Marlybone sketches

Trash piles and broken props. I know everyone has a secret desire to smash up old English furniture. Quick sketching like this is the most fun for me. I get to explore a lot of ideas quickly without getting bogged down in rendering. The challenge is to always make this stuff appealing. Whether its a pile of fish bones or a wooden chair Im always trying to find a way to give this stuff personality. Every element of the world should have as much personality as the characters.

More Marleybone

Scrooge concept and a few other pieces from Marleybone. The props were fun- trying to get as much personality in a piece of furniture or weapon as we do in a character.

Wizard101 Avalon

When we start a new zone in Wizard101 we will sometimes do "map" concepts that just indicate the general geography and color mood. these two are from Avalon. And a couple magic mushrooms too. You cant have a fantasy world without magic mushrooms.

Pirate101 Mooshu concepts

Heres a bunch of characters I concepted for the Mooshu world of Pirate101. they were just released on the website. Theres some pretty cool descriptions of each one of these guys so check it out if you have a chance. Also check out the interview with Jeff Toney on the Pirates of the Spiral. Our game is now in a closed Beta release and the reviews im hearing are amazing. Its definitely been a BLAST to work on a more stylized "fun" game. hard to believe ive been here over a YEAR now. Kinda reminds me of the old Disney days...
