Fun Reference, Fun Job!
I recently finished “Let’s Make a Deal” for Fantasy Hero Complete over at Hero Games. It was a really fun job to work on. Part of this was because one of the parameters of the art order was that everyone on the cover had to be smiling or laughing. Hero Games wants to push that games are fun, and to help show this, the characters on their games should look like they’re having a good time. Initially this seemed quite challenging. In gaming art I do a lot of angry people fighting. Once I got started it was really easy. Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a pretty goofy guy. I tapped into my inner goof ball and had a blast.
Right from the start things went well. The photo shoots were fun. The models (myself included) were encouraged to laugh, and I ended up with some great reference.
Don’t get me wrong. I still like to paint dark and creepy stuff, but every now and again, I hope to be able to paint laughing people!
