[Progress] First 2D landscape in over a decade. | C&C greatly appreciated.

Work In Progress / 15 September 2020

One of my closest friends lent me her iPad recently so I can experiment with Procreate. I took this opportunity to really try and hone a skill I have always lacked. I've always had a love for environment art and pen & ink drawing so it's a bit embarrassing that I was so bad at 2D landscapes.

That embarrassment lead me to try and actually push myself to take a pen and paper drawing and flesh it out digitally.

This is a simple blog documenting that process.

Pencil sketch.

  Took me forever to figure out what I wanted to do with the foreground and background.

  When in doubt, MORE TREES!

  Okay, the trees were a bad idea. They took forever. I literally drew every leaf and then erased to get the shapes I wanted.

Flipped it because I got tired of looking at it. Also added noise to give the ink a more paperlike feel.  

  Next up, More shading and background work. Stay Tuned! Also... HELP!

Core Alpha Environment Art Update: September 1st 2020

News / 01 September 2020

As one of only 4 Environment Artists at Manticore Games, I get the great opportunity to R&D, create, test, and share a large amount of varied assets and modular tilesets for anyone to use as they wish in order to create their own unique experiences. In this new patch update to Core, some of the other artists and I worked diligently to bring everyone a brand new set of Sci-fi objects; 109 to be exact!

All available right now at coregames.com!

Check out all the patch notes here to see the entire list of assets including SFX, VFX, decals, and more!

Below is a small environment I put together in about 16 hours using the new assets.
