Shadow Rift Ships by AdamRoush
Shadow Rift Ships

These are the final ships I designed for our most recent real time strategy game, Shadow Rift.

For one of our previous games, Darkfire Galaxies, we had painted the ships realistically. But it made it hard to see a lot of the cool little details we had drawn into them. But by doing these ships in more of a cel-shaded style, I think it made it a lot easier to see those details. It probably also helped that we created them closer to in-game scale, whereas in Darkfire, some of my ships' psd files were.... to put it lightly, colossal. Like, you-could-have-printed-a-billboard-with-them huge. And that didn't translate well to a small scale. 

If you have the time and want to check out the game, go here

Cleaned up my gallery a little bit, putting my old stuff in an aptly named folder, and replaced my concept art with nicer looking images. Same stuff, different background.

Edit 3/16/2015: I added color and cel shading to her expressions. I've been wanting to do this for a while, and finally got around to doing it. Though I really should be working on other things...

I haven't designed a character like this is quite some time. And it is immensely fun, developing a new character. I'm going to be developing her further, just as a small personal project. This is the sort of thing that makes me excited. Like trying out different poses/ different expressions that actually fit the character [and not just making the generic ones]. So for this, I wanted to establish her design, and explore a few expressions that get her cocky and aggressive nature across, but while also showing off a few others, like surprise, exhaustion, or laughter.

Also, why is it so hard to draw a dog's face? That long snout just gets in the way, covers up the other eye, and makes expressions, especially from downward angles, kinda awkward.
Not really news, but check out our new game Darkfire Galaxies.
It's still in development, and we're making a ton of tweaks, but it's playable and pretty fun. If I do say so myself.

Otherwise, the car I bought a mere year and a half ago keeps falling apart. If I might recommend, never get a German/ British car. They pretty much just fall apart, especially when bought used with over 60k miles. I went with an 07 Mini Cooper S, which was a huge mistake. While fun, I could've gotten a significantly better car for the amount I've spent in repairs. Learning some lesson the really hard way.

Anyways, needed to get rid of that old journal.
