our classmates who weren't playing very mad, because we got very involved, loud and shouted a lot. Good times.

Wave Race 64. I rarely see water as beautiful as this in games, even to this day. The music is stellar.

I'm such a geek ;)

influence map meme

I also did my influence map :D
 Just practice. Poop.

Pretty much the design I was after, but the pose and expression are just too rubbish to justify a rendering. I need to draw him again.

Done, uuuggh, Tree of Death!

Yeah, I guess it's wrapped up. Definitely a challenge for my patience :) Learned some new things. I guess I could bring together some sort of step by step tutorial thing if ya'll want it. Cheerio!

Illustration Practice

 I'm not comfortable with environments and composition, so I'm practicing :) Revisiting an old theme which I first explored in 2007. Still long ways to go, lots of problems with tangents and depth etc. Just a hotch-potch of lines, but hopefully will get better with color and rendering :) Also, I don't have a lightbox, or a big piece of paper, so I just worked on different pieces of paper, with a coherent vision in mind, pasting them together in photoshop afterwards (Polygonal lasso tool Hell!). I'm looking forward to painting this! Cheers!
