alright, it's only been 10months since my last journal update, so i figure i should maybe give people a heads up.
so i haven't been posting art lately because because i got a job at a gaming studio called Blue Frog Gaming. we're a small iOS/ facebook game studio in akron, ohio. it's an awesome place, full of fun people, challenging work, and a very easy-going/ relaxed atmosphere. and there are little poison dart frogs everywhere. they're our security system./joking
so we recently released a new Facebook game called Stardrift Empires. it's a sci-fi cause and effect game, where you collect resources, level up your stuff to unlock new ships, buildings, technologies, robots, etc. y'all should check it out (: [link] . worked on it as a concept artist and illustrator, along with 4 other illustrators and designers. it's a redux of our other facebook game, Starfleet Commander, but with much better everything. it even got featured on kotaku! [link] which is pretty cool; pretty excited about that. it's been a really fun project, learned tons of stuff: new painting techniques, color, light, depth, effects, etc. love doing these types of paintings. i'm gonna upload my work from that when i get the time.
it's a pretty fun game. [i had nothing to do with game mechanics or programming, just did art for it.] it can take a little time to warm up to, but once you do, you may find yourself surprisingly addicted to it.
also, a little while back we released Polar Puzzles for the iOS platform [iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch] which is, well, a puzzle game. with penguins. did some illustrations and animations for that. fun stuff.
so yeah, because of the job i've had little time to do personal work. i find that after 8hours of painting, i need a break. and that my weekends end up being consumed by gaming or movies, though usually graced by some light doodling.
yeah, so that why i've seemed a little dead on here.
