Game Designs and Concepts

Over Winter while I was interning at Deep Sky Studios here in Portland, OR. I was given the task to do  over a few weeks to concept out some designs for different levels and obstacles for a game they are working on called "Scooter Shooter", which is a game for their animated series "Og's Adventures". So here are some of the designs and concepts I came up with and that you may or may not find in the game once it is complete; which might be soon.

First I post the Lava Level designs, which I feel is my top favorite designs. You'll notice that i like to write little notes to myself and the team about what things are, what they do, or even how they work. Can I say that Level design is loads of fun and hopefully I will get to work on some more in the future, because I had a lot of fun.

Oh and I should point out that the game is a traditional Platform game in the same format as the Megaman Series, but done in flash with higher resolution.

Musical Birds

Recently I was reading the newest issue of National Geographic and they had an interesting article about a species of bird from central and south America. They are pretty cool. They have especially designed feathers with hollow chambers that when struck together create chime like
tones. The have several different feathers of varied thickness and lengths that can create many different tones. They use all of this just to mate.
Anyway, here is a quick paint I did of one of these birds.

The Goblins are coming

So a while back I started to work on a co-operative table top role playing game about Goblins. The game mechanics and storyline are just about done being written up and will be going into the play testing stage.
However, i have working on conceptual designs and look of the art work for the game book that will help set the some what light hearted mood of the game.

The game consists of several different breeds of Goblins that will also have some variations that can be mix in.
This is one of the illustrations that will go into the game book that I just finished.

Tasks can only be completed with co-operation of all goblins in play.
