This week I had an internet follower let me know he was visiting Osaka where I live so he and his partner met me for dinner. After some talking I found out that he is an art director with a keen interest in games development, specially games with unique atmospheres such as Journey, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus etc. He was kind enough to show me some of his work which inspired me to return to my roots and tackle that style of work again. Recently i’ve been focusing on Triple-A game art-styles, but I really wanted to get back to it because I used to draw it…. a lot.
After looking through some of my old stuff I was curious to redraw this piece for a third time to see how much i’ve improved in the past few years.
Here was the result from the past couple of evenings:
Fingers crossed it’ll look even better in 3 more years!
