DRIVECLUB VISUAL DEVELOPMENT



Here are a few Driveclub images I did very early on in the project to act as a Visual benchmark for where we wanted the game to be on release. The cars were built by the Vehicle team and were rendered in game, the backgrounds were created from photo reference with FX and a grading pass added to complete the images.

DRIVECLUB Vehicles


 
Finally posting some of the work I did on PS4 title DRIVECLUB, here are a few vehicles for the India track, I was asked to create designs influenced by the wonderfully colourful vehicles in reference photos.

IRON MAN : GAMMA PROTOCOL

The Hulkbuster fan film I've been working on now has a name...Iron Man : Gamma Protocol.

I've been busy working on various elements of the production including the logo above as well as designing some cool technology to be featured in the final film ... but that's all I'm allowed to say for now :-)  

The big news is that it also has a trailer featuring great work from Anthony McGrath and Mark Cushley, so follow the link and check it out : Gamma Protocol Trailer

HULKBUSTER

 

Here's an early  paint over I did for the Hulkbuster short film, this was created to determine the amount of damage inflicted upon the suit as well as seeing what it would look like against an appropriate background. 

A wonderful 3D mesh by Anthony McGrath was used as a basis for this. More film details can be found here : https://www.facebook.com/ironmanmkz

ALIEN GIRL

I think I was influenced by a recent re-watch of Guardians of the Galaxy when I did this speed paint of an alien girl !

HULKBUSTER SHORT FILM

This Concept Art was done for a short film currently being made by Anthony McGrath and Mark Cushley, it features The Hulk being fought by Iron Man in his HulkBuster Armour. This was a dream picture to do and I'm currently working on more images which I'll share when I can, it's especially exciting to note that there's rumoured to be a similar face off in Marvels' Avengers : Age of Ultron movie due to come out next year !

The project homepage can be found here https://www.facebook.com/ironmanmkz  so please give it your support, head over there to check out animation tests and regular updates, the work going into this by these talented guys is truly fantastic and it's a thrill to be a part of.

STAR WARS : SITH DROID

Continuing the Star Wars thumbnails.....I used the Interrogation droid from Episode IV and Sith Probe Droid from Episode I as benchmarks to work from, the addition of legs echoes those seen on the b'omarr monk in Jabba's Palace !

STAR WARS : MASTER LUKE SKYWALKER

Another quick Star Wars concept, this time depicting Mark Hamill as an older Luke Skywalker as I imagine he may appear in Episode VII (..and using the Alec Guinness Obi Wan Kenobi as a guide)

STAR WARS : PRINCESS LEIA

Second Star Wars character, this time I thought I'd paint Classic Episode IV Princess Leia !

STAR WARS : ALIEN PILOT

OK, first off.... I LOVE Star Wars..it's the film that made me want to draw and paint as a child and with a new trilogy (and more films) on the horizon I'm more excited than ever !

I've decided to paint some brand new characters just for fun (as well as some original classic heroes and villains) This guy I imagined as an alien pilot or heavy construction worker, someone you may see in the background of a busy alien world in Episode VII. 
 
Check back soon for more !

ANT MAN CONCEPT

Absolutely loving the Marvel movies that have been coming out over the past few years, so just for fun I thought I'd do an image of Paul Rudd as he might appear in next years Ant Man movie, note that I'm basing this costume on the one briefly seen in test footage that was shown a while back.

WARHAMMER 40000 : KILLTEAM PAINTINGS



Found these hid away in my PC, thought I'd share them...they were pretty quick paintings done while discusing KillTeam 2 ideas back at THQ. As an Artist it was great to finally get to work on Choas images !

CREATURE FEATURE

Latest  black and white Creature Portrait...this time using some interesting photo ref I got from the local zoo of Turkey head detailing ( I believe the fleshy area in question is called the Wattle or Major Caruncle) and then combined it with a portrait photo to create a human in the process of mutation.
